AIM Manassas Gets Visit from Vietnamese Embassy

Posted by on May 18, 2016

Vietnamese Deligation at AIM Manassas

It’s a long way to AIM Manassas from Vietnam, but well worth the travel; so said the delegation from the Vietnamese Embassy as they explored the campus of AIM Manassas back in February. Their purpose was simple; to find an appropriate facility to train their countrymen/women in fixing aircraft safely and effectively. John Allbright (Director of Education) and Jan Schoonmaker (Campus Executive Director) were the perfect hosts as they accompanied the guests around the campus pointing out the extensive handson equipment used in teaching students. Let us not forget the faculty, most of whom have over 20 years of field experience while also holding an A&P License. Near the lobby, next to the glowing AIM sign, the tour ended. The officials of Vietnam seemed pleased with the expertise and professionalism of the staff, faculty and curriculum taught. As the months go by our campus seems to become a magnet of diversity, brimming with chances to learn new cultures. This makes AIM Manassas a great place to study a vocation built on safely maintaining the globalization of travel as we know it today.
