    My family members always wanted me to study in America. I had to do a degree in aeronautics, I did a lot of university search, in which the Lean University was among the top universities in the USA. The 85% in my 12th class helped me a lot in getting through the admission process and the fee that I paid for it was $45.

    Course Curriculum :

    I'll learn about aviation health and human factors, environment, emergency cabin preparation, procedures, model aircraft and more in the air traffic control degree program. And, I'm not going to be alone in that process. My Team was aviation experts with specialized technical credentials and grades as flight instructors. They're helping me make my visions come true, whatever they might be.
