Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology
About Our College
In 1929, Charles S. “Casey” Jones, a pioneer aviator and aviation company executive, foresaw the need for highly trained technicians to design, build and service aircraft and engines. George A. Vaughn Jr. and Lee D. Warrender joined with Charles S. "Casey" Jones in founding the Casey Jones School of Aeronautics, the predecessor of the Academy of Aeronautics, and after September 1986, the College of Aeronautics. Effective September 1, 2004, the Board of Regents of the State of New York approved the institution changing its name from the College of Aeronautics to Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology.
