Greenville Technical College and S.C. Army National Guard open joint use facility at SCTAC


 

 At the new facility, GTC has room to expand enrollment in the Aircraft Maintenance Technology program to better meet needs for aviation employers, including the Army National Guard.  Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Veterans Administration, the college's Aircraft Maintenance Technology program provides students with the technical, mechanical, and academic skills needed to become aircraft maintenance technicians.

The new facility, almost five times the size of the program's former home, will allow the Aircraft Maintenance Technology program to offer students better hands-on experience.  It will house a comprehensive inventory of well'maintained jet and reciprocating engine aircraft and related equipment that enables students to master the skills required to succeed in this very competitive industry.  Donations by Tisa and Bill Wilkerson, Stewart Spinks, and Neal Workman and Will Huss of Trehel Corporation have expanded the fleet.  Additional donations by Carole and Gregg Cornell, John I. Smith Charities, Champion Aerospace, and the F.W. Symmes Foundation are providing equipment and other needs.
