Overall I felt that it was a major let down. The biggest selling point they use to get you in the door is that the classes are 80% shop time when, in reality, it's almost entirely class room time and even then they arent so much teaching you as giving you a paper and telling you to go google the answers. The testing is a joke and most of the teachers just present the finals as power point slideshows in "review" format, meaning you can copy the answers and it is usually word for word what is on the final exams.

Most of the instructors I have had were wonderful, they take the time to focus on the students that need the most help while also encouraging other students to progress towards their Airframe and Power Plants license.
this school is only currently online due to COVID-19 and even then each class has its own schedule for when the students come in for the hands-on learning portion of the school. At first, the online schedule was interesting but has since gotten better as we progress through this pandemic.
