SUU Aviation Helicopter Lands At The ALC Today

Submitted by amy.ewell on Mon, 04/19/2021 - 10:39

SUU’s Aviation Program landed a helicopter on the West side of the Advanced Learning Center this morning. They’ll be there from 9:30-11:50. They are coming to talk about their fixed-wing and helicopter flight school, their aviation mechanic program (there’s a huge shortage right now), and will be bringing their CE coordinator to answer any SUU-related questions for students that are planning on attending any of SUU’s programs. All of your students are more than welcome to attend at any point in that window.
