West Windsor, N.J. – The Aviation Flight Technology program at Mercer County Community College has earned a five-year reaccreditation from the Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI) of the University Aviation Association.
According to MCCC Aviation Program Coordinator Joan Jones, the accreditation, which was announced at the AABI’s Annual Meeting, follows an exhaustive self-study report, a multiple-day site visit by AABI representatives, and interviews with faculty, staff and students from the program.
Jones notes that until recently the AABI accepted only four-year institutions as members. MCCC was the first two-year program in the country to receive this prestigious accreditation and remains one of only three two-year schools nationally to have it.
“AABI standards are extremely high. We are proud to be included in this distinguished group of accredited aviation programs,” Professor Jones said.
