School of Aviation

The first lesson you will learn at Dowling’s School of Aviation is that there are many exciting careers in aviation besides flying planes. Our graduates are intensely recruited because employers know they have a balanced liberal arts background as well as experience with the industry’s most advanced equipment.

The mission of the School of Aviation is to provide a liberal education leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in either Aviation Management or Aerospace Systems Technology. These degree programs prepare students for for entry into commercial and military aviation, airports, air traffic control and other areas of the air transport and aerospace industry.  The degree programs also prepare students for further research and study in management, technology, mathematics in graduate level degree programs.
The School of Aviation at Dowling College is situated at Brookhaven Airport, Shirley, New York.  The airport campus is in a region of New York airspace that enables extensive flying opportunities not typically found at other collegiate aviation institutions. The flight training is conducted at the campus, and students have access to a fleet of various Cessna and light sport aircraft. In addition to our training aircraft, FAA certified flight training devices are used for providing simulation training.  This provides educational opportunities that are ideal for use during bad weather, practice of emergency procedures, and provide remedial review in a cost effective manner.
