OUR STRATEGY

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, ad autem erroribus eum, eum edu maluisset constituto, sam ut for has. Lorem ipsum dolor siters mar amet marcelleo.

By January 1, 2020 all aircraft must be equipped with the NextGen ADS-B technology to be compliant with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations. This training program is designed to meet the needs of the aviation industry while developing local talent for jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics avionics technicians earn a median salary of $58,540 up to $87,570.
Training includes reviews and tests for two of the most important licenses of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and one-year membership in the Avionics Technician Association.
