“The instructors are tough, but fair. They push you to your limits. No matter how well you fly, they will teach you more to help you to continue to improve. I’m very thankful for that,” he says.

To alumni of NMC aviation, Cristian wants to say, “Thanks for setting the bar high.”

And, to you, and other supporters, he says, “This would not have been possible without your support.”

Cristian graduated with his associate degree in the spring of 2017, and plans on furthering his education at Davenport University through NMC’s University Center.

Because of your support, NMC aviation is a rigorous program that is affordable to students like Cristian. And, because of you, he is on his way to achieving his dream of becoming a regional airline pilot.
