College Grounds Its Aviation Program



by Rebeca Velazquez

MONROE, La – The aviation program at Delta Community College has permanently grounding its program.

Due to a lack of funding, students will not be able to return to take classes for the fall semester.

The program started back in 2014 and has closed its doors due to a lack of funding from Flying Tiger Aviation.

13 students cannot continue their education in aviation at Delta Community College as a result of insufficient funding.

Dennis Epps, Chancellor at Delta Community college says, “It’s unfortunate. We are not in a position to where we are trying to cast blame or anything. We are just dealing with the reality of a default. We are putting a process in place to where we are going to have a claims process established so that students can come forward.”
