Welcome to CAU
Turn Your Passion for Aviation Into a Career
Do you daydream about a future where you’re the one in the cockpit, flying across the world? Maybe you have a knack for engines and love figuring out how they work. Or just maybe you get a thrill at the idea of moving planes and people through the sky from the inside of a flight tower. If any of these spark your curiosity, a career in aviation might be right for you.
Aviation schools are not all created equally. I’d like to personally invite you to learn about the programs CAU has to offer. Whether you’re interested in our pilot program, aviation maintenance or aviation dispatch, you’ll figure out quickly that we’re different. More than just a pilot school, CAU is an aviation community.
