The Jasper County Airport has established a summer Airport Management Internship Program, which allows students to align educational knowledge with real world experiences in the aviation industry. The Airport Management internship is sponsored by the Jasper County Airport Authority, which owns and operates the Jasper County Airport.

This internship program is designed to give students exposure to airport management, operations, safety, maintenance, and the airport’s regulatory organizational structure. The goal is to allow students the opportunity to explore areas in which to specialize post-graduation. The intern will learn the needs of an airport in the day-to-day operations dealing with tenants, transient traffic, and other airport administration. Additionally, the intern will be expected to accurately complete assigned projects and tasks in relation to aviation management.
