Molding aviation industry professionals.

The year-long Properties, Planning, and Construction Internship program is designed to introduce future airport managers to the many facets of a commercial service airport with a concentration on business and administration. Our intern will have an immersive experience with emphasis on what it takes to develop, maintain, and enhance “Doing business with the COS Airport.” There will be opportunities to assist with projects and support airport management and others in the coordination and compliance of airport development, planning, construction, maintenance, and utilization. Each day will look different and provide a blend of in-office and on-site responsibilities and learnings relating to general and corporate aviation, commercial aviation, military aviation, and business park development. (COS is proud to say all past interns have found exciting positions in the aviation industry due partly to their experience and success at COS.)
