At Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, we know something about what it takes to become a pilot. After all, we’ve been educating and training civilian and military flyers since 1928. Today’s aviation industry is very different from what it was more than eighty years ago. Tomorrow’s aviation industry will be still more different, shaped by technologies now in the testing phase and regulations that have yet to be written. What’s certain about aviation is that it attracts adventurous characters, year after year.

You will initially want a Third-Class Medical Certificate, which is required for student pilots, private pilots, and recreational pilots. The AME will check your
