Grant will help boost aviation careers
San Bernardino Valley College’s Aviation Maintenance program has landed a $400,000 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to support students with an interest in careers in aviation maintenance.
“Supporting technical career opportunities for Inland Empire students is incredibly important,” said Rep. Pete Aguilar, who wrote a letter to the FAA. “These opportunities provide our students with a stable career and a livable salary right here in our community. I am proud to announce funding that will encourage students pursue a path that will help them receive the education and training necessary for a successful future.”
The money will help foster the link between local high schools and San Bernardino Valley College, which will create apprenticeship programs for students interested in the aviation industry.
“By capitalizing on SBVC’s established Aviation Mechanics/Airframe and Powerplant Technology program and leveraging existing positive relationships with local K-12 districts, the project aims to not only increase the pool of FAA-certified aircraft maintenance technical workers within the region, but also to prepare students for potentially life-changing opportunities and careers in aviation.
“Student success through the project may very well lead to entire families within our community and region being lifted out of the cycle of poverty,” said Dr. Joanna Oxendine, college dean of Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectives with Grants Oversight.
