The Charlotte County Airport Authority (CCAA) is requesting a total of $3 million in State funding through the State Appropriations process for a new combined hangar and classroom facility for Charlotte Technical College’s (CTC) FAA-certified Aviation Maintenance Technician School.

  • A larger facility is necessary to meet the aviation industry demand for aircraft mechanics, CTC’s growing student enrollment and it’s DEO requirement of 750 completers in 10 years (2018-19 Grant).
  • State funding is essential to keep CTC’s costs low enough for tuition to remain affordable for students.
  • CCAA will construct the facility and enter into a long-term lease with County Public Schools (CCPS) whereby CCPS will occupy and maintain the facility at the land-lease rate.
  • This project aims to diversify economic development opportunities in the region, create new and high-quality job candidates, and support a burgeoning aviation industry in Florida.
