 "Thanks so much for your help in helping me graduate. I have seen many different flight schools and there is no doubt that Sinclair has one of the best. I have learned 100 times the knowledge that I thought I would have received from a two-year program and am very grateful. Again THANKS!!!

What are the objectives of the Aviation Technology program?
The Aviation Technology program builds essential practical knowledge in the areas of professional pilot, aviation maintenance, airway science, flight attendant, and flight dispatcher careers. 
What are the prospects for those interested in aviation?

The demand for major airline pilots is now greater than pre 9-11 levels, and the demand for general aviation are at an all-time high.

The use of interstate commerce has increased the demand for cargo pilots for companies like UPS, Federal Express, ABX Air, and the United States Postal Service. A shift in business travel from the major airlines to executive-size aircraft has created a new increase in the number of pilot jobs available. This change in airline passenger and cargo traffic, along with an expected wave of retirements, will provide many job opportunities for new pilots and for flight instructors at all levels of the aviation industry.
