"ECU gave me an insight into the work of a professional pilot."
"My aviation lecturers were involved in professional aviation so I always knew that what I was learning was up-to-date and relevant. As a result of this close industry involvement, I got a real insight into the everyday lives of pilots and other aviation pros. That makes a difference when you go looking for an aviation job. This experience I gained landed me (pardon the pun!) a leadership position at a prestigious flying organisation before I officially graduated. Who knows where I'll be able to go from here."
