CAU is proud to have developed valuable airline partnerships with a number of airlines and aviation companies.
Our airline partners have a great deal of trust in the training we provide at CAU and often students receive conditional job offers even before they graduate. Graduates become a part of this larger network and reap the benefits of these relationships. See below for a list of our airline partners:
