    Yep going to ERAU, I have my A&P, doing an Avionics thing add on.

    This is off my school website, gets more into detail with some of the things associated with the program, sure most schools are similar.

    Tools I have a mix... my school had 2 sets of tool kits. I bought the first kit during an orientation, apparently someone dropped out. It was Snap-on/blue point.

    2nd kit I pieced together(mainly wrenches) with snap on. I eventually might buy some more snap on stuff, though I have been kind of liking Matco a little, our snap on rep is a dick, and its a pain to get pricing. People got through the program with harbour freight and craftsmen stuff.

    I suggest a decent pair of duckbills, needlenose, and diagnol cutters. Also a good set of 1/4 in drive socket set. Some combo wrenches, also some mini combo wrenches(craftsmen has a set) is nice to have. Screwdrivers.

    I can try and take a pic of my tools one day for you, to give an idea.

    For the school was ~$32k for tuition, getting certified was ~$700 FAA tests, DME fees, we only paid $100 per test for a DME since they teach at the school, I hear they charge $300 for outsiders. DME prices vary.

    It is pricey, I have heard there are community colleges around the country that do it the cheapest, but I looked into 2 other local schools. ERAU was $32k, a small school AIM in Orlando(they have bigger locations around the country) was $34k, and NAA is ~$26k.

    Price is important that is true at the same time you want to learn some stuff. Make sure the school is good. I woudln't touch the AIM school in Orlando with a 10 foot pole. Wife got a better job in Daytona then Tampa, and I figured we will see if the ERAU name is worth it. The classes also count as college credits, something to consider when picking a school. You could finish an AS at some schools.

    Feel free to hit me up with any more questions or let me know if you want info on the ones you had.

    Hey, this is quite random, but you're going to A&P school, right? I'm thinking about going back to school for this...If you don't mind me asking, what brand of tools did you buy? What is normally used? And how much (again, if you don't mind) is school costing you? I think you're going to ERAU, and they're quite pricey. I'm a UND grad myself. The school loans are killing me! Thanks for any help you can give me! Kris
