FEAM AERO and AIM Charlotte team up to offer scholarships
Trades Workforce Foundation, FEAM Aero, and the Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) Charlotte campus are teaming up to offer 4 scholarships valued at $1000 each to currently enrolled students. AIM will match each scholarship dollar for dollar, a total of $2000 per student that qualifies!
FEAM Aero began when a two-man aircraft maintenance operation set out to relentlessly accomplish one thing: to become the world’s leader in aircraft line maintenance services. 30 years later, FEAM has accomplished exactly that, while never losing sight of where they started of their commitment to safety, quality, and putting people first. As a proud family-owned and veteran-owned operation, FEAM places missions over markets because when you take care of people, business is inevitable.
AIM was founded in 1969 as an agency dedicated to workforce development and career training. Founding President Gerald Yagen formed Employment Services, Inc. in Norfolk, Virginia to provide contemporary employment services to those in need of careers throughout Southeastern Virginia. His employment agency thrived through the 1970s, and in 1982, he founded The Electronics Institute of Technology, a post-secondary institution that provided electronics, computer, and office administration training to those seeking to enhance their career potential. In the mid-1980s, Inc. Magazine selected the organization as one of the 500 fastest growing privately held companies in America.
Mr. Yagen, the President of Aviation Institute of Maintenance, has a considerable history in the maintenance, repair, and operations of sophisticated aircraft, and in 1994, he acquired a school that prepared students for a career in aviation maintenance. Under the new corporate entity Technical Education Services, Inc., Tidewater Tech Aviation was first located near Norfolk International Airport. In January 2003, the school was renamed Aviation Institute of Maintenance, and the school relocated to Chesapeake in 2007. In 2019, AIM established a new branch campus in Charlotte, North Carolina and acquired Teterboro School of Aeronautics in Teterboro, New Jersey. All campuses are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). The schools graduate hundreds of aviation maintenance technicians yearly. The President and Owner of Technical Education Services, Inc. is responsible for the school governance and designates this responsibility to the Campus Executive Directors of each of the local campuses.
The scholarship will remain open through October 14th and winners will be announced the last week of October.
