Our Strategic Plan

A strategic plan serves as the guiding force that keeps an institution aligned with its mission, propels its vision forward, and upholds its core values. Developed in tandem with our business plan, the AOD Aviation Academy's strategic plan (2023-2028) delineates key focuses and critical tasks, meticulously aligned with seven strategic pillars. This comprehensive plan received endorsement from our esteemed Board of Trustees in February 2023.

Our strategic plan is a manifestation of our strengths and a catalyst for our ambitions. As we navigate toward the predefined milestones, AOD Aviation Academy is poised to be an innovative and collaborative hub for work, learning, and growth.
