California Aeronautical University (CAU) hosted a grand opening at Montgomery-Gibbs Airport in San Diego, California, to celebrate its growth.

California Aeronautical University (CAU) entered San Diego County in 2018. Due to the university’s student population growth and its goal to consistently improve resources and services for students, the school recently moved into a newer, more spacious facility within the airport.

The grand opening celebrated this new facility as a significant achievement in CAU’s history. The event showcased a ribbon-cutting ceremony, as well as tours of the new flight training site.

“The new facility features classrooms, dedicated space for flight planning, direct access to the ramp, our Redbird flight simulator, and plenty of room to grow,” said Matthew Johnston, President of California Aeronautical University.

CAU offers fast-paced, career-focused degree programs to prepare students for careers in aviation, including its flagship Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics degree program. Students can earn six certificates and ratings along with their degree and graduate in about three years.

“We’ve been seeing more and more interest in aviation from the San Diego market recently,” adds Johnston. “With such a  rich community of veterans, active military members, and other aspiring pilots, we’re honored to partner with these students on their aviation journey and look forward to helping them reach their career goals.”
