This study examined aviation programs in accredited postsecondary institutions in the United States for the years 1950 and 1985. The goals were to compare schools with aviation programs in operation in 1985 with those in operation in 1950 to determine what changes had occurred; and then, to investigate what influences and pressures had caused those changes. If an increase or a decrease in aviation programs offered was discovered, then reasons would be sought to explain this increase or decrease.
