SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah Techical College takes flight with the grand opening of its new aviation training center on Monday.  

The nearly 30,000-square foot aviation training center features a 5,000 square foot hangar, labs and classrooms. They're features that are essential in training employees for the thriving aerospace industry.  

The new aviation training center offers one diploma and three certificate programs for keys areas such as aircraft assembly and maintenance. 

"This has been in the works and the plans for probably over seven years. Nothing moves swiftly, particularly in the economic times that we've had, so it is a welcome addition to what we are doing," said Savannah Tech President Dr. Kathy Love.   

Savannah Technical students will be using the new facility when classes begin Thursday.
