Program offering at HCC Rankin campus

PEARL, Miss. (AP) - Hinds Community College is adding an aviation technology program to the Commercial Aviation D.

The program, to be offered at the Rankin County campus in Pearl, will lead to an associate of applied science degree.

Hinds officials say the school was encouraged to develop training programs that will prepare people for non-flying positions.

Official say graduates will be prepared for national certification in airport operations, aviation security technology and air traffic control.

Hinds already offers programs in aviation maintenance, commercial aviation and avionics at its John Bell Williams Airport and air traffic control at the Rankin campus.
