AVM-502 Air Carrier Operations

This course integrates the fundamentals of economics, operations, marketing, and finance in developing the overview of Air Carrier Operations. While these major topics are found in any industry, the uniqueness of Air Carrier Operations requires that they be examined in detail specific to the aviation industry. For example, flight routing structure and queuing are clearly unique to Air Carrier Operations and would not be found in a marketing course. Other fundamental content in the course includes security, regulations, and international flight scheduling. The manager with a broad understanding of the industry and its competitive environment is better equipped to work interdisciplinary assignments within the industry and, ultimately, to succeed and progress in an airline operations career.
