As a major in the U.S. Air Force and a former F-16 instructor pilot, I know excellence when I see it. The Dodge City Community College staff here in Arizona, both administrative and instructional, consistently demonstrate a commitment to excellence that matches the very best I’ve seen in the Air Force. Their eagerness to help students succeed, whether in the classroom or in the helicopter flight program, is unmatched by any other civilian program I know. The friendly, welcoming demeanor of the administrative team, combined with the knowledge and individualized effort of the instructors, provides every student a clear path to becoming a college-educated, professional helicopter pilot.
