Lake Superior College has announced a partnership with Delta Airlines for training future aviation maintenance technicians.

After a year-long evaluation of several schools around the country, Lake Superior College and 48 other schools were announced as training program partners with Delta.

“Lake Superior College is fortunate to have strong partnerships with many local aviation leaders including AAR and Cirrus, who are also looking to hire LSC graduates,” said LSC President Pat Johns. “We look forward to working with Delta Air Lines now as well, and continuing to have Lake Superior College and Duluth be seen as a top destination for aviation-related training and employment.”

Lake Superior College’s Aviation Maintenance Technology program is endorsed by the FAA and teaches students to "repair and maintain commercial and general technically advanced aircraft found in today’s market."

“We are excited to partner with Delta Air Lines,” said Dan Traska, director of LSC’s Center for Advanced Aviation. “The fact LSC was selected from many aviation maintenance programs throughout the country speaks volumes about the quality of our program, our instructors, and our community partners. This national partnership with Delta will help open up even more career opportunities for our students, as well as continue to help promote both LSC’s aviation program and our community as a thriving aviation hub.”
