I've absolutely loved my experience in the UNO Aviation program so far. In barely a year I've already accomplished things that have been incredibly rewarding, such as being a member of my school's NIFA flight team, finishing my Instrument rating (A very difficult add-on to a private pilot's license), and already having a pilot interview set up with an airline company I hope to work for. One of my favorite things about my program is that I am required to flight train for pilot's licenses all the way through the flight instructor license, in order to graduate with a bachelor of science in professional flight. Flying is a huge passion of mine, and finding a degree program that allows me to do something I love while putting it toward a degree and career is a wonderful experience. Something unique about the UNO Aviation Institute is its small size. The department's small student body and extremely helpful faculty members give it an atmosphere similar to a small town, where everybody knows everybody and is willing to help each other out. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't choose any other program. I've made so many amazing connections already, not only with fellow students but also with aviation professionals who work in several companies and fields that I myself am aiming to achieve. The Aviation Institute seems like it really was meant for me, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
