In fact, the skills taught at Vaughn College have never been in greater demand. Companies are recruiting engineers, pilots, air traffic controllers, maintenance technicians, operations managers and others in unprecedented numbers. As a result, salaries in these fields are soaring, benefits are generous and schedules are flexible. You can be a part of the next generation of aviation professionals to keep the industry moving in the right direction.
