"My background prior to attending NAA, I was a Helicopter Mechanic with the United States Marine Corp. My passion for aviation led to my career change as an A&P Mechanic. It was a gamble that has most certainly paid off and the opportunities that NAA provided for me has made my new career a success. You will learn that the instructors will preach to you the following philosophy throughout school and I can tell you, it is most certainly true. That philosophy is good attendance, a desire to learn and above all, a positive "Can Do" attitude, at the end of your 14 months, the opportunities for employment will be outstanding."

- Thomas Renn, NAA Alum
"I chose to go to NAA over two other accredited schools around the country. I made the choice originally because of the short duration of the program, however along the way the professionalism and superior knowledge of the instructors became more and more evident and reaffirmed my choice of schools. Two days before graduation I had already interviewed with four potential employers and had three more lined up. I received job offers ranging from regional airlines to government contractors and corporate jet companies."
