Education is carried out based on four pillars of education, namely learning to know, lerning to do, learning to be and learning to live together. College readiness is also measurable and achievable, which is overseen by the Quality Assurance Unit and the Internal Inspection Unit who continue to work to ensure that the Quality Standards continue to run in accordance with established regulations. Suggestions offered for the Surabaya Aviation Polytechnic are to keep on updating the development of the aviation industry, continue to improve cooperation with stake holders, and continue to improve the quality of human resources educators and management.
