Dr. Cline is a Registered Nurse with over thirty years experience in Critical Care, Emergency, and Flight Nursing. He earned both a MS in Aviation and a Ph.D. in Aerospace Sciences from the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences at the University of North Dakota (UND). He is a very student centric professor who believes that very little learning takes place while sitting down. Towards that end his motto is “get their backsides out of their chairs.” It is not uncommon to walk past his classroom and see students standing up, waving their arms, doing calisthenics, or working in small groups. Dr. Cline believes that while lecture is necessary to introduce a subject, he has failed his students if that is the primary form of instruction on that day.

Areas of Expertise

Dr. Cline’s research emphasizes human factors in aviation, specifically the intersection of aviation and gender. His present research explores how family life issues influence the decision to either pursue a career in aviation, or remain in the field after becoming a commercial pilot. His previous research dealt with the effect of mentoring on female Airline Transport pilots (ATP) and the go/no go decision in helicopter EMS. Dr. Cline is also heavily involved in the burgeoning field of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). He believes these systems will not only change aviation, but also society.
