Aerospace Technology Center to unveil renovated training aircraft

July 19, 2017
Instructors at UA - Pulaski Tech’s Aerospace Technology Center will have an unveiling ceremony for a renovated 1965 Cessna aircraft beginning at 9 a.m. Friday at the center, located at 1600 West Maryland Ave., North Little Rock.

The aircraft is used as a training aid for students to disassemble, reassemble and make run.

“We've had it for many years but it was in pretty bad shape and needed to be fixed up to make it a better training aid for the students,” said Vince Gemmiti, Director of Aerospace Technology and one of the aerospace instructor.
Instructor Robin Macagni has repaired and repainted the plane and will taxi it to the viewing area Friday for the unveiling. The students will be able to use the plane later that day.

The Aerospace Technology Center, located next to the North Little Rock Airport, is an FAA-certified school that trains aircraft maintenance technicians. Students earn their Airframe and Powerplant certificates, which allows them to work on any U.S. registered aircraft anywhere in the world.
