AIM to Open Training Campus in Norfolk
The Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) opened a brand-new facility in Norfolk, Virginia on March 17, 2020. The campus will be a training school in partnership with Hampton Roads area public high schools for 11th and 12th graders to learn new skills and earn high school credits.
Students at Hampton City Schools’ Academies and Norfolk Public Schools’ Career and Technical Education can earn up to 19 credit hours that are transferable to AIM career programs. The students will also earn FAA certifications in UAS piloting and general aviation. The partnership is designed to bring awareness to aviation careers, hands-on training, and pathways for students along with additional training for Hampton Academy teachers.
“Aviation Institute of Maintenance is proud to make Norfolk home,” said campus executive director Ashley Oden. “We’ve been so warmly welcomed by the community in our new location and look forward to celebrating with our friends and neighbors as we cut the ribbon.”
AIM will be showcasing two of their newest aircraft additions during the tour of the 109,000-sq-ft facility: a Cessna 421 and a Sabreliner 80, the latter was generously donated by the Hampton Academies and the Southeastern Virginia chapter of Women in Aviation.
