Industry Advisory Committee

The RMC Aviation Program is very proud of its Industry Aviation Committee, a group of professionals from across the aviation industry who provide advice and direction to the program. One of their main purposes is to connect the program with the industry, helping to ensure RMC graduates have the skills and education necessary for success.
