Lockheed Martin Gift Adds Support to Aircraft Maintenance Technician Program

Lockheed Martin provided the Greenville Technical College Aircraft Maintenance Technology program a non-destructive inspection machine that is no longer used at its Greenville facility.  The machine will be used to teach students processes for inspection of aircraft components to check for cracks and other potentially significant problems without having to destroy the component or taking it a part.   This process helps assure aircraft operational safety and reduces inspection costs.
