Bachelor of Arts in General Aviation in Poland, Rzeszow

Do you dream of working in the most dynamically growing sector of aviation? Did you know that flights classified as general aviation constitute the majority of air traffic in the world, and they are operated by more than 362,000 aircraft? In the United States alone there are only 500 airports which operate according to the regular flight schedule, while more than 5,000 airports provide services for general aviation.

Which of these airport’s development would you like to contribute to?

General aviation operations are these flights which are not planned in the regular flight schedule. What is more, they do not include holiday charter flights which appear on flight schedules. General Aviation  is a market segment related to air operations, such as small aircraft business flights (aircraft which take on board up to 20 passengers mostly from large corporations, clubs, as well as film stars, etc.) but also glider flights, planes carrying sky-divers and pilot training flights.

We have been carrying out research on the development of aviation market in Poland and around the world for many years, with major emphasis placed on the labour market in the sector. We respond to market needs and signals, talk to our business partners, aviation industry staff, as well as our Aviation Management alumni, who already work for various airlines, airports and companies related to the aviation industry. Our graduates are successful. Be one of them!

Expert’s Opinion

The General Aviation study programme is an excellent choice for aviation enthusiasts. Earnings on the Polish market currently range between 3,000 – 3,500 PLN, but here the market is still in its infancy. If you consider the West and specialists, the earnings range from $4,000 for those entering the market to as much as $7,000 for professionals with experience. Additional education in the field of Economics will make one’s chances of getting a job in companies dealing with audits, HR as well as economic and financial analyses bigger. One of the biggest advantages of the specialisation is the university’s experience in running the Aviation Management programme in the English language. The UITM has been running the study programme for more than 7 years and its graduates find jobs in the aviation sector worldwide.
