    PROS
    It is cheap, because it is Community College. That also means it is only a 2 year program, so you finish sooner. But they should call it:

    "Mt. SAC: You Get What You Pay For"

    CONS
    1. If you want to be an ATC, do not go here. At faa.gov, you'll notice that most CTI schools offer degrees in "Air Traffic Control," but Mt. Sac's degree is "Aviation Science." Virtually every class is de... [Read More]

    Background:
    I attended Vaughn from June 2011-May 2012 and still have to complete the one week capstone course there in July to be recommended to the FAA. I joined up for an A.A.S. in Airport Management non-business under the fast track program. I am close to getting a bachelor degree in Intelligence Studies since I am in the Air Force and was looking for a career building degree before I decided to get out. It's important that I say I attended Vaughn as a distance student only. I have heard... [Read More]

    I must first explain that I am not a native to Colorado, I have only lived in Denver for 3 years. I could not give you the ins and outs of everything around town, but I have been going to school downtown for 2 years now. 1 of which has been spent at "Metro". Downtown college life is one of the better experiences in the world. Even from my standpoint (not a hardcore party animal), I have found this city to be culturally alive. It is a fantastic city, full of fantastic sites. Living... [Read More]

    I am a CTI student at the University of North Dakota.

    When I toured the school, I loved the campus especially the aviation department buildings. I was given the opportunity to try out the ATC simulators on my tour, which is why I ultimately decided to attend UND. Another benefit to attending UND is the lower tuition fees than schools like Embry Riddle. UND is the #1 ranked CTI school with the best faculty I could have ever hoped to learn from.

    There isn't a large selection of activities/ev... [Read More]

    I attended Vaughn from Fall 2010 until Spring 2012. I went for an AAS in Airport Management along with CTI. I commuted, so I can't speak for the dorms. If you are commuting, add an extra 10 minutes to whatever travel time you get from a website because the construction on the Grand Central Parkway right near LaGuardia Airport is always a nightmare. They've been redoing that part of the road for at least 5 years now.

    That said, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Vaughn. I met a lot ... [Read More]

    Ill make this a short review since some of the others hit it right on the head. Prices were a little higher than what was previously stated. Around $10,000 a semester just in tuition. I was in the fast track program and took all the courses online. The courses themselves are not terribly hard, but if you want to have a good understanding, which you should for the ATC courses, it requires you to put in some study time and review material. Some of the professors (non-ATC classes) were not always a... [Read More]

    TCC is an amazing CTI school. The area is pretty cool, the classes are small and personal, and the curriculum is top of the line. Ben and Gary (instructors) give out both their office and their personal cell phone numbers to everyone in the class. I text the all the time with questions. They're also very flexible and instructive. The simulators are top of the line, supposedly the same set up as the FAA academy, and much better than the ones we had for the Army. The classes become pretty tight kn... [Read More]

    One the best CTI programs.

    Pros: The program has a very good reputation with many FAA managers. The program coordinator provides a lot of info and important updates about the hiring process. I graduated from the terminal side and the tower can see a good deal of teachable traffic during better weather and busier times. They have retired FAA controllers as some of the tower supervisors and they provide excellent instruction and advice. The radar lab is a STARS based system which ... [Read More]

    I have nothing but good things to say about the actual course work at CCBC. It is a 2 year program that you can complete in 4 straight semesters which takes about 18 months total. The school pretty much requires you to go 4 straight semesters (Fall, Spring, Summer, Fall).

    The 1st and 2nd semesters are all your general classes, electives and introductory aviation courses. These courses are on par with any other CTI school in the country. By the time you get to your 3rd and 4th sem... [Read More]

    I have attended Eastern New Mexico Roswell for the past year and have now completed the program. I was able to finish the program in only two semesters due to previously earned credits at another university. I would highly recommend this program due to it's very low cost and the ability to complete the program in a short amount of time. There is no other CTI school in the nation where you can complete the program in two semesters if most of your prerequisites are completed. Granted I did take 23... [Read More]

    I am a 2010' Graduate that attended from 2006-2010. Hampton University itself is a rich experience as it is a Historically Black College. The degrees offered at Hmapton are all 4 year bachelors.

    I was lucky when I decided that I wanted to be an air traffic controller. After looking over colleges I had my choices down to UND and Middle Tennessee State University. Since MTSU was in my backyard, I choose it with little thought of UND.

    MTSU is a great school with a great tradition in its aerospace department. From ATC to aerospace admin, there are plenty of nationally recognized programs this department has to offer. MTSU is getting brand new, state of the art ATC simulato... [Read More]

I finished the CTI program in two semesters for a total of 28 credits. I'll try to give both the pros and the cons of the program based on my experience.

    The staff consists of people who have VERY good knowledge in what they teach and give you so much information to grow from. These are all people who know what's going on.

    Hey all!

    Broward college is a great place to study air traffic control. From both of the 315 degree view simulators, to the six RADAR scopes, and two new ICE simulators this school is by far giving you the most bang for your buck. One of the best parts is the school uses airspace that is currently being used in the field! Like Miami Approach/Departure (G Scope), Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, and Miami Center's R20 and R21 airspace.

    Hi Ladies and Gentleman,
    I am a current student in the Metropolitan State College of Denver (MSCD) C.T.I. Air Traffic Control Program. I will post the official program requirements here in a few seconds, but first, here are the basics. The degree at MSCD is a four year bachelor degree, and also, a basic requirement is a minor in a minor of your choice. The school does have somewhere around five air traffic simulators, enough to get the job done. The ATC instruction staff is excell... [Read More]

    This course offers just as much of a 5 star education as that of it's 4 year competitors at 30% of the cost. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to help you out anyway they can and answer any questions you have. Most are either active or retired controllers/airline pilots/flight instructors and have a thorough understanding of how to prepare the students for Oklahoma and beyond. The only thing that they ask of you is to work your ass off. If you don't, you are only hurting yourself as the tea... [Read More]

    The program $$$ wise is one of the cheapest you will find which is a huge up side.

    I am in my second semester in the ATC program at Aims, and I love it! The instructors are all retired controllers who truly loved their job, and love passing their knowledge on to the next generation. The curriculum was very well designed to prepare you. My only complaint is how many pilot courses there are because I cannot figure out why such extensive knowledge of piloting is necessary. The lab fees are very high, but it being a community college, the tuition is still affordable. While there i... [Read More]

    I'm currently enrolled and attending Hampton University. It's actually been a frustrating experience since the beginning. I just started and at the point where I think I may just resign and try another school. First of all, this school is EXTREMELY expensive (30k for a two year degree), and actually is not worth the price compared to the experience dealing with staff and what not.

    I attended this school. Bad thing about the school, several of the classes are located at different locations. The radar classes are held at Miami Dade College in Homestead, FL (lots of traffic - at least 1 hr away). Some other classes like the Intro to Weather is located at the North campus - across town. You have to drive to other locations quite often. You have to ask lots of questions to find out what the procedures are to become at Air Traffic Controller. The school counselor would tell me ...
