[SIZE=2]The Aviation Institute links Broward College's (BC) South Campus with North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines. It's the only public facility in South Florida with direct access to an airport dedicated to the training of aviation professionals and technicians. Since 1966 our aviation school has been preparing students for careers in: Professional Pilot Technology, Aviation
Maintenance Management, Aviation Operations, Airport Operations Management, and Air Traffic Control.
The Air Traffic Control program is designed to provide qualified applicants to fill developmental air traffic control specialist (ATCS) positions. All ATC training is done in our state-of- the-art facility in Miramar Town Center where the college has a $1 million laboratory that includes radar, enroute and tower simulators to provide students with the technical and academic skills necessary to succeed.
The Aviation Institute also provides hands-on training to prepare students in the competitive field of aviation maintenance. It provides FAA approved certificate programs in Airframe and Powerplant, and FCC approved certificate in Avionics.
Professional Pilots are trained in partnership with Delta Connection Academy (DCA) using airline standards in technologically advanced aircraft, the Cirrus SR-20. Our school prepares students for private pilot/ instrument rating, commercial pilot/multi-engine rating, and flight instructor (CFI) and flight instrument instructor (CFII) FAA certifications.
Airport Operations Management and Aviation Operations are two degrees designed for individuals whose career objectives include a wide variety of staff, operational, management or administrative positions in the aviation field.
