Ten lucky students are heading to Orlando to compete in an airplane maintenance competition and their tickets were paid for free by Allegiant Air.
Students from the Hagerstown Campus of the Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics will be showing off their skills against 162 other aviation repair schools across the country at the Maintenance Repair Organization Convention.
Students will be timed on their abilities to do mechanical repairs and research FAA documents.
Campus director, Butch Adams said students will begin training for the competition in January.
“It’s free airfare that we now have to go and compete in this competition to be a force to be reckoned with from Washington County,” Adams said.
The competition will be held on April 5th through the 7th of 2017.
