    ERAU is a world-renowned university. Mainly for their many engineering programs (Newsweek ranks their undergrad aerospace engineering degree as #1 in the country), and obviously their flight training. Their CTI program is also excellent. All the classes are in the College of Aviation which is a fantastic facility with many new simulators for the students to get a real feel for controlling. The staff is very experienced and helpful. All are retired controllers from busy airports or retired milita... [Read More]

    Before you come here thinking it is the BEST school and will get you hired immediately, think about where you are going to be 4 years from now. This school is expensive. Don't treat it like that's not that big a deal, it will cost roughly $200,000 over four years, in all costs, to come to this school. If you have a GI Bill or scholarship, go right ahead. If not, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. You're paying for the name. And for ATC, the school really doesn't have much of an impact. I'm transferring to Commu... [Read More]

    When it comes to education, nothing beats the "Harvard of the Skies." Sounds like we're tooting our own horns here (and yes, we get to since we are all at least $100k in debt) but when it comes down to it, this really is the place to go if you want the best education.

    All instructors here are top-notch. Griffin in AT305 will teach you the first simulation lab, Daytona TRACON. This will give you a good idea of whether or not you WANT to do ATC for a living. Then comes P... [Read More]

    Let me start by saying that I think the school is way over priced if you are only going for ATC; you are basically paying for the name. The dorms are not the greastest, I moved off campus after my first semester. For the price of the dorms, you can get an apt nearby. The classes are good. I loved my instructors. If you love the beach, you will love it here. I'm not much of a beach person so I found myself driving to Orlando every weekend to go to universal studios or disney. ERAU also offers a l...

    I attended from August 2007-May 2010 and loved it! Yeah, it's expensive, but keeping up a large fleet of aircraft isn't exactly cheap, so you know where your tuition money is going. The fleet is well maintained and very impressive.

    Most professors are experienced in the field of aviation so you get top quality education from people who have "been there" before. Most ATC professors are former controllers, most Aeronautical Science professors are former pilots whether i... [Read More]

    I graduated Embry Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach Campus last May, 2009. Well I got to walk in the ceremony on May 5, 2009, but had to take 3 online classes to finish up my credits to confer my degree, which was in August. It is the best school for Aeronautical Science, Air Traffic Control, Aerospace Engineering, and all other aeronautical degrees in out nation. The boy to girl ratio sucks, but I mean come on, you don't go to Embry Riddle and pay a shit load a year to go here, if yo... [Read More]

    I graduated in Dec 08 with a BS in Aeronautical Science and a minor in ATM, yes I did all my flying on campus and I wanted to be a pilot but that was the only way my financial aid and scholarships would pay for things, most not all. If you want to fly on campus, simply put, dont. I worked as an instructor at air america and they actually teach you to fly, unlike reading an ops manual and doing that riddle teaches you. But as for the ATC courses the professors are experiences and very engaging, w... [Read More]

    ERAU is a great school and I loved the friends, professors and the experience that I gained from this school. The only thing is that coming from South Florida and moving to Daytona Beach isn't the best thing ever. I hate Daytona. It's boring and a lot of the people are sketch. Also, the school is VERY expensive and the parking was always a hassle for everyone.

    But overall, if you want a great education in aviation related stuff, ERAU is awesome.... [Read More]

    Where to start. I graduate in 5 days with a degree in Aeronautics. It's a Bachelors, and I've graduated "With Honors", which I find isn't that hard for Riddle. I have three minors, Air Traffic Management (ATC), Meteorology and Homeland Security.

    I started as a Pilot, majoring in Aeronautical Science. I soon found that the Flight School option on campus was a joke, I paid 8,000$ and hadn't ever set foot in a real airplane. I quit that, went to fly off campus, changed my... [Read More]

    I attended both the main campus in Daytona Beach, FL and also the Worldwide campus in Orlando, FL. From my experiences, I find the professors to be some of the best in the industry. The costs are quite high though which is why I opted for the Worldwide campus. I really enjoyed my time in Daytona Beach, there's so much to do you can never go bored.

    The campus is situated next to the airport and the speedway so you're right in the heart of the action! I did not stay in the dorms ... [Read More]

    In terms of curriculum based on the aviation industry you won't find a better school. Everyone you know will be somehow linked to a future in aviation, you're entire life will pretty much be about aviation related matters. Primary courses, especially the Air Traffic Management courses are instructed by incredibly knowledgeable and experienced staff. Simulation courses, which take up a majority of the air traffic cirriculum, give students a hands on approach and understanding to what the air traf... [Read More]

    The school is great for what it teaches. The biggest downfall is the price it is very expensive to come to this school. One of my professors put it " if you wanna play you got to pay." Other than that it is a great school. Everything you learn revolves around aviation. Its also in Daytona Beach and the weather is great.

    I attended Embry-Riddle's Worldwide Campus (which is their online program) from December of 2004 until August of 2007. I graduated with a degree in Professional Aeronautics with minors in Aviation Safety and Management. Embry-Riddle uses "Blackboard" as the way to access everything online that pertains to the school. It is a unique program for schools which turned out to be very beneficial once you get the hang of it. You can even have virtual classes online in which you interact with ... [Read More]
