Tuesday, May 8, 2018: "Aviation Mechanics:Opportunities & Training!"; PLUS-2018 Scholarship Winners! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bette Gardner   
Thursday, 12 April 2018
Join us! Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at the Gavilan College facility at San Martin Airport, 13030 Murphy Ave, San Martin CA.

The gate in front of the school buildings will be open no code needed. Guests are welcome!

KEYNOTE ADDRESS: "Presentation on Aviation Mechanics: Opportunities & Training

The demand for aviation mechanics in the US will soon exceed the supply of qualified personnel. How is our community college meeting the challenge? The FAA-certified AMT program at Gavilan College trains students in airframe and powerplant maintenance, and also offers an associate degree with a major in aviation.

Recruitment is underway for the Fall semester.

Gavilan instructor Herb Spenner will share information about the need for AMTs, the current job market/opportunities, FAA requirements and training options, the program at Gavilan, how to reach out to future mechanics. There will be time for questions and answers.

We meet this evening at the Gavilan facility at San Martin Airport, and Herb will provide a tour after his presentation.

Herb has taught aviation at Gavilan College for six year. He is certified as an FAA A&P and IA, and holds a BSEE from Purdue University.

Annual Scholarship Awards

SCAPA will present scholarship awards this evening to three deserving young people who are pursuing careers in aviation. Enjoy the opportunity to hear their stories and congratulate them!

We gather at 5:30 pm, serve dinner at 6:00 pm ($15 members, $20 non-members), hold a brief business meeting at 6:45 pm, and begin a speaker presentation at 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome!
