    This rating is carried over from the previous rating system.

    StuckMic previously had a method of rating the AT-CTI Schools on 4 pieces of criteria which included:

    Teaching Staff
    Nearby Activities

    To transfer over the previous ratings to the new system, which allows the user to rate the school based on a 5 star rating system used by hotels, restaurants and other large establishments, we first added up the ratings for each provider under the old system and then divided that by 4. (This is basic math averaging.) We then took that number and rounded it to the nearest .5 and that became the single digit number we used to start the new rating system.

    The archived reviews display the previous ratings as well as the average rating based on the previous entries. The archived reviews are very relevant to the AT-CTI Schools listed and were the primary source of rating for almost 5 years.

    The program at OU has been very beneficial. Not only do we have actually simulators (including Tower Cab and En-Route/TRACON), we visit nearby airports within the region and interact with controllers. In addition, our instructors are actually certified instructors at the Academy and provide us an in-depth experience and overview in what the Academy expects and teaches students. Our program director has created the program in a way that could be considered more challenging than the Academy so that when we graduate from OU, we will be fully prepared for the Academy.

    All in all, this program is fantastic and costs considerably less than other four year schools. Oh, and you're not required to get your pilots license, but have that option if you'd like.
