Cooper City, FL – October 6, 2017 – Today, AeroEngine Protection Corp (AEPCTM) and the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA) announced the formation of a scholarship program for individuals interested in a career as an aircraft maintenance technician. Aircraft maintenance technicians are the lifeline of the aviation industry as they are responsible for keeping aircraft flying by maintaining the aircraft to the safety standards mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). As more aircraft are produced over the next several years, the need for qualified aircraft maintenance technicians will continue to grow exponentially.

Recognizing this critical need, the goal of the AEPCTM and PAMA scholarship program is to increase education opportunities for individuals interested in working in the aviation industry as an aircraft maintenance technician. “The aviation industry needs bright young minds to meet the growing needs of the industry, stated John Goglia, Chairman, PAMA. “This scholarship program will provide a catalyst for those individuals interested in the industry who do not have the financial means to obtain the necessary training.”

“Education is a vital foundation for creating fulfilling, advantageous careers in the aviation industry,” stated Ron Zilberbrand, CEO of AEPCTM. “We are proud to help individuals interested in the aviation industry achieve their goals in building a successful career within the industry.”

The scholarships are designed to cover educational expenses including tuition, books and other fees. Learn more about the AEPCTM and PAMA Scholarship program.
