Vincennes Aviation Center at Indy gets upgrades

VINCENNES -

A major renovation of the Vincennes University Aviation Technology Center at Indianapolis International Airport is expected to begin next month and last about a year

Vincennes vice president for financial services and government relations Phil Rath says improvements on the 90,000-square-foot building will include a new roof and heating and cooling system, new hangars, remodeled classrooms and restrooms, and improved floors, hallways and entry doors.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports the approximately $6 million project is being funded by the state.

Rath said the Aviation Technology Center also is home to Vincennes' aviation flight program, but its primary focus is aviation maintenance, a program that offers about 120 majors.
