ROME -- Mohawk Valley Community College hosted Aviation Day, Saturday, to talk about their Airframe & Powerplant program and career opportunities it can bring.

Dozens of people came out to aviation day to explore career opportunities and learn more about the Airframe & Powerplant program. The one-year program teaches students how to maintain aircrafts.

"Aviation is a tremendous part of our country's economy and we've got to have enough aviation technicians to maintain this fleet of airplanes," said Ray Martin, Technical Assistant of the Airframe & Powerplant program.

Students learn first-hand the ins and outs of maintaining an aircraft which include troubleshooting engine systems, and making necessary repairs.

“What I’m hoping to gain is to finish up the course, get my [Airframe & Powerplant] license, and get a job doing what I love, which is working on aircrafts,” student Nicholas Hammond said.

Martin says it's never too late to get a start on your career.

"Aircrafts are only going to get more complicated, they're only going to get more sophisticated and this is just the place. If you like that type of thing, aircraft maintenance is for you."
