I always heard that F.I.T. was a good school. I lived down the street, in Vero. Nice looking airplanes, extremely nice flightline at the Melbourne airport, nice facilities, good training, of course, the beach nearby, chance to watch Space Shuttle launches live, good reputation. Something like ERAU without its connotations. I'd investigate.
My comments are based on living near there ten years ago and what I've picked up from the board. Has something changed?
I'm also considering this school very seriously. I am going to try and visit FIT sometime this summer. I have heard nothing negative about the program, which as you know, is a rarity!!!! Somebody always has something negative to say about every school. Anyway, drop me a line if you want.
