Located just off the runway at the Williamsport Regional Airport in Montoursville, Penn College's Lumley Aviation Center is home to the next generation of aircraft maintenance technicians. A new YouTube video provides a glimpse inside the state-of-the-art facility complete with a fleet of instructional aircraft – including a Boeing 727, a Dassault Falcon jet and four helicopters. Viewers will also meet Matthew D. Krepps, instructor of aviation maintenance, and learn that many aviation students land job offers well before graduation day. “We start at the very basics, so that anybody who has an interest and a willingness to learn can definitely do it," he says. "It can seem daunting and difficult, but we have a support system such that students will find success. That's our goal. Our job is to get you to a place where you are the expert."
