Representatives from local aviation companies including Causey Aviation, Aero Services, Textron, HAECO Avionics and Spark Chaser will also be available to discuss different career opportunities in the field.

Coursework includes general aviation maintenance, sheet metal, airframe systems, electrical and electronic systems, practical wiring, navigation equipment, communications equipment, radar and air traffic management systems, flight management and flight control systems and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations. Upon completion of the program, students will receive an associate degree in applied science in aviation electronics (avionics) technology and gain their FCC licensing.
