PHOENIX — California Aeronautical University announced last week it has opened a new campus at Falcon Field Airport in Mesa and is offering students year-round flight training and a variety of degree programs.
Programs available include a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Associate of Science in Aviation Studies and the school’s new rotorcraft helicopter program.
The Mesa location marks the fourth overall and the first outside of California, with campuses at Oxnard Airport in Ventura County and in San Diego County at the Montgomery Field Airport as well as the main campus at Bakersfield International Airport.
“We’re excited to add our newest campus at Falcon Field to better support students looking to receive an aviation education in Arizona,” Matthew Johnston, California Aeronautical University president, said in a press release.
All courses at the Mesa campus, including flight labs on the University’s fleet, will be taught by California Aeronautical University faculty, according to the release, with students in the aeronautics program also earning numerous certificates and ratings within their degree program.
Students in the program are eligible for graduate services and can take advantage of university partnerships, including regional airlines and industry organizations.
Applications are now being accepted for the next class.
In addition to its physical locations, California Aeronautical University also has an online program offering a Master of Business Administration and Master of Aviation Science.
