College of Business (WBUAD)
Management for Aeronautical Science
An introductory course in aeronautics to provide students an orientation in aviation and other aerospace related topics appropriate to management degree programs. Subjects include: aviation careers; the science of flight; aviation safety managerial responsibilities; passenger and cargo security issues; safety and human factors issues; aircraft airworthiness certifications; aviation resources; the aviation environment; and meteorology.

To provide a foundation of specialized knowledge in aviation and aerospace systems appropriate to the management degree. The student should demonstrate an understanding of the different systems of aviation/aerospace, an insight into how these systems function in the aviation/aerospace industry, and an understanding of how managers’ responsibilities relate to the aviation environment in which they operate.

On completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Explain the qualifications, attributes, ethics, certifications, and responsibilities of aviation professionals and examine the financial and educational requirements of those aviation careers.

2. Describe the requirements and limitations of all classes of FAA certifications to include pilot, maintenance, avionics, dispatch, airports and air traffic control.

3. Explain the airworthiness considerations, aerodynamic/performance capabilities of aircraft and discuss the importance of environmental factors affecting aircraft performance.

4. Describe the characteristics of aircraft propulsion, control, electrical, environmental, and hydraulic systems.

5. Discuss aviation safety and TSA security concerns including the FAAs Safety Management Systems Program (SMS), aircraft accident prevention programs, National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) responsibilities and their regulations on accident reporting, and the regulations, policies, and procedures of the Transportation Security Agency.

6. Determine the responsibilities of management in relation to pilots, mechanics, and owners regarding human factors and crew resource management.

7. Explain the framework of National and International Laws and Regulations that regulate the aviation industry.

8. Explain the impact of airport certification, design, development, operations, funding, environmental issues, and environmental laws on airport systems.

9. Outline the basic structure of the national airspace system and explain air traffic control systems between enroute, terminal, tower, and flight service functions; and describe equipment and capacity limits. Describe the impact of the FAA's National Airspace System Plan (NASP) on current air traffic control system.

10. Explain aviation company’s responsibilities and policies as they relate to weather hazards, structure and energy of the atmosphere, and air mass circulation and fronts. Use weather observations, analysis, and forecasting to determine risk management policies for critical weather situations and severe storms.

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.
