I am currently enrolled in a BOCES aviation program. BOCES stands for Board Of Cooperational Educational Services and they work with public school districts in certain states. What I do is have a half day of high school every day and go to a nearby airport to train for my PPL. (It costs me nothing but my school district $15,000)

I'm currently halfway towards a B.S. in Professional Aeronautics at Embry-Riddle (via Air Force distance learning center). Although my intentions are not to become a commercially licensed pilot, I am planning to work in the aerospace industry after I leave the service, preferably with a defense contractor, such as Lockheed Martin.
Team Stealth...when it absolutely, positively HAS to be taken out overnight!

Quoting Mhodgson (Reply 14): I'm starting the Oxford Aviation 'Airline Preparation Course' in September, which will lead me to an fATPL with multi-jet simulator experience in a full motion 737-400 sim.
Hmmm, despite being half the world away and I bet you can feel the jealous energy I'm emanating right now...
Congratulations on getting in, if I had my choice of any flight school to do my training at it'd be Oxford. Maybe you'll be able to beat the record belonging to the Oxford graduate who got BA A320 captaincy when he was 25... if not I'm sure you'll have fun anyway. Good luck mate.

Nothign yet, but looking at Airline/Airport management courses. So far visited the University of North Dakota, the University of Western Ontario and visiting the University of New Brunswick this Friday..
UWO is in the lead so far..
Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.
