Delaware Tech to expand its year-old aviation maintenance education program

 
The Daily Times
 
A year-old aviation maintenance education program at the Sussex County Airport will get a chance to spread its wings a bit more, thanks to support from Sussex County that will help provide new opportunities for residents and boost the local economy.

County Council, at its Tuesday, Sept. 28, 2010, meeting, approved a 30-year lease agreement with Delaware Technical & Community College to expand its aviation maintenance program at the County owned airport east of Georgetown. In lieu of monthly rent, the lease of a nearly 1-acre parcel off Rudder Lane would be for the college to build a new hangar, where students would learn how to work on airplane engines.

The expansion would be the second of a three-phase plan to grow a new aviation maintenance program at the college, which launched an airframe maintenance training program three years ago. The airframe maintenance program, the first of what will eventually be three disciplines under the overall aviation maintenance program, saw its first group of students complete their coursework earlier this month.

This agreement continues Sussex County’s role in the shared mission to provide enhanced educational opportunities for Sussex Countians, and that will allow our residents to train here and better compete for jobs here in the aviation industry,” County Administrator David B. Baker said. “With Del Tech’s plans to expand their program and our goal to attract more aviation-related businesses to our airpark and the community, this will further establish the Sussex County Airport as a manufacturing base and strengthen the overall economy.”
