Aircraft seminar to land at City College

An aeronautics training seminar specializing in skills for future civilian professional pilots and aircraft maintenance personnel will be held at City College on the weekend of Dec. 12-13.

“We’re just trying to give the students as many advantages as we can before they go out there looking for employment,” said Phil Cypret, an aviation department professor who helped bring the seminar to campus.

The two-day Introduction to Turbojet Aircraft Systems Seminar will be presented by the Oregon-based Exceptional Aircrew Training group, and includes 13 hours of instruction for $125.

According to the seminar’s press release, some of the topics covered will be hydraulics, pneumatics, powered flight controls and other aviation-related topics.

Cypret stressed the seminar’s value in providing students with specific-industry training, commenting that City College courses in aviation only deal with the general field.

“When you’re out looking for a job—especially in a tight job market—if you have any industry training, that goes a long way in finding a job because you’ve had something the other students may not have had,” said Cypret.

“It’s pretty much a stagnant economy,” said aeronautics major Ian Lordanich.

Although the current economy is competitive for job placement in the aviation industry, Cypret said experts in the field expect significant job openings in the near future as a result of the baby boomer generation retiring from the workforce.

“Part of our job here is to make sure… we’ve got people trained and ready to step into those jobs,” Cypret said. “And that’s where we differ from the academic side; [that] side is to get people ready to transfer into a four-year degree, ours is to get them ready to enter the workforce.”

The seminar is expected to draw students at City College enrolled in the airframe and powerplant program. Successful completion of the program allows students to get a certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration, which allows them to work on aircrafts, according to Cypret.
