Aviation Institute - Chesapeake Student Reviews

Tuition & Financial Aid: The cost to attend this school is expensive and often times we as students depend on the refunds from financial aid to assist with food, transportation, and school demands. Almost never do you get to receive and refunds cause of tuition, lab fees, housing, books, etc. Its really a struggle to just make it to class and survive. This is my reason for appling for this scholarship for assistance.

Overall Experience: Well after moving here i had to adapt to the schools program. The school itself offers alot in a very short time, but some of the students attending should think about their career field. The moral at times can be low due to the type of students enrolled in the programs, but overall knowing why you are there is worth the struggle of acheiving a successful career.

Career Services: The absolute best part of AIM is career services. The chances of getting a job upon graduation are very great. The job board is constantly updated. Some of the posted jobs are not aviation related, but they offer jobs using the skills we have learned. The career guy offers career cafe about twice a month to give interview, career search, resume, and other tips to help with the job placement process. I am excited to graduate and am confident that I will be able to put my degree and certificate to good use.

Campus Resources: Non-Traditional Experience – As a trade school, we do not have any sports teams or clubs to speak of. There are no traditional dorms, no meal plans, and everything is located in one building. However, we are unique in that we a small student body which allows everyone to get to know each other. We also have a WWI aircraft that is being built from the ground up. How many schools can say that they built something awesome and then will get to watch it fly? There are also various activites offered by student housing such as movie nights, basketball games, and trips to amusement parks. We have an awesome career guy that will do everything he can to find us jobs upon graduation. Did I mention that we get to work around airplanes and various components day in and day out? AIM also offers day and night classes. This school is certainly different from the university experience, but I like it a lot better. I know I'm biased, but really, we get to get out of the classroom and get practicl experience.
