Spartan Tulsa operates three campuses with over 247,000 square feet of training facilities, classrooms and administrative space located on two Tulsa area airports.
The Main Campus located at 8820 E. Pine Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma, contains Spartan’s core electronics program where aviation electronics students obtain component-level troubleshooting skills through a 50% hands-on curriculum working with industry-current equipment and training aids. The campus also houses the general education classes needed to complete a Spartan Associate degree program and the upper-level courses needed for those students desiring to complete a Bachelor of Science degree. Spartan’s Main Campus includes aviation electronics labs including the training lab for the building and programming instruction on unmanned aerial vehicles for aviation electronics students; a welding shop for aviation maintenance students; a library; a book and equipment store; and offices for student services, admissions, financial aid, student records, student accounts, and administration.
The North Campus is located adjacent to the Tulsa International Airport at 7304 East Apache Street, Tulsa, OK 74115. The campus contains specialty classrooms, training labs and industry-current equipment for aviation maintenance and nondestructive testing. The North Campus includes 24 fixed wing and two rotary aircraft; 21 turbine jet engines; 26 reciprocating aircraft engines; an aviation electronics communication shop; aviation electronics radar shop; a Boeing 727 and a Boeing 727-100 training cockpit; and nondestructive testing equipment including magnetic particle, liquid dye penetrant, ultrasound, eddy current, and radiography. The North Campus contains a cafeteria and Graduate Career Services where on-campus interviewing and recruiting takes place.
Spartan’s Flight Campus is located approximately 20 miles southwest of the Main Campus and located at 123 Cessna Drive in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the Richard L. Jones airport which is a tower-controlled airport including dual runways, crosswind and instrument landing approach capabilities. The Spartan Flight Campus maintains a fleet of approximately 43 aircraft including Cessna 152s, 172s, Piper Arrows, Piper Seminoles, a Frasca flight simulator and a full motion Redbird Advance Aviation Training Device.
The campus has eight classrooms for ground school instruction, flight dispatch, a book and equipment store, a flight library, and financial aid, student records and graduate career services offices. The campus also hosts a LaserGrade testing center allowing students computer testing for same-day results for their Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) written examinations.
Real-time weather information system is provided in flight operations. Interactive media materials, charts, cutaway models, smart boards, display boards, video and mock-ups support classroom instruction. There is approximately 40,000 square feet of classroom, hangar and administrative space. All flight instruction is performed with one instructor to one student. Ground school classes operate with an average of 20 to 1 student-to-instructor ratios.

Technical Training Facilities
Spartan operates three campuses with more than 247,000 square feet of training facilities, classrooms and administrative space located on two Tulsa area airports. Our technical training facilities have wall charts, cutaway units, audio-visual equipment, smart boards, miniature models, display boards and mock-ups are provided for demonstration of principles and procedures.
The Aviation Maintenance Training Department has a Boeing 727 cockpit section, an Aero Commander, a C-303 Crusader, six Cessna C-150s, one helicopter, a Sabreliner for static training, and thirteen operational aircraft. Our aircraft mechanic training includes a diploma program that can be completed in 15 months and an Associate of Applied Science degree that can be achieved in as little as 18 months. Spartan now offers a hybrid program where the first portion of the program is offered online and only requires the student to spend 7 months in Tulsa for the on-ground hands-on portion of the training.
