The Center for Aviation and Space Competence (CFAC-HSG) is an independent institution of the University of St.Gallen and was founded on July 1, 2005, as Switzerland's first aviation competence center. We offer services as well as basic and advanced training courses in aviation and provide service projects, such as market research and studies. We are using the knowledge that has been generated through research, publications and the experience of our academic advisory board members, partners and our Managing Director Andreas Wittmer with his Team.
