I always wanted to be in aviation, and Spartan gave me the basics to join the work force. I’ve always held a job in aviation since I left Spartan. I never collected a day of unemployment.

I started Spartan the fall of 1985 and graduated the spring of 1987 with an Associate’s degree in avionics. About a month after graduating, I was hired as an AV technician with the University of Delaware and over the years moved up or laterally to various positions. I feel that I have been a superior technician because I was trained in an industry that has little room for error. To view the full testimonial, click here.

Spartan was instrumental in my career success and I am forever grateful for the experiences I had there. At 42 years old, the sky is the limit for my career. I have been with American Airlines for over 22 years now. In life, as well with your experience at Spartan, you will get out of it what you put in. To view Tim Tyron’s full testimonial, click here.
