Delta Partnership

The field of aviation maintenance is exploding, and Lansing Community College offers one of the best training programs in the Midwest. In 2017, LCC was chosen by Delta Air Lines as one of 43 aviation maintenance partners in the country.

Aviation maintenance graduates who earn their Federal Aviation Administration licensure earn an average yearly salary in excess of $60,000. One hundred percent of LCC aviation maintenance technology students who take their FAA certification exams will pass, and many field multiple job offers before their course of study is complete.

In addition to meeting a national need for aviation maintenance technicians, LCC's AMT program and its partnership with Delta Air Lines will immediately fill open positions in Michigan, increasing regional flight safety and stimulating Michigan’s overall economy in the process. Delta Air Lines maintains industry leading safety standards and needs talented maintenance technicians to keep those high standards. The education provided to graduates of LCC meets, and exceeds, this standard of service.

Students who graduate from LCC's AMT program are entering a constantly expanding industry and, because of the consummate professionalism and ability instilled by their instructors, graduates have expanded LCC's reputation as a leading educator of aviation maintenance technicians industry-wide.

LCC's sleek AMT facility met more than 100 stringent criteria Delta used to measure AMT programs' strength, quality of instruction and the readiness of technicians upon graduation.

The Delta-LCC partnership is an example of how an industry marketplace joins with local educational excellence to facilitate sustainable, streamlined career opportunities. The partnership connects LCC aviation students with industry leaders before graduation.
