Commercial Aviation Management


The Commercial Aviation Management (CAM)  program offers a unique combination of academic and applied instruction and is a stepping stone to a career in aviation. CAM students graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Management and Organizational Studies (BMOS), with specialized courses in aviation management. This Specialization may be taken with or without the flight-training option, so you can earn a Transport Canada approved Integrated Commercial Pilot’s Licence while attaining a BMOS Degree.

Areas of Study

Commercial Aviation Management
(Honors Specialization, Honors Double Major, Specialization)

Complete Courses in:

  • Human Factors in Aviation
  • Aviation Law
  • Airport Planning
  • Airline Management



Entry into the CAM program within DAN Management is limited and highly competitive. All students interested must apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre using the program code EDF for those interested in the flight option or EDN for those who are interested in the non-flight option.

Why Choose Commercial Aviation Management at Western?

The credentials you earn allow you to act as a professional pilot while being capable of assuming management responsibilities, both on the ground and in the air.  In addition, as pilots are required to hold a valid medical certificate, in the unfortunate event of an unforeseen medical issue a BMOS degree allows students to pursue professional positions in aviation management (which is not an option with a college-level pilot program).
