Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology (Spartan) is a for-profit aviation institute in Tulsa, Oklahoma that offers training in aviation, aviation electronics, flight, nondestructive testing, quality control and aircraft maintenance. Originally established to provide pilot and technicians for Spartan Aircraft Company, it outlived its parent company and continues to train pilots and mechanics into the 21st Century. The main campus is adjacent to Tulsa International Airport, with another campus used for flight training at Richard Lloyd Jones Jr. Airport.
In May, 2014 Spartan acquired the Crimson Technical College located in Inglewood, California. Crimson Technical College was founded in 1930, originally called The California Flyers, Inc. and eventually became the renowned Northrop University. On March 31, 2015, this campus took on the Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology name and added a branch located in Riverside, CA. In April 2016, Spartan also acquired Redstone College in Broomfield, Colorado. Redstone College took the Spartan College name in March 2017.
Spartan offers an Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) hybrid program leading to an AMT AS degree and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certification. This groundbreaking program, jointly developed with C-T-S.com, is the first of its kind to be approved by the FAA.
