HOW TO GET AROUND.

Environment.

Goodyear, Arizona

The city’s history is closely connected with the history of aviation. Its name originates from 1917, when 16,000 acres were purchased for the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company to make rubber tires for airplanes in World War I. Goodyear Airport was built during World War II as a naval airbase. LAT started flight training here in 1970 >

With a population of 75,000, the City of Goodyear offers a diverse range of shops, restaurants, activities, and events.

Airport location

The airport itself is located quite a way from any grocery store or restaurant. Our cafeteria does offer some options for food on campus, but other than that you will need a car to go and buy groceries. A lot of students buy a car together and share it. You can also rent a car at the local car rental office and benefit from our LAT rates.

Dangerous species

Because Arizona has such fair weather, the animals like it too. There are a few dangerous species to watch out for, especially while you’re out enjoying nature, such as poisonous snakes, scorpions, spiders, mountain lions, coyotes, and other desert animals.

Humidity

Arizona has a very dry climate and it is important to stay hydrated, especially if you are in a plane. Your body will lose a lot of fluid during the day. Dehydration weakens the body and affects your thinking. So if you want to stay healthy and be able to perform at your best, you need to keep a water bottle close by.

ENJOY YOUR STAY.

Recreation.

Whether you want to take a day hike or explore the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon, explore wine country in Sedona or ski the slopes in Flagstaff – Arizona has it all. With its many trails and lakes, there is never a shortage of outdoor adventure.
