OUR CURRICULUM Liberty's aeronautics programs are answering the call to provide highly skilled professional pilots, UAS operators, maintenance leaders, administrators, and flight attendants. Take a look at how Liberty University is becoming one of the most respected aviation programs in the country. DEGREE PROGRAMS Aeronautics – On Campus Airline Flight Attendant – On Campus Aviation – Online Aviation Administration – On Campus Aviation Maintenance – On Campus Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) – On Campus Aviation Maintenance Management* – Online One of The Nation's Fastest Growing aeronautics programs *This degree requires an already earned Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) certificate. My Mentor and Me: C ARL A AND CHRYSTINA Carla Stefaniak, WAI 74310, and Chrystina Jones, WAI 45090, both work at McConnell Air Force Base. Chrystina secured funding for two people from the Wing Staff to attend the WAI2017 conference in Orlando. Chrystina selected Carla as the second person as she is a public affairs officer who could spread the word about WAI. The two attended the conference together and Chrystina adds, "Carla even caught the flying bug while she was there. She is now pursuing her private pilot certificate! She also made the trip fun with her continual positive energy." C ARL A On being a mentor herself: I hope as I continue to grow and gain more experience, I can become that mentor for some- one else. Even when her mentor isn't there… When I face a decision, I usually remember her talking with me about thinking things through and looking at a problem from a different perspective. Unforgettable mentor advice on success: I'll never forget when she said, "First just hope that in whatever you do you can have a positive impact on the people around you." I was really moved by this and I took a hard look at my goals for the future because I never considered what my definition of suc- cess would be. I hope that my career and personal goals can all end with having impacted others' lives for the better. Carla Stefaniak (L) and ChrysƟna Jones (R)
