Aviator College

Hi All,

I am looking for information regarding Aviator College of Aeronautical Science & Technology based in Fort Pierce, Florida. Ideally i want to hear from current/past students or current/past instructors who have studied there before. Good or bad?.

I have researched almost everywhere and it appears there is nothing or no rating about the school. Are they approved by FAA to conduct Part 141 training programs? Their piloting course structure and time frame of completing the course appears to be rather unrealistic.

Any information either good or bad about them will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

GUJ.

I know nothing about it

but I did put a link to a search and on the second page there is a report that there are many law suits against this place.

I've been a pilot since before you were born. IF I WENT TO A COLLEGE for flying I think I would look into a bonafide state run school in the USA. Maybe the one in North Dakota. Or University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana. Or Purdue.

There may be others, but i wouldn't go to anyplace calling itself an aviation college that wasn't a state run school.

BE CAREFUL with your MONEY>

That North Dakota place looks pretty good. I think at one time a state run university in San Jose California was good too, but that was years ago.


There was enough in that google search to make me NOT want to go to Fort Pierce

Here is a comprehensive list of collegiate/university aviation programs available in the US, put together by AOPA. There are a lot more programs than just Embry Riddle, Purdue, North Dakota, etc...

Aviator college

Aviator College to the best of my knowledge is associated with Gulf Coast Training Solutions. This is the company that does the prep for the EASA exams. They are located at the same facility. Aviator College is been in business for long long time, so if you want to get your EASA conversion as well, it might be a good choise for you.
Good Luck in your endeavors.

Hi mate,

Do you have a similar list just for approved FAA Part 141 flying schools. No need for colleges offering degrees or associate degrees. Just training schools conducting the normal pathway training (PPL, IR, CPL and ME add on).

Thanks in advance.

Gear Up Job,

The list of schools in the US is overwhelming but the FAA has a searchable database of all part 141 schools (strictly part 61 schools will not be listed).

Federal Aviation Administration - Pilot Schools

Easiest way to search is to just select a state and hit search.
