Monday thru Friday 7am to 3pm in Clearwater. So the drive at 3pm to go back to Tampa is really the worst part.

If you don’t dedicate you energy or life to something you can’t expect to get anything in return. This school breaks down General,Powerplant, and Airframe down so that ”everyone” can understand it.

Good combination of classrooms and hands on learning. Teachers were very helpful with instructing the classroom and one on one with individual students.
