Our Aviation and Collision Repair classes toured the Duncan Aviation Corporate Aircraft Maintenance Faculty today. It is a family owned and operated business since 1950. It is a beautiful brand new facility.  They showed the students the many things they offer corporate businesses that have planes. They can fuel, paint, build cabinets, any form of complete airplane retrofits that someone may want, they also service and bring any inspection items up to date.

Students take to the Air with Paper

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Wed, 02/09/2022 - 07:50

The Unmanned Aerial Systems (Drones) class has been learning the FAA regulations to fly UAS.  At the end of the course, the students will be able to take their FAA Remote Pilot License Test.

This past week the students from the Aviation class took a break from the book work to learn about the forces that allow aircraft to fly and experiment with paper airplane drones. 

The students designed their own paper airplanes and then fitted them with PowerUp 3.0 drones.
