Degree: Aviation
Graduation Year: 2012

I attended Spartan College of Aeronautics between August 4, 2008 and June 6, 2011. I will always be thankful to Spartan for its training, as I would say it is second to none in the world of aviation. I attended Spartan after living what some may call the "college dropout" life. I was originally enrolled in the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Temple, TX. I had a 3.75 average my first year with a promising outlook as a math and computer science double major. However, I still had some growing up to do. I moved off campus and watched my GPA fall to a 1.5 and I was put on academic suspension for my actions. After moving back home with my parents, and determining to live out my dream to be a pilot like my father (an F16 driver), I enrolled in Spartan College. I was drawn to it with the positive outlook to one day be doing what I do now, flight instructing. The road was not an easy one however. The program is very demanding, and I would say that only those who truly invested all their effort made it through the training. In fact, I find those who have negative comments on sites such as this one are those very students I remember not studying and cancelling their flight lessons constantly. Like any college, Spartan demands individuals to be prepared for their training, which will always mean cracking open a book. After two and a half years or so I graduated the program. I look back on my training and realize that Spartan gave me more than what I paid for. It gave me a true chance to grow up. You learn to always gain knowledge and strive to achieve success every day. There is nothing I can thank the college for more than that. Believe me; the flight training I received through the program is second to none. I would gladly go back and make that same life changing decision over and over again. So, if you plan on attending a flight college in order to one day live the dream of being a professional pilot, I would highly recommend my alma mater. But, I would caution you to know what you are signing up for. Do not attend this program, or any for that matter, thinking that it will be a breeze. You will be tested and you will be pushed to achieve greatness. You will have times or great triumph, like when you experience the joy of becoming a certified pilot, but you will also times of frustration, like after failing a stage check. However, it is those experiences that account for the skills and knowledge you will possess once you graduate and join the community of aviators. At the end of it all you will be able to look back on your training and hopefully feel the same thankfulness I feel now. Spartan is challenging and tough, but it makes you a better pilot and one determined individual once you complete the program! Best of luck in your selection of a professional program! Maybe one day we'll see each other at FL350!

Degree: Avionics Maintenance Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

Who are all these cry babies badmouthing Spartan? I graduated recently and had job offers before graduating. I am working in the field I trained for and am completely satisfied. If you put in the hard work you will succeed. Sure the facilities were not perfect, but I went there to get my A&P certificates plus some degrees. And so far they have delivered. I recommend Spartan, they have a good name in the industry that just might give you the edge you need. Do not listen to disgruntled cry babies.

I enjoyed my time at Spartan College. Their was a hands on approach that made it fun and educational at the same time. I really loved the fact that my peers came from all over the country and the world. I still have friends that live across the globe.

Graduation Year: 2013

When I read that Spartan has been around for decades I knew that it was a legit school that I can attend to receive my NDT degree. Tulsa was as I suspected, a snoozer town, but I made the most of it. The instructors were overall helpful as long as you put the effort you succeeded. Best part about boring town was that it helped me study more and party less.
