ANNAPOLIS, MD (April 29, 2011) – Governor O’Malley will travel to Hagerstown tomorrow morning aboard a Cape Air regional flight from BWI-Marshall Airport to participate in the opening of the Aviation Maintenance Technology School. The school, operated and administered by the Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics, trains students to become entry level aircraft technicians. Graduates of the AMT program are eligible to sit for the FAA’s Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) certification examinations. The program for aviation mechanics will develop a skilled workforce to fill high-paying aviation maintenance positions and allow Hagerstown Regional Airport to expand services. The opening of the school is supported through the Skills2Compete initiative.
