From the Lewis University website, 2023: “With active partnerships at both O’Hare and Midway International airports, and our very own regional airport right on-campus, we provide you with a total immersion into the aviation industry that is simply unmatched by programs in more rural locations.
“Lewis University programs are FAA-approved and nationally recognized. In fact, Lewis was recently awarded the Loening Trophy as the outstanding all-around collegiate aviation program in the nation. It doesn’t get much better than that. As a national leader in aviation education, established in 1932, the Lewis University name is well known and highly regarded giving our aviation graduates a strong professional network to tap into and a competitive advantage. Because we offer more than just a “technical” program you’ll also be exposed to courses in business, management, technology and liberal arts - exactly the type of holistic background aviation employers seek. Nearly 1.5 million pilots and technicians are needed by 2035 with another 800,000 jobs in aviation. As a result, our students are in demand more than ever. Many times, they are recruited right from the classroom. Lewis University is the place where aviation careers take flight.”
