Piedmont Airlines is offering the tuition program for the first time as a beta test for the company starting this fall and Liberty University is one of a small group of schools chosen to participate.
A limited number of students will receive a conditional offer of employment with Piedmont Airlines and full payment of tuition and fees as they work toward their AMT certificate. Spots are limited and interested students will need to apply by Aug. 13.
A recent report from Boeing says that over 739,000 new aviation technicians will be in need across the world by 2039.
The partnership between Liberty University and Piedmont Airlines hopes to meet that need by making quality training possible for students who are seeking a rewarding career in aviation.
