The Aviation Management Certificate is designed for students with no previous flight experience.  Students with flight training hours must complete a flight review to customize their training plan.  Advanced placement students will be given credit for a maximum of 45 flight hours and will be required to complete BFC ground school.  Most advance placement students choose to add the Instructor Rating or Multi IFR rating to their final term to maximize their career options upon graduation. Speak to the Program Coordinator to choose the best option for you.
