California Aeronautical University (CAU) is proud to announce that its growing aviation university has officially opened the doors of its newest campus location at Falcon Field Airport (KFFZ) in Mesa, Arizona.

With this new campus location, CAU will begin offering its fast-paced, year-round flight training and degree programs to better serve students in the greater Phoenix area. Programs available include the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Associate of Science in Aviation Studies, and the University's new rotorcraft helicopter program.

Students enrolled at the Arizona campus will be prepared for a wide range of potential career opportunities in the aviation industry and beyond. All students are eligible for graduate services and can benefit from the University's strong industry partnerships, including regional airlines and industry organizations.

CAU has been working diligently to expand its reach into new markets to prepare the next generation of aviation professionals with its specialized programs. Through the University's outreach efforts, CAU's goal is to open the eyes of young people to the possibility of starting careers as professional pilots and aviation business professionals.

"Most students don't even consider careers as pilots because they think it's out of reach," says California Aeronautical University President, Matthew Johnston. "We hope to show students that becoming a professional pilot or other aviation professional is not only possible, but is a realistic long-term career option. CAU serves students from all over the country with our locations in California and our online programs, and we're excited to add our newest campus at Falcon Field to better support students looking to receive an aviation education in Arizona."

Instruction of all courses, including flight labs on the University's fleet, is delivered by CAU faculty. Students in the aeronautics programs also earn numerous certificates and ratings within their degree program.

California Aeronautical University at Falcon Field is located at 4710 East Falcon Drive, Suite 105 in Mesa, Arizona. Applications are now being accepted for the next class.
