If you want a school with International Recognition then only one school should come to mind... University of North Dakota. The training there is honestly 2nd to none. Air China does all of their primary training there, ARAMCO does all of their helicopter training there, and the Army does all of their helicopter training there through a ROTC program. The worlds biggest fleet of training aircraft. And here is the big kicker, at least for me. Once you get in state tuition (very VERY easy) tuition is only $3,545.78 a semester. ( http://und.edu/finance-operations/st...-account-services/tuition-fall.cfm
) Compare that with the tuition at the other schools listed and I think North Dakota seems very appealing.
True, it gets cold in North Dakota, but that's nothing that a little beer can't solve.
After having gone to school there for 4 years now I can give you a little Pro/Cons list;
Summer heat index can reach 115F
Classes don't cancel until wind chills hit -75F
If you like looking at hills, IT IS
FLAT (ie. Fargo = 75 miles south of Grand Forks... elevation change = 58 feet)
The best facilities and the best teachers
If you like to hunt or fish CHECK IT
Cost of living is CHEAP!!!!
NOT hard to find a job in North Dakota (100 flight instructors will be hired at the end of the summer)
People are the nicest people in the country
Women from the Twin Cities are GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!
