Technical Training
New Aviation Maintenance Academy

On 22 September, HAECO Americas, in conjunction with the Lake City-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and the Columbia, Union, and Hamilton Counties School Districts, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Tri-County Aviation Maintenance Academy.


The academy, located in the grounds of HAECO Americas’ aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in Lake City, Florida, comprises three classrooms and a hands-on learning lab, which will serve to provide high school students with an opportunity to learn more about the aviation maintenance industry. In addition to hosting the academy facility, HAECO Americas will provide classroom instructors, job shadowing and paid internship opportunities for enrolled students as they progress through the programme.
