- On AU's aviation legacy
“By having a major in aviation management, the legacy of aviation at Auburn is preserved. It also helps promote the aviation industries in the state by providing graduates who are well-prepared to work in the field.” Bill Hardgrave, dean of Auburn University's College of Business

Students who hoped to become pilots with degrees from Auburn University will now have to earn their professional flight degrees through another flight school.
