Going to college has become a standard part of entering the job market in any industry, and aviation is no exception. Nowadays, it is quite advantageous to have a degree when applying to airlines after earning your Air Transport Pilot, or ATP.
US Aviation Academy has kept up with this trend by partnering with Tarrant County College, also known as TCC. Jointly, TCC and US Aviation offer fixed-wing at the largest aviation education facility in Texas.
