Center Teams with Tech School on King Air Training
Thanks to a new collaborative agreement, a group of King Air 90 technicians did their practical training at Wichita Area Technical College. The group used WATC’s King Air 90, which it has on site for training purposes. “Customer reaction to the training was very positive,” says Center Director Wayne Sommerfeld. “And the team at WATC has been very friendly and helpful.” The Learning Center and the school continue to explore possible training exchanges – for example, WATC students may take advantage of the center’s avionics training facilities. “We look forward to working with them again,” Sommerfeld says.
