Western Michigan University: College of Aviation Celebrates 75 Years In 2014

BATTLE CREEK, MICH. – Beginning in 1939 with a maintenance program, Western Michigan University (WMU) involvement with aviation education has expanded to offer degrees in aviation flight science, aviation management and aviation maintenance technology.

In 1999, the existing WMU School of Aviation became the WMU College of Aviation, making it the university’s seventh college.

Currently with a fleet of advanced training aircraft, modern facilities in Battle Creek and more than 700 undergraduate students in the program, celebrating 75 years of aviation education is a historic event.

WMU’s College of Aviation will hold events throughout the next few months, culminating in a 75th Anniversary Celebration Gala on October 24 (www.wmich.edu/aviation/).
