Solano Community College has been selected by Delta Airlines to be an aircraft maintenance technician partner school.
Students who complete the one-year program will have the opportunity to meet with Delta officials about possible employment, according to a statement released by the college about the program.
The aircraft maintenance technician field is expected to grow at a rate of 5 percent over the next several years, the college reports, citing the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The airline will provide scrap aircraft and avionics parts and assist with program marketing efforts. Departing aviation technicians out of Travis Air Force Base will be targeted for the program.
