If you have any questions with regards to the engineering and the mechanics behind airplanes, feel free to drop a dm and I’ll be happy to share with you what we do here at Purdue University. I am also open to discussing about college life including Outdoor clubs, various engineering clubs and Greek life. My inbox is always open :)

Henderson state is also a Flight school as well


College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas (technically Henderson, NV).
Community college offering a Professional Pilot track and a Flight Operation track.

Great place to get a degree in aviation and a fixed wing, single engine commercial certificate


Thanks Dubya for being a point of contact!


Henderson state university. PPT professional pilot track Areonautical science


We’re going to need to organize a little Purdue meetup sometime… ;)


Oh for sure, pretty sure there a decent amount of purdue kids in here


Flight school ATP Flight School. It has multiple locations in the US and is good for all levels of flying.


What site are you at?


I havent started yet but just did the sign up fee for Daytona Beach. Will be doing the ATP fast track program there.


Awesome good luck and congratulations!


Hey y’all I will be starting my second year at ERAU this Fall and can’t wait,

I came to Riddle with my PPL and got my Instrument Rating by the end of my second semester, I will start my Commercial Single next semester, then Commercial Multi and after that I’ll have to chose to either become a CFI or focus on finishing my degree a year early and entering the aviation workforce.

If anyone here has any questions about Embry-Riddle I’d be happy to answer them, and if anyone here goes to Riddle let me know!


Hi, I am interested to know if anyone here in the IFC has any Western U.S. Flight School experience. I know you can look on the web but that does no justice. Anyways, thanks for all the help!



These guys seem to have a lot of locations all over the US (including the west coast)


Thanks, I will definitely check it out!


I am planning on attending Central Washington University when I get to that level, as I can get a degree in commercial aviation.


Highly recommend looking through the PDF below if you’re interested in getting a degree along side of flying. Reason I mention this is because a lot, and I mean about over 90% of them will want you to have a college degree of some sort.

These schools listed below have been accredited by the FAA and meet Restricted ATP minimums. Research more about what R-ATP minimums are if you’re interested.
