Hands On


Bill Wilkerson, a retired airline pilot and Tennessee Aviation Hall of Famer, recently donated his 1952 Cessna 195 plane to Greenville Tech’s Aircraft Maintenance Technology program. The plane will be used to enhance hands-on training offered through a Federal Aviation Administration-approved program, which prepares students to become maintenance technicians. Wilkerson is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and teaches life-saving procedures to pilots in his mobile flight simulator as part of his retirement work.
