Self-regulated learning is an important element of student performance and has been found to be linked with content domains. Aviation courses are complex yet serve as the foundation for student success in the flight environment. Since it is critical that students master the content, it is important to determine how students approach learning in these courses. Participants in this study completed a survey consisting of course-related selected-response questions, and open-ended questions focusing on their study habits. Results of the study portray an interesting insight into the learning strategies used by collegiate aviation students. Analyses appear to indicate that learning techniques may need to be improved to promote more successful learning in these types of courses.
