Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology has been providing top notch aviation training in Tulsa, Oklahoma since 1928. From the very beginning Spartan provided current and innovative training programs to keep our graduates relevant in the ever changing job market.

Spartan’s Flight Campus is located at the Richard L Jones Airport (RVS) 123 West Cessna Drive, Tulsa OK 74132.  The RL Jones airport is tower-controlled with dual runways.

The campus features a fleet of approximately 40 single and multi-engine airplanes used in our training programs as well as a full-motion Redbird simulator. Flight students can utilize the student resource center and bookstore as well as relax in the Eagle’s Nest activity center. This campus location is also where we conduct some private and international contract training as well as our training services for the United States Air Force.

Typical graduates of our flight program continue on to take the Bachelor of Science in Aviation Technology Management program while working as a Certified Flight Instructor.  As a result, once completing the bachelor’s program, our flight graduates have obtained over 1200 flight hours and are qualified to obtain their Airline Transport Pilot’s licence with the FAA.
