I attended F.I.T.'s Aeronautical program from 1984-1988. It has the best Aeronautical program for flying in the country. I am currently an Airline Pilot and attribute my success to the great instructors and the overall experience I gained while attending. The positive attributes of this school are the warmer climate which was great for aviation. A smaller campus than a major university, so class sizes were more one on one. That's something you can't get at a huge school. Florida Institute of Technology, (Florida Tech) is also a very diversified school with many different curriculum's.
Aviation, Aerospace, Engineering, Marine Biology, and Management and more. There is something for everyone. I would encourage you to apply. If I had it to do over, it would again be my choice.
