Hi! My name is Monico Chavez and I’m an Aviation Flight Management major. I’m also working on minors in Business and in Criminal/Social Justice. With these degrees, I have the opportunity to become a professional pilot (i.e. commercial, cargo, corporate, etc.) but I also have my minors to fall back on. Due to the heavy emphasis on management in my major, my business minor is very easy to get!
I chose Lewis because of the quality of their flight program. After looking at aviation schools all over the Midwest, it became clear that Lewis had the best program. Lewis is very respected in the aviation community and has a fleet of great aircraft that are very well maintained. The flight instructors are extremely knowledgeable and thorough in their training. I also chose Lewis because of their small class sizes, beautiful campus, religious foundations, and proximity to my home. The professors are extremely helpful and very effective as teachers. Since most of my aviation professors used to work in the aviation field, it is really great to get an insider’s view on what it’s really like to have a job in aviation.
