Broward College First Community College to Partner with JetBlue

Broward College is the first community college in the nation to partner with JetBlue’s Gateway University, giving students from its Emil Buehler Aviation Institute an opportunity to earn their Professional Pilot Technology AS degree or various FAA flight certificates.

“[JetBlue] approached us for an initial visit and discussion,” said Russell McCaffery, Broward College’s Dean of Transportation Programs. “After a few meetings, site visits and interviews, they officially selected us as one of their partner schools. This reinforces the fact that Broward College provides both quality and value to our students and that we should be one of students’ top choices when considering collegiate flight programs.”

According to some recent reports, long-term demand for newly qualified aviation personnel remains strong; it’s estimated that nearly 650,000 new pilots, 700,000 new maintenance technicians and 940,000 new cabin crew members will be needed to fly and maintain the global commercial fleet over the next 20 years.
