PIAMS is the brainchild of its founder/chairman Capt. Suhail Baluch who conceptualized it as a quality-conscious academic institute for conducting BS (BA) / MBA Aviation Management programs in aviation sciences and management. This pioneering endeavor is the first of its kind not only in Pakistan but also in the region. PIAMS is registered under the Sindh Private Educational Institutions (Regulation & Control) Ordinance 2001. The Institute gained this recognition on 3′ August, 2011 from the Education and Literacy Department, Government of Sindh.
PIAMS is affiliated with University of Karachi and is Pakistan’s first institute which is offering BS (BA) / MBA (Aviation Management programs in the field of aviation & management sciences). In due course, the Institute will gain accreditation of reputed international universities offering degrees in aviation management. PIAMS is a bold and unique venture by Pakistan Airline Pilots’ Association (PALPA), supported and recognized by Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority and the national flag carrier, PIA. P1AMS’ air-conditioned building is situated in a peaceful and posh area of Karachi in proximity to British Consulate.
PIAMS courses have been designed with input from international aviation sources including regulatory bodies and aviation industry practices. The syllabus is targeted towards professional managers who work or aspire to work in aviation related environment.
Because of continual changes in practices and procedures, PIAMS will continue to update and upgrade its syllabi and curriculum to ensure currency with international standards. Our aim is to produce professionals of the highest caliber, whose qualifications will be recognized throughout the world of aviation.
