Klamath Falls, Ore. -- An aviation science program will soon be taking off at Klamath Community College.
KCC will be hosting an open house, and job expo on Tuesday for the kickoff.
KCC will offer the aviation science program through a partnership with Precision Aviation Training.
Klamath Community College's Ryan Brown notes that there's already a strong demand for the program "The nature of the helicopter pilot program that we're offering, we believe will have national and even international interest."
Brown adds that KCC is inviting the public, and job seekers to visit for an open house Tuesday "It's a campus-wide showcase, and a job fair taking place simultaneously."
KCC programs in nursing, culinary arts, automotive and diesel technology have been thriving despite a sluggish economy.
"Because more people are looking for training for employment." Explains Brown. "Either to get the few jobs that are out there, or move up and secure the jobs that they have."
Campus tours will begin at 10:30, while the job expo will begin at 1:30.
