Rationale

Air travel is a form of transportation in vehicles (such as airplanes and helicopters) that can sustain flight. It provides safety, comfort and the most convenient means of reaching the required destination in the shortest possible time in an affordable manner. The growth of the aviation business worldwide has provided a quantum jump in all aviation related fields ranging from manufacturing of aircraft to the development of related infrastructure and management of various aviation activities. To run the aviation systems efficiently and effectively, human resource development has become a deciding factor. Due to the advanced growth in commercial aviation, the demand for people having the required professional knowledge and skills has risen. At present, very few universities are offering aviation courses in the fields of aviation management and technology.
