The aviation program at Bridgewater State College in New Bedford, Mass., unveiled a new flight training center April 9 during an open house at New Bedford Regional Airport.
The program faced an uncertain future recently when Delta Connection Academy (DCA) did not renew its contract to provide flight training services at the school. Now it is rebuilding, with a revamped facility and a new in-house flight training program. The open house will feature the grand opening of the facility. A number of state and local officials are slated to attend.
Greg Bongiorno, manager of aviation affairs at Bridgewater State, said the program has reached out to nearby schools to spark students’ interest in aviation with the event.
