    Tips for prospective students

    I suggest to keep up with the teachers and the rest of the students, you never want to get left behind. If you find yourself behind then apply yourself and stay after school to get the extra help. Also I suggest that you keep your time down.

    Campus Safety

    Clubs and Activities

    Southside and the Strip district

    Great for these types of students

    Mechanically inclined

    Bang for the buck

    For the education and learning experience this is probably one of the most affordable schools around.

    What to do for fun

    Not much to do if you are under 21- if your not there is a lot of night-life on the weekends on the south side.

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of restaurants in the area, some days the school has vendors such as chick fil-a that come to the school to sell lunch.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms but the school helps you to find affordable housing in the area.

    Academic Rigor

    There are multiple tests every week. Course put you to the test to see how much you actually understand what you are doing.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come prepared to work all day. Tools are a must. Be friendly to your classmates as you will be doing a lot of group activities. Know your limits, don't pretend you know something if you really don't, there are a lot of machines and equipment that can harm you. Great learning environment.

    In three sentences

    This is a well put together program, from the moment you walk in you realize its all about business. Instructors are very knowledgeable in their field, most have hands on experience in the field and one of the great thing about this school is that you can take what you learn and apply it into a multitude of industries not just aviation. This school is great for anyone who is mechanically inclined and enjoy working with their hands, if you are such a person then this is the place to be.
