Our Students Say…

Student working on airplane
“This career has allowed me to reach so many goals I never thought possible! I encourage anyone who is trying to decide on a career in the mechanical field to pick aviation! I always find it funny when people ask me what I do and I get to tell them I am an aircraft mechanic. They don’t expect that! It is definitely a specialty field and a great one to join. I cannot say it enough. I would never change the decision I made to join the SAU Tech Aviation Maintenance program!” Daniel Castleberry

” I chose SAU Tech over going all the way to Florida to train in aviation maintenance. It was a good choice for me. My instructors at SAU Tech were great and today I am working at the airport in Little Rock!”Dinzell Thomas
