Many people say that a career in aviation is not just a job, but also a passion. Those that embark on this career path will find they are part of a big family of aviation enthusiasts.
This Tulsa, Oklahoma, flight school has a long-standing history of providing industry-current training for those pursuing a career as a pilot or aircraft mechanic. The United States Air Force recently chose Spartan as its flight school partner for the Coalition Air Force. In addition, the Aviation Maintenance Technology programs at Spartan are approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Founded by William G. Skelly, Spartan is the only flight and pilot school in the nation that was also an aircraft manufacturer. In fact, one of the first side-by-side flying trainers was invented at Spartan. This legacy of manufacturing is of great benefit to the school’s current pilot and aviation students, as Spartan has become one of the best known aviation schools in the country.
Located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, our facilities span more than 247,000 square feet of physical space located at two local airports and house more than 60 aircraft for pilot and aviation technician training. Several training devices, such as radar equipment, ultrasonic testers and much more, are available for a truly hands-on learning experience.
The Spartan College of Aeronautics’ educational philosophy of learn-by-doing provides students in our aviation training programs with the skills needed to succeed. To accomplish this goal, our experienced instructors are committed to providing general education, hands-on-training and classroom theory in all programs.
At Spartan, we strive to provide general education training to complete the student’s knowledge, covering a broad set of general job skill competencies; hands-on-training to provide industry-specific job skills in aviation and other related fields; and theory training to develop the student's industry-specific job skill knowledge.
The hands-on aviation training programs in Tulsa, Oklahoma, begin at the ground level with curriculum that was developed around the assumption that a new student does not have prior knowledge of aviation before beginning college. This building block approach of starting with the fundamentals, moving onto the basics and finishing with advanced coursework can help to build a solid skill set as well as instill a high degree of confidence in the student.
