Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology says

Spartan has been training pilots and aviation technicians since 1928. With more than 90,000 graduates, Spartan is an ACCSC accredited flight and aviation school in Tulsa, Oklahoma, offering diploma programs and Associate of Applied Science and bachelor's degrees. Many people say that a career in aviation is not just a job, but also a passion. Those that embark on this career path will find they are part of a big family of aviation enthusiasts.

This Tulsa, Oklahoma, flight school has a long-standing history of providing industry-current training for those pursuing a career as a pilot or aircraft mechanic. The United States Air Force recently chose Spartan as its flight school partner for the Coalition Air Force. In addition, the Professional Pilot and Aviation Maintenance Technology programs at Spartan are approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Founded by William G. Skelly, Spartan is the only flight and pilot school in the nation that was also an aircraft manufacturer. In fact, one of the first side-by-side flying trainers was invented at Spartan. This legacy of manufacturing is of great benefit to the school's current pilot and aviation students, as Spartan has become one of the best known aviation schools in the country.

Located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, our facilities span more than 247,000 square feet of physical space located at two local airports and house more than 60 aircraft for pilot and aviation technician training. Several training devices, such as radar equipment, ultrasonic testers and much more, are available for a truly hands-on learning experience.
