Wayne Community College students receive aviation certifications

GOLDSBORO — Four Wayne Community College students have reached a major milestone in the Aviation Systems Technology program.

Deric Snow of Clayton, Kobe Pearson of Goldsboro, Trevor Shearer of Wilson and Timothy Dillon of Clayton completed all requirements to receive Airframe Certificates of Completion, allowing them to take the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) general and airframe mechanic written exams.

“Once they pass both of those tests, they can call a designated mechanic examiner and take the oral and practical tests,” said WCC Aviation Systems Technology Instructor Mike Crumpler. “If they successfully pass that experience, they will be issued a temporary Airframe Mechanic certificate so that they may exercise their new privileges until their permanent certificates arrive.”

WCC’s Aviation Systems Technology program provides students with the knowledge and skills to qualify for an aircraft mechanic’s certificate with airframe and/or powerplant ratings. The program offers an Aviation Systems Technology Degree, Aviation Systems Technology Airframe Diploma and Aviation Systems Technology Powerplant Diploma.
