Where Is The Best Place To Start?

Fri Aug 03, 2001 9:05 pm

Hi,

In the long run I would love to become a manager of an airline or similar.

Is there anyone here that is a manager of an airline? Have you got any links to sites where I can get information. Where in the airport is the best place to work to start with so I can work my way up to it? Have you got any information about what is involved with the job? Any information would be great - thanks.

Hey!

Well its not too easy to become a manager of an airline, as you probably can see alot of the managers are older people and there is alot of stress involved.

you are probably best to get a bachelor in business and from there go on to a masters. I know that down here in MEL, RMIT offers a masters in aviation management, however one of the criterias to qualify for this course is a couple of years experinece in airline operations etc.

Also get some work experience in that field... itll look great on your resume! i've done it as a pilot and i've also picked up alot of tips and tricks!

Best of luck!
Mick
