Feasibility Study for Aviation Programs at Hudson Valley Community College.
Buckley, Edward P.
This is a report on a survey to determine the feasibility of establishing aviation training programs at a New York community college. It examines existing sources, and present and future needs for commercial pilots, aviation mechanics, and airline stewardesses. Among the conclusions are the discovery that the aviation industry is on the threshold of a quantum leap, that no organized attempt has been made to provide training for the coming generation of students who will fill the needs of the aircraft industry, that the demand for licensed Air frame and Power plant (A&P) mechanics far exceeds the supply and predicted need, that no shortage of applicants is expected for airline stewardesses, and that approximately 20 junior colleges in the United States now offer programs in commercial pilot training. This report includes a list of resource personnel in the aviation industry, and results of a survey of 25 high school guidance counselors throughout New York state regarding student interest in aviation.
