Military & Veterans

The relationship between Embry-Riddle and the military goes back to the 1920s, when the Army Air Corps taught John Paul Riddle to fly. 

Riddle returned the favor almost 20 years later during World War II by training thousands of Army Air Corps pilots, Naval aviators, and Royal Air Force and French pilots.

That tradition lives on today in our commitment to active-duty military and veterans.
