Aviation Program Spotlighted in National Magazine


Putting theory into practiceThanks to the journalistic contributions of a faculty member, theFebruary issue of Avionics News spotlights current students and an alumna of Penn College’s aviation program. Thomas D. Inman, an associate professor at the Lumley Aviation Center in Montoursville, conducted an interview with 2006 aviation maintenance technology graduate Gail A. (Krifka) Fike, a maintenance technician at EraMED’s Geisinger Medical Center base. In his regular Theory & Practice column in the premier trade magazine for the general aviation avionics/electronics industry, Inman also wrote about how schools can team up on mutually beneficial projects with museums and other institutions.
