Franchising and Licensing Development at Signature Flight Support, Florida, USA

“I chose to study at Massey due to its reputable aviation program; this is the only school in the country that offers aviation management as a bachelor’s degree.

I have always been fascinated by airplanes and wanted to study aviation since I was young. The Bachelor of Aviation Management gave me an insight into the aviation industry including hands-on experience within the industry.

I did an internship at Auckland International Airport working on airside operations while doing a research paper on performance measurement. For my final semester I studied at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. I then did a research-based internship with Embry-Riddle’s School of Air Traffic Management.

I work in franchising and licensing development at Signature Flight Support, a fixed-based operator based in Orlando, Florida.

It provides flight support services such as fuelling, hanger space, ground handling and airport maintenance at more than 100 airports worldwide. My role is to assist in expanding Signature’s business portfolio. This includes the Signature Select fixed-base operator licensing program and the Signature Flight Support Hotel Booking Program.

I’m now working towards my Master of Aviation (Professional Practice) via distance learning and expect to graduate in 2018.
