Study AviationThe aviation industry is an incredibly exciting one that has witnessed exceptional growth in recent years, of about 12 percent per year worldwide. While the global economic crisis is currently affecting all industries, the aviation industry is expected to emerge strongly.
Aviation industry forecasts indicate that the demand for pilots will continue for the foreseeable future since air traffic growth is expected to continue to increase dramatically. Consequently, this projected industry growth provides great opportunities for both those currently involved in the industry and those wishing to become part of it. So, if you are thinking about studying aviation at Griffith, now is an ideal time to start!
