LeTourneau University’s School of Aviation and Aeronautical Science was named to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association 2014 Flight Training Excellence Honor Roll.  LETU ranked among the top 62 flight schools out of a total 1,447 evaluated nationwide, based on an online AOPA poll of more than 3,600 flight students. The poll was conducted from June through August.
“We work hard to provide a high quality of aviation education to our students, so we are honored that AOPA would include LETU on their Honor Roll,” said LETU dean of the School of Aviation and Aeronautical Science Fred Ritchey.
AOPA is the largest general aviation advocacy association in the world with hundreds of thousands of members. AOPA supports safety, education, training, leadership and technical competence to ensure the freedom and general health of General Aviation.
These AOPA created the awards to recognize those schools and instructors who exemplify the best flight training available and honor those who instill in their students a lifelong passion for aviation and safety.
