At a recent Duncan Aviation customer dinner in Lincoln, Nebraska, a customer praised the work the National Business Aviation Association’s Maintenance Committee is doing through its Technical Reward and Career Scholarships (TRACS). The committee is dedicated to promoting technical education and training and provides current and aspiring maintenance technicians the opportunity to receive training scholarships.
Duncan Aviation recently had a technician chosen for one of these scholarships. Airframe Technician Reece Pedersen received a TRACS scholarship for Bombardier Learjet 60 training. TRACS covered the cost of the course, and Duncan Aviation picked up his travel costs.
“The TRACS scholarship was a great way for me to obtain some additional training,” Reece says. “The training was excellent and has given me an even better understanding of the aircraft. The TRACS scholarship is a great way to improve yourself and add to your experience. I encourage not only those in college but those working as aircraft technicians to apply. There are technical classes that appeal to a wide range of individuals.”
The NBAA MA TRACS application for 2016 will be online at NBAA’s website, nbaa.org, in late 2015.
