Plattsburgh Aeronautical Institute can provide the skills, training and certification that local businesses value.
That was one of the messages as CV-TEC hosted an open house at its satellite campus, which is home to the Federal Aviation Administration-certified Part 147 Airframe and Powerplant school.
Some graduates of the institute have already done so, finding work at Norsk Titanium, the additive manufacturing firm that expects to hire hundreds over the next few years.
During a recent meeting, Norsk officials told the CV-TEC team that students who earn FAA certification show qualities the company looks for in employees, such as dedication and attention to detail.
“We’re excited to support, as was the original vision to create this program, economic development in our area,” McCartney said.
“This is a good example of how we can do that, both on the aviation side and the manufacturing side.”
