Why Earn a Aviation Logistics Minor?

What is “Aviation Logistics?” It is increasing the value (or utility) of products or services with air transportation. Firms specializing in the movement of goods and people by air, and the large numbers of companies that support them, represent the area of aviation logistics.

It includes answers to the questions of how aviation interacts with other modes of transportation in servicing supply chains, domestically and internationally. What is the cost for each transportation mode? What is the delivery time? How does it satisfy the customer’s expectations?

A minor in Aviation Logistics creates opportunities for you to acquire the following knowledge and skills:

  • Basic understanding of the aviation industry, its regulations and capabilities
  • Maintenance operations
  • Safety management systems
  • Passenger and cargo operations
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Airport operations and management
