What about only listing the schools that are true aviation schools. Most of the list could hardly be called Aviation Colleges. The ones where the aviation program is treated like every other program. Once you pay your tuition you train and graduate with your licences without having to spend an additional $30k for flight training to some piggy back flying club looking for the opportunity to hold some poor student ransom.

CLguy, that was my origional thought, however i didn't want to exclude some people leaving them feel that their college program was less than others. I figure just let the voters decide which is best.

I hear ya. This one will probably end up as more of a poll of how many AvCanada-ers went where. Interesting nonetheless.

Perhaps posting links to the websites for each program might help those that aren't familiar with them learn a little something and maybe they could pass a little judgment that way.

This topic won't allow any more voting. All the others still seem to be open.

I spent one month at Seneca before giving them the boot. I didn't see how vocabulary tests based on mediocre literature were conducive to an education in aviation, not to mention they misappropriated funds from my account.
I do enjoy seeing the incompetent staff striking in the cold every day that I drive to work at Buttonville. They should all just quit.
Anyways, keep up the studying for your vocab tests Clothesliner, I think you're moving on to multi-syllable words next week.

I wonder who gave who the boot here. Hmmmm, after a month? You couldn't even make it to the Christmas graduation ceremony?
