This course introduces students to the exciting world of aviation. It is the cornerstone for all other aviation courses that students will work on while undertaking their degree in aviation. It will use a brief history of aviation as the foundation stone to then build students’ knowledge and understanding of the way that the modern aviation industry operates now and how it may operate into the future. Students will be exposed to the spectrum of aviation systems and organisations so that they have the best information to base their careers upon.

This course briefly studies the history of the aviation industry and students investigate and experience the requirements of discipline and professionalism in this industry. The history of the industry will be used to develop an understanding of the modern aviation industry and how the industry is currently managed and governed as well as how airlines, airports, air traffic control and other aviation entities operate and combine to create this exciting and innovative industry. Students will begin their professional development in the industry in this course concomitantly with other first year courses by investigating and experiencing aspects of the industry such as appropriate dress, bearing, professional attitudes and non-technical skills.
