Trends and Current Problems in Air Transportation
An analysis of selected contemporary issues, problems, and trends facing management in various segments of the aviation industry, including general aviation and the airlines, will be covered. Students apply previously learned concepts to practical problems to develop increased understanding and demonstrate knowledge of the subject.

The objectives of the seminar course are:

2. To develop a systematic analysis of contemporary problems.

3. To seek possible solutions and opportunities to introduce them into the system. The student completing this seminar should be able to identify possible problems in air transportation and select, after careful analysis, the managerial strategies necessary to implement preventive or corrective action.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Identify the role played by the regulators in the aviation environment.

2. Recognize the problems faced by the airline operators.

3. Analyze environmental situations involving consumers' perceived performance of the aviation industry.

4. Evaluate the performance of airline personnel in dealing with consumers.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
