Hybrid Course Offering
Our hybrid course is delivered through a combination of distance online education and partially on ground.

Through our hybrid course curriculum, your schedule remains flexible and lets you decide where and when studying fits into your life. You can keep your current job and spend time with your family while you pursue a career in aviation mechanics. And on-site training in Tulsa is only seven months!
