Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) on Careers

FAQ on  suggested high school courses

It would be a good start to take as much math, physics and chemistry as you can.


FAQ on  summer programs

Go to http://www.yahoo.com and type in their search box the following: aviation (or "aeronautics") summer camp ____ (fill in the blank with the year). You might want to investigate the top twenty.


FAQ on  list of Aeronautical/Aerospace Colleges and Universities

ALLSTAR is an information only website that gives you other possibilities to find schooling (see
http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/aero/edulist.htm   or  http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/aero/techlist.htm ).


FAQ on  university rankings

You can get an idea of the ranking of the schools that provide aerospace engineering by looking at the US News and World Report guide to schools put out each year.


FAQ on  information about schools

If you refer to ALLSTAR, we are not a school that grants degrees. We are an internet website with information about aeronautics. If you are referring to another school, then you will have to go back to either http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/aero/edulist.htm   or  http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/aero/techlist.htm, find the school you are interested in and write to them either at their link email address or use their regular address to ask for information.


FAQ on  taking aviation/ technical courses while being abroad

You might try the university of phoenix program (use the search engines of the internet to find this program). They do a lot of online work and perhaps you can find a program offered on line through them. Try contacting some of the airframe and powerplant (A&P) schools listed on our website (http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/aero/techlist.htm) and see if they do distance learning. Otherwise you will have to check on the internet for companies who do. You can also check out http://www.aerolearn.com.They may have some courses related to the subject you are interested in learning.

please check the ALLSTAR site under level 3 careers ( http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/aero/career3.htm ). You will find  information there about the requirements of all types of pilot positions  as well as schools for aviation, aerospace engineering and general engineering degrees. You can also contact your local airline as well as U.S.   based airlines to find out their requirements for pilots.


FAQ on job options for an earonautical engineer

There are possibilities in both the research and development side of aeronautics as well as the peripheral side (such as sales and products). Such background can be used in many areas, such as fluid mechanics, design, structural mechanics, and automatic control, to name a few.


FAQ on airline job opportunities

Go to http://www.avsupport.com . There they have a section on jobs and job applications. You should be able to do it there. If not, go to the airline's website and you should find a job section that you can access.

FAQ on requirements for a position at NASA

Go to the website http://www.nasa.gov and look under jobs to see that all of the jobs require US citizenship or at least a green card. For aeronautics, you will need to take chemistry, physics and mathematics as a minimum and to take as many of those type of classes as you can. Also when you go to college, follow a course of study in aeronautics or mechanical engineering.
