About San Antonio
San Antonio, Texas, the seventh largest city in the United States, and the home of the Alamo, is ideally located a short distance from the Texas hill country and the beautiful gulf coast. Our city enjoys a very diversified economy, with industries ranging from medical and healthcare to financial services to energy. We are the home of several of our nation's largest military bases; Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base and Randolph Air Force Base. Residents of San Antonio enjoy an overall cost-of-living that is much lower than in other parts of the country and even other areas of Texas.
The annual average temperature in San Antonio and the surrounding area is 68.6 degrees, with the warmest temperatures in July. In the winter, we average 20 days or less of temperatures below 32 degrees. The great weather conditions mean more flying days per year, so you can complete your classes more quickly and at less expense!
