Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology has for more than 80 years been teaching students like you how to take a passion for aviation and turn it into a career you will love. Our founder, W.G. Skelly, was convinced that air transportation would become the technology of the future and bring with it a need for skilled pilots and aircraft technicians. The year was 1928, and he was as right. This is why Spartan College, with its learning-by-doing teaching philosophy, has been a leader in aviation education for three quarters of a century.
Spartan College´s pilot training curriculum is uniquely designed to optimize the flight hours towards the completion of your pilot training program. Spartan College offers both FAA part 61 and 141 training, providing you maximum flexibility.
