The onset of a new industrial revolution calls for certain strategic changes. Transformations in the aviation industry are discussed. A formula for the flight efficiency is presented. Composites that increase the flight efficiency are considered. Strategies for the education of aviation specialists in this era are outlined. The applicability of these strategies is illustrated for a course on strategic management. A new index of educational efficiency is proposed, taking account of new competencies appropriate to changing times. Results obtained by means of the proposed model are presented. The role of learning organizations at a time of change is analyzed.
