Aviation Maintenance Education Day and the Sopwith Pup

Posted by on May 10, 2013

On April 26, 2013 Aviation Institute of Maintenance in Dallas hosted an Aviation Maintenance Education Day.  The event brought over 125 high schools students, aviation maintenance hiring employers, and prospective students to campus to learn about aviation maintenance.  Guests were treated with tours of the school facilities and training equipment.  Additionally our instructors fired up our PT6, Allison 250 engines and our Robins R22 Helicopter.  To cap off the tour, our inquisitive  guests were given an opportunity to view our plans and progress on our WWI Sopwith Pup. They learned  about our chosen pilot Captain Pratt and the profound impact the WWI era had on modern aviation.
