John Harris | A & P Graduate

My experience at Spartan opened the door to aviation. I was the first in my family to pursue an aviation career.My a&p license provided a much needed job to support my family.John Harris review

I very much enjoyed the instructors and fellow students.The atmosphere was just the right balance of academics and practical learning . The staff and faculty were always supportive and encouraging when it was needed.

After graduating from the a&p program I got a job in corporate aviation.I was soon promoted to a management job.While working full time I attended and graduated from Mountain View College in one of the first classes in Pilot Technology. My first flying job was on a new Canadair business jet.I was later promoted to check airman and Vice President of flight operations for Jet East charter corporation in Dallas . After eight years at Jet East Inc I was hired at Southwest Airlines and flew for almost twenty one years and retired as Captain December 2013. I owe a great deal of my success to my original training at Spartan.
