Aviation Technology

Aviation_WorkASU Mid-South and Arkansas Northeastern College are ADTEC partners in this initiative, supported by $3,391,053 in funding by the U.S. Department of Labor, which promotes workforce development and economic development by supporting the workforce training needs of the aviation industry in Arkansas and western Tennessee. The project creates a career pathway in aviation maintenance technology, which includes an FAA-certified Airframe and Powerplant technician training program, and creates capacity to deliver training, including curriculum development and the acquisition of faculty and equipment.

An additional $1,500,000 from the Economic Development Administration bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce helped to fund construction of an airport training facility for the program. The Delta Regional Authority provided $250,000 to establish the Mid-South Institute for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Training which will support job training and/or employment-related training for the aviation, manufacturing, steel, renewable energy, and oil/gas industries in eastern Arkansas, western Tennessee, northwest Mississippi, southeast Missouri, and southern Illinois.


ADTEC has been named a Top 10 national finalist for the prestigious Bellwether Legacy Award, to be presented by the Community College Futures Assembly in January 2014.
