Fall Photo Finale --- Finally!
We had numerous photo submissions for our Fall Photo Contest and it was difficult to choose a winner with so many great photos. So, we decided to create two categories: "Students" and "Public".
This Fall's winner for the "Public category" goes to Thad Torix and his unique photo of the pilot helmet with helicopter reflection in the visor. Great photo Thad! Even Vertical Magazine chimed in on this one!!
Runner up in the "Public category" submitted by Matt Ottosen

The "Student category" winner goes to JJ Scoble of the Yavapai College-Guidance Aviation Professional Pilot Program. Way to go JJ! Nice pose.

New Website and Brochure
Our new website and brochure are products of our growth and dedication to enhancing the student experience.
We encourage all of you to utilize the Forums section of the new website to post inquiries and needs as they relate to housing, jobs and training. As these areas of the Forum begin to be populated with requests, useful information will follow as we build resources for our student body.
Soon, our newest section of the website, "My GA", will be operational. This section is dedicated to
students and faculty and will include direct log-in to "My FBO", private-students only forum, and log-in access to My Blackboard, complete with instructional, online videos accessible 24/7.
