EOCC Aviation College Training Planes

New aero-commander airplanes are coming to Enterprise Ozark Community College's Ozark campus.

Recently the college got their second plane for training students on hydraulic systems.

The new commander plane cost the college about $35,000.

What's special about this new teaching tool is it gives students a complete plane to work on rather than just sections.

EOCC Director of Technical Education Tom Kirk said, “We're pleased to have it with us here. It's going to help our ability to train these technicians to be able to work on the whole aircraft, and these commanders are a tremendous hydraulic teaching platform.”

Students will start working on the plane this fall.
