Today's field trip was to the aviation mechanics program at Ivy Tech Community College in Fort Wayne. We had a great meeting with Bill Terhune and he gave Jordan some good advice on how to evaluate some of his options for preparing for a career in aviation, especially related to missions aviation. We were pretty impressed with what he showed us in the program, enough so that we cancelled our appointment at IPFW afterwards, because Jordan is pretty sure that an aviation mechanics program is the direction he wants to try.
The Ivy Tech program is less expensive than the other two schools we're looking at but takes longer to finish. Nothing's ever simple, is it?
