MNTC Opens Aviation Maintenance Technology Program: VIDEO

MNTC Aviation Academy opens

Moore Norman Technology Center (MNTC) celebrated the opening of its aviation maintenance technology training program Monday, Sept. 25, 2023, with a ribbon cutting event at its Franklin Road campus in Norman, Oklahoma. The innovative training program provides students with a direct path to a career in aviation and aerospace, Oklahoma’s second largest and fastest growing industry.
We have national companies that are coming to Oklahoma and Cleveland County asking for students,” Cleveland County Commissioner Rod Cleveland said. “There's a pipeline directly to a job as soon as you graduate.” 
Cleveland serves on the board of county commissioners who directed $1 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) federal funding to the MNTC aviation maintenance technology training program earlier this year. When determining where to allocate the ARPA funding, Cleveland said that county commissioners wanted to include projects that provide critical support for residents, while improving infrastructure and mitigating the negative economic impacts of the pandemic.
“We wanted to put this money to the best use that we can and leverage it into the future,” Cleveland said.
The $1 million in ARPA funding allocated by Cleveland County Commissioners helped fund MNTC’s newly renovated training center, which includes classrooms, training labs, top-of-the-line equipment, aircraft components, a hangar, and a tarmac.
