Hey I am kind of bored of my school now. I go to a school where the compitition between students is fierce and thats not really what I want to do. I was wondering if anyone knows any aviation boarding schools. The two things i would look for are COED and non MIlitary. If anyone could help me it would be much apreciated.

You complain about fierce competition, but that is exactly what the world is today. If you want to get in to business you will face that if you want a seat in a cockpit you will face that too! Maybe it is not so bad!

I see what you are saying Iainhol but at my school all the student body does is study now im into that too but most of these kids want to become exec. etc. and i would like to become a pilot so i dont know if it is the right place for me. Besides the classes are so small that i just would like a change of atmpsphere. I go to Greens Farms Academy go to the webpage www.Gfacademy.org and you will see that it is more of a prep school for other carrers.

I do understand if they are guiding you guys towards business careers, and that is not what you are interested. I do understand that people do much better in a field that they enjoy, and have goals in, I just wanted to put some light on the positive side of competition. I know at my school we had plenty of it, and it made me work much much harder!

Advice I have often heard, and I agree with, is DON'T focus on/major in aviation itself. It's perfectly fine to go to a aviation related school, just don't get a degree in aviation per se.

The reasoning is what happens if you lose your medical/get laid off/etc? You need to have a backup plan to a flying job, basically -- otherwise you might be screwed later on.

What you are asking for doesn't exisit as far as I know. I know a kid who was at Florida Air Academy in Melbourne, FL last year but not this year. It's pretty much a military school, though.
