Aviation Outlook

Presented by Embry-Riddle’s Deans of Aviation

The coronavirus pandemic has adversely impacted the global aviation industry in many ways, but the long-term economic outlook offers reasons for optimism when it comes to growth and future career opportunities. To understand the new landscape, Embry-Riddle experts are leveraging their connections with the leaders who will set the trends, drive innovation and shape the industry of tomorrow.

Their viewpoints will be shared in “Aviation Outlook,” a series of live, interactive webinars that will examine the current and future state of the industry through the eyes of those who lead it. Presented by the deans of Embry-Riddle’s three Aviation Colleges, each webinar will provide the most recent and relevant industry information with prospective and current students, alumni and industry friends.

In these hour-long events, our guests will share insights and ideas gleaned from navigating the current crisis, as well as their visions for the future. Guests also will discuss their own career paths and the exciting options that the aviation industry is still primed to offer.

The free webinars, scheduled every two to four weeks, are open to all and use a format that allows for audience participation regardless of location. Moderated by Assistant Professor of Aeronautical Science Bob Thomas, Ph.D. The live events will be hosted on Zoom.
