Q. How do you feel LeTourneau University is preparing you (for your aviation career)?

“With my flight training, LeTourneau is preparing me for a career in missionary aviation.  I am getting to learn all the technical aspects of aviation while getting a quality Christian education.”

Q. What advice do you have for students in the aeronautical science program?

“If you don't enjoy flying, this is not the major for you.  The key to success in the aeronautical science program is to love what you do, even if it means getting up at 7 AM for an early morning lab or flight block.  I have truly enjoyed the experiences I have had at LeTourneau in the aeronautical science program.”

Q. What are some special memories of your time here at LeTourneau University?

“I just love flying.  My first solo flight is one of my favorite memories that I have here.  I also really enjoy working with my classmates in the various labs, especially when we get to take things apart.  When you put all this together with the incredible Biblical foundation that LeTourneau is built on, there are amazing opportunities that cannot be found elsewhere.”
