Industry Quotes

The flight education I received at Auburn was superb. During my first airline interview my education at Auburn was recognized immediately. I knew I had made the right choice when the interviewer said to me, ‘You’re hired’.
Lee Mills, FedEx Express
My time at Auburn was some of the best time spent in learning about aviation.  My education gave me the knowledge necessary to be a leader in my company‚Äôs aviation department.  I would recommend the Aviation Management program to anyone interested in a career in aviation.
Mike Smith, Airport Manager
The well rounded Aviation Management program at Auburn prepared me well for fantastic parallel careers.  On the aviation side, beginning as a flight instructor at Auburn, I flew both military and civilian and accumulated over 6,000 hours of flying time.  At the same time, I joined a company that we grew from 120 employees to over 7,000, and retired as Executive Vice President.  My Auburn experience was so gratifying that I was able to give back to Auburn by endowing four scholarships.
