SUU Aviation Working to Change FAA Curriculum | 2018 News and Press | News & Press | SUU


Aviation schools around the country are mandated by law to adhere to the curriculum drafted by the Federal Aviation Administration under the U.S Department of Transportation. This curriculum cannot be changed or modified by schools by any means, even though requirements for what is taught have not been adequately updated since 1962. That means today’s technicians are being taught curriculum that was created over 56 years ago, before the invention of cell phones, GPS, personal computers or the Internet. Southern Utah University wants to change all of that.
