Not exactly the Northeast US, but Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. It's about 60 miles from Indianapolis, so you can get a quick non-stop on ATA to most major markets in the country, and I think CUN, for spring break .

What are Your Career Goals? Community College of Beaver County, located in Monaca Pa. ( 45minutes North of Pittsburgh) I went through thier Avaition Sciences program back in 1998-99 for Air Traffic Control. They also have a good pilot program as well. The courses, instructors and Class Materials ( mock up airports, radar room) aided very much in preparing someone for a career as a pilot or a Controller. The school is located right next the The Beaver County Airport ( KBVI). Part of the Course work is to work in the control tower in the last semester. Don't let the fact that it is a community college fool you. This was a very methodical and complete program. A lot of the people that attended the school were from out of state and lived in the apartments near by ( whickh is what I did). ATCboy73 also attened Beaver for Air Traffic, if you want to know more go to www.ccbc.edu and navigate to areas of study and then Avaition sciences. Good Luck
