​​Practical, Focused Education for Professional Aviators, Aviation Managers and Air Traffic Controllers

The School of Aviation​ offers something you won't find in many other aviation programs - a business core that's sure to bring you career success. Graduates of JU's two degree programs - in Aviation Management (AVM) or Aviation Management and Flight Operations (AVO) - are also graduates of the Davis College of Business. Whether you plan an aviation career in the skies as a pilot or on the ground as a manager or air traffic controller, a degree from Jacksonville University will give you the aviation and business skills that savvy employers are looking for.​

Jacksonville University is now one of the universities whose graduates can qualify for a Restricted-Airline Transport Pilot (R-ATP) certificate with 1,000 flight hours. Pilots who graduate from non-approved universities and want to be employed as a First Officer for an airline must have 1,500 hours of flight time.
