July 14--GREENSBORO -- GTCC will hold an open house Tuesday for its avionics technology program.

The open house will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the college's Aviation Center II building at 819 Radar Road. Visitors will be able to talk with faculty members, learn more about the program and see on-site simulations.

The program -- the only one of its kind in the state -- teaches students about general aviation maintenance, electrical and electronic systems, flight management and flight control systems and Federal Aviation Administration regulations, among other things.

Students who complete the two-year course get an associate's degree in applied science in aviation electronics technology. GTCC said it has placed all of the program's graduates during the past three years in aviation jobs.

New day and evening classes will start in the fall. For more information, visit the program's website.
