LeTourneau University College of Aviation and Aeronautical Science, the only comprehensive, university-level aviation program in the state of Texas, was selected by Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation, as a 2016 Top Hawk Partner University.
As part of the Top Hawk program, LETU aviation students had the unique opportunity to take recruiting and outreach trips to airports around the country, as well as conduct flight training, in a brand new Cessna Skyhawk 172S, which featured the university’s colors and logo. The University purchased the airplane and added it to the training fleet at the completion of the 2016 program.
Top Hawk is leading the way for collegiate aviation programs to continue training the next generation of pilots. Top Hawk is a partnership between Textron Aviation and top university aviation schools to provide students with access to the world’s most popular trainer, the Cessna® Skyhawk®, and provide unique internship opportunities with the leading general aviation manufacturer.
