New Facility Coming Fall 2015

In the summer of 2014, RVC broke ground on its new Aviation Maintenance facility at the Chicago Rockford International Airport. The 40,000 square foot facility will have four classrooms, four labs, and an aircraft hangar. By comparison, the current facility has 15,000 square feet with one classroom, one lab, and a small hangar area. The new facility is expected to be ready for classes by Fall 2015.
