Certified Flight Instructor Stephon Sanders describes his journey with Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology. He started off as a student and within a few years became a certified flight instructor.
Hi, my name is Stephon Sanders. I’m 27 years old. I'm from Dallas, TX and I moved and started at Spartan in January of 2018.

I started off as a student. I did the program for about a year and a half. I then I switched over and I became an employee – a certified flight instructor for Spartan in February of 2020. And in my experience, you know, Spartan is a really good community – just as a whole – for pilots. Because I've been to different flight schools and it's pretty hard to manage a flight school, because there's a lot that goes into it.

In my opinion, Spartan does pretty well of managing a flight school in terms of its fleet, of a student body, and it's, just its employees because, you know, becoming a pilot it's not easy. But the thing about Spartan is that it's got a great sense of community because they got a bunch of peers and employees, so you don't feel like you're doing it alone. We're all doing in this together – all going together as a community. We're all bouncing ideas off of each other just learning and going together. And that's what I’ve got from my experience with Spartan.

And so, I would recommend it to anybody who's thinking about going to a particular flight school. I recommend looking into Spartan. And you know, during my experience… I've gotten my all my ratings – from private all the way to CFII here at Spartan too. And so, they do really well kind of keeping you on track, keeping everything logged for you, and pretty much just helping you get set up for whatever you want to do with becoming a pilot. Whether it's you know, career-wise, you're trying to go to the commercial level or if you just want to do general aviation and just have your own plane and fly around.

I feel like Spartan is the place to kind of get that grand environment to get all those different elements in regard to becoming a pilot.
