To be honest I can't give it even 1 star. What a joke this place is !!!!!! To whomever reads this seriously consider taking an alternate mode of transportation very soon instead of flying. I say this because if the airline industry depends on the safety of the expertise level of the graduates I saw in a years time and the level of complete incompetence of the soon to be graduating students this industry is in SERIOUS trouble. There are 2 campuses currently "teaching " (and I use this term VERY loosely) students to become Aircraft Maintenance Technicians one of which I was an Instructor in Concord, Ma, the other in the Tampa Bay, Florida area. Both campuses appear to be (on paper) the best at what they do but in reality they are only there to make money. The instructors are almost powerless in the process of determining who can do this job and who is wasting their time. I've been in this business 33years and I can tell if someone belongs here but I was told specifically by upper management that it wasn't up to us as instructors to decide if the students should be there or not. We we constantly reminded that this school was a business and we are here to make money. I was once told by my Director of Education that if our attendance fell below 150 students we would not be making any money for the company. Putting it in simple terms every couple of months or so it's "draw time " which means drawing money from the students either by way of installments coming from student loans, grants, or VA to show you a few examples. Well if a student doesn't meet certain criteria the school can't "draw " from that student thus NAA doesn't get paid. So what do you think happens next.....? Well I'm not going to tell you everything but let's just say that student or most of the time students somehow pass the subject they failed or someone miraculously the number of classroom hours they missed somehow is no longer a problem. Some loopholes somewhere. I got to hand it to Joe Moore he always seems to find the "loopholes " . Maybe he should be selling cars as a second job just like he sells visions of grandeur to those students AND employees.

Iv had better customer service from Mcdonald, School has no standards. I called three times to get ahold of someone for a tool voucher, wrote emails and left voice mails not a reply or call back. In the the 10 months I was there I have seen 22 instructors leave. Very shady. Spend your money elsewhere. Also for a 14 month program they charge veterans GI Bill 19 months. Didn’t tell a lot of us that at the beginning.

If you really want your A&P it is a helpful school if you can get past the bullshit. Get your prepware and USE it! Some instructors actually care and will help you to no end, other hate their job and will only push you through. It is a general knowledge school. You will learn the basics of aircrafts. If you expect to walk out knowing everything about every single aircraft ever produced you will be disappointed. No place will do that. If you have a complaint about issues going on in the school dont waste your breath. They dont care and you will be ignored.

Since all the other reviews here don't do this "Academy" Justice, I figured id use some of my time to save a lot of yours.Pros - Some teachers actually care about you and will stand up to the terrible management. - Easy to get in to this school since the test is for middle school level math. - If you by some miracle get through the course you will learn how to use prep-ware which is a great tool for taking the tests for you license.Cons Where to begin.... - Lack of tools and tools quality that is present if terrible. - More than half the teachers there hate their jobs and cant stand the management leaving you with grumpy old men (possibly a woman or two) who "teach" aka read from a packet. - The lectures are more thank death by power point. They are terribly made packets that "fill in the blanks" these blanks are later the answers to a terribly made multiple choice test. (I never got below a 80% on any of the 100+ "tests" we took) - Not only is the curriculum bad but its has very little to do with the actual test for your license. ITS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU USE PREP-WARE IF YOU'D LIKE TO HAVE A CHANCE AT PASSING. Conveniently they sell all the prep-ware for 15$ a book (three books, one for each test) - Labs are a disaster and equipment is terrible. I wont even get into the safety aspect of this place, lets just say if the got audited they would need a miracle to pass. - The planes and engines that this place does have are rickety at best and I was not able to do two of the projects that are "required" to graduate. - The one plane that they do have that works they don't let any work get done to it at all. Its basically there to attract new student and suck them into the money grab that is National Aviation Academy. - Lets talk money... You pay (36,000 at the time) a hefty sum of money just to get into this school which has a strict schedule of Mon- Fri 8 hours days. If you miss any time at all you have to make up the hours after school making your days longer (this is understandable because you need 1600 hours for the license). For each hour you have to pay 15$, meaning a day of missed school is about 100$ (if unexcused) where does this money go? not to the teacher that stays late (they complain about this at least once a day) instead it goes right to the big mans pocket. to take your test for license all of this must be paid up and all hours have to be made up. if its snowing and they don't cancel school you have to make it there or you will have to make the time up and pay. like I said this place is just a money grab. -The owner of this establishment came to visit one time while I attended this school. He interviewed me and ask why I had so many hours to make up. I told him that I lived an hour away and that I also have to work because I'm not a teen that live at home. He then proceeded to make fun of the fact that I needed to make so much time up and that I probably Owed him a lot of money.I could go on forever about terrible things at this school. I am a veteran of the United States Air Force and used my GI bill for this school thinking it would be a great move. Unfortunately for those using a GI Bill you are stuck at this school to the end and your options are just leave and pay back your GI Bill and loos your money to the school or stick it out and teach yourself through the books. I did take a few things out of this school and I can say that I did make a great group of friends while here.
