Aviation academy at Newcastle (NCL/EGNT), although I think you may mean the USA, which you probably should have said...

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  Big grin.

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

You could try Dowling College School of Aviation at Brookhaven-Calaboro Airport (KHWV) in Shirley, NY (further east from Farmingdale). Incidentally, that's where I graduated from.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

i would not think about the college of aeronautics, if it still goes by that name. i currently go there and have had nothing but problems with them since day 1.

The school I teach at is a diamond in the rough...give it a try. We have a direct articulation with Embry-Riddle and Dowling where all credits will transfer.

I would highly recommend listening to JET1977. That's where I'll be going, ccbc. Alot of the guys I know that ATC at PHL recommend it and have already or are going to be sending their kids there.

I found a lot of school information through that directory of aviation schools. They also have a "search by state" functionality: http://www.technician-programs.com/marine-auto-aviation.html

Good luck in your search
