Studied aviation flight science for 4 1/2 years at WMU. All of my flight training was recieved at WMU which was well taught from knowledgable CFIs(although expensive rental rates and employers could care less about where you trained). Flight time and type ratings are your resume if you want to be a career pilot. Still to this day when I get checked out at new FBOs they honor the level of professionalism in my flying which is a direct result of WMU COA. The COA professors all have impressive resumes along with a passion for aviation, really a pleasure to learn and work with. I currently work at American eagle airlines as a ground instructor and got lucky in getting this position. I no longer aspire to be a career pilot which I went to wmu in hopes of becoming. The ATP rule has really raised the legal bar to get employed as a pilot. Future WMU COA students, professors will lead you to believe you are the next gen 777 captains, airline CEOs, or chief pilots of multimillion dollar corporate aviation facilities but you must keep in mind, college is an EDUCATION not a gaurentee. It's what you do with your education and continued hard work after college that will make you the 777 captains and airline CEOs.
