GSU Business Aviation Leadership Program

Shifting from Management Effectiveness to Leadership Excellence

The Business Aviation Leadership Program, designed in collaboration with Georgia State University, is a four-day, fast-paced, highly interactive program from a nationally ranked business school.

This program gives a strategic perspective supported by a blend of best practices in leadership development and business aviation, using multimedia presentations, industry case studies, and small-group exercises. The sessions are held at GSU in Atlanta, Georgia, September 11-15, 2023.

Aviation & Excellence

The program focuses on personal leadership effectiveness, developing emotional intelligence, building productive teams, and creating strong links between aviation operations, business strategy and value creation. Participants consistently tell us they leave the workshop more confident and optimistic about their leadership capacity and better equipped to engage in strategy-oriented discussions.

Certified Aviation Manager (CAM)

In accordance with the approval of the Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) Governing Board, attendees of this program are entitled to four points toward completing the application to take the CAM Exam. Additionally, attendees already designated as a CAM will earn four points toward recertification.

Dynamic Approach

Business leadership professors and business aviation practitioners will deliver the program content using simulation activities, multimedia presentations, industry case studies and small-group exercises.


All participants must work in the aviation industry, but do not necessarily have to work at the executive level.
