Aviation program under investigation

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – An aviation program at a high school is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Dean of the Jefferson Campus of Jefferson Community and Technical College Bob Silliman confirmed JCTC and Jefferson County Public Schools voluntarily suspended the college's aviation program at the Academy at Shawnee High School.

Silliman said the FAA found some discrepancies in record keeping practices and other issues related to administration and instruction of the curriculum.

The 12-year-old program, which currently teaches 85 JCTC students and 20 JCPS students, has been suspended until further notice.

In the meantime, an interim program coordinator will be assigned to try to get the program started again.
