Westminster’s Aviation School Earns AABI Accreditation

Salt Lake City - WESTMINSTER COLLEGE’s aviation program in the BILL AND VIEVE GORE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS earned accreditation from the Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI).

In the fall of 2011, Westminster’s aviation program implemented curriculum changes in advance of an expected overhaul of federal regulations prompted by a deadly crash in Buffalo, NY.
