“The Alabama Aviation Center in Ozark, a unit of Enterprise State Community College, has formed a partnership with Bell Helicopter-Ozark to develop the Aviation Maintenance Training Program,” says Dr. Nancy Chandler, ESCC president.

“This program provides paid, part-time work experiences where AAC students can gain practical skills and knowledge while they complete their Associate in Applied Science degrees in Aviation Maintenance Technology.”

Initially Bell anticipates hiring four students but plans to expand the program to hire additional students.

“At Bell Helicopter we are committed to developing internal talent, positioning them for career growth, and helping build future leaders in the aerospace and defense industry. With that in mind, we are pleased to team with the Alabama Aviation Center,” says Barry M. Ford, general manager for Bell Helicopter in Ozark.

“Through AAC, we are able to provide our employees an opportunity to gain on-the-job experience while continuing their academic studies, in our own backyard.”

To be eligible for the positions, students must have completed at least 25 hours of study while continuously enrolled in the Aviation Maintenance Technology Associate in Applied Science Degree program. They must have maintained an overall minimum 3.0 grade point average.
