Randall Green Donates a 1972 Sabreliner Model 40 to
Cape Cod Community College

To Improve their AMT Program & Add Needed AMTs to Aviation

Aviation must have a constant supply of talented, trained and qualified technicians. The forecasts of the future availability are not positive. There are efforts to try to rectify this shortage and there are some very creative initiatives to stimulate interest in this profession.

In addition to these macro campaigns, local action is helping. Mr. Randall Green, President of Safe Flight Instrument Corporation in Stratford, Connecticut is generously donating a 1972 Sabreliner Model 40 jet airplane to the Cape Cod Community College. Its new home will be CCCC’s Aviation Maintenance Tech Program hangar at Plymouth Municipal Airport.

The plane is powered by two turbo jet engines. Since FAA standards require that students be trained on completely operational turbo jet engines as part of their education, the Green contribution will create the requisite pedagogical tool.

The 12 month program will increase the number of aviation technicians and address the regional workforce gaps.

This occupational profile is provided by O*NET.

Upon successful completion of the Aviation Maintenance Technology certificate, students are able to:

  • Receive Powerplant Certificate.
  • Sit for FAA license exam.
  • Demonstrate the knowledge of aviation maintenance and increase opportunities to enter an aviation career field.

Mr. Green’s donation to CCCC will add to the pool of talented, trained, qualified AMTs.
