PCC Aviation Technology Program Could See Major Funding Boost

Aviation technicians are in high demand nationwide.

Pima Community College could see a major boost in state funding in next year's budget. Gov. Doug Ducey proposed $20 million to help the college expand its Aviation Technology Program. It allows students to earn their associate degree in aviation technology or certifications in structural repair, airframe mechanics and power plant mechanics among others. Arizona 360 visited its facility near the Tucson International Airport and learned more about the growing demand for this type of skilled labor.
