Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) Chesapeake has relocated their flagship campus to a new facility at 2329 E. Little Creek Road, Norfolk, VA. This comes in juncture with AIM’s recent acquisition of Teterboro School of Aeronautics in the New York City Metro area, being the Aviation Institute of Maintenance’s 13th campus nationwide. The new Norfolk campus building was previously the Calvary Christian School, and during renovation AIM donated the left over school equipment to the City of Norfolk and REACH, Inc. (Reading Enriches All Children). According to the 2019 Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook, the aviation industry will need to hire over 769,000 AMTs over the next 20 years. With the increase of its student body and the growing need for aviation maintenance technicians, the move provides the school expansion and modernization opportunities.

The new campus is housed in an 11-acre, 109,000 sq. ft. facility. The building has two separate hangars, one for airplanes and the other for powerplants. It also includes a separate engine room along with specific areas for welding, soldering and composites. The school’s equipment includes multi-engine and single-engine aircraft, airframes, turbine and piston engines, a helicopter and specially designed training aids.

“Our new campus is our largest Aviation Maintenance campus around the country, with two aircraft hangers, a glass-enclosed engine room, and a gym and basketball court to enhance student life.  We are thrilled to launch our flagship campus in Norfolk on prominent E Little Creek Rd.” -Dr. Joel English, VP of Operations, Aviation Institute of Maintenance

AIM Norfolk’s new campus offers the convenience of an on-site certified testing center where students can take their Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) written examinations. All classrooms are equipped with Smart TV technology and WIFI is available for students. A fully equipped computer lab and Learning Resource Center are available to students, along with separate lounge areas, including a special area for our veteran population. The school also has a 13,000 sq. ft. gymnasium with a full-sized basketball court for student activities and community events. The facility is less than 2 miles from Norfolk International Airport.

AIM and Fulcrum Labs Take Home Top Honor in C…

AIM and Fulcrum Labs Take Home Top Honor in CLO Magazine’s 2019 Learning in Practice Awards:

Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM), the nation’s largest provider of FAA-certified aviation maintenance education, and Fulcrum Labs, the industry leader in AI-powered adaptive learning technology, analytics and training outcomes, announced that they have been awarded gold in the “Excellence in Partnership” category of CLO Magazine’s 2019 Learning in Practice Awards.

Fulcrum Labs and AIM were recognized for the learning outcomes from their collaboration, which started in 2017 when Fulcrum Labs was hired to create and deliver an adaptive test preparation program that would encourage AIM learners to sit for and pass critical FAA certification exams. In the ensuing years, the two companies have leveraged Fulcrum’s proprietary behavior and knowledge mapping (BKM

™

) capabilities and predicative analytics to fine tune the learning strategy, content and delivery in order to meet AIM’s corporate goals and program objectives. To that end, the two companies recently reported that their test prep program has increased the total number of AIM graduates, encouraged 25 percent higher exam participation due to improved confidence, and improved FAA certification pass rates to more than 90 percent.

“The success of our partnership with Fulcrum Labs has empowered us to set new, exciting goals for our company,” said Joel English, Vice President at AIM. “Armed with the technology within this certification preparation course that we provide for all AIM students, 22 percent of the new graduates that the FAA certified in 2018 came from AIM campuses, and we’re committed to producing 25 percent – or one in every four – of all FAA-certified aviation mechanics for the industry in 2020.”

AIM also hopes to increase pass rates by an additional 25 percent by 2021, moving the aviation industry toward unprecedented certification rates and filling a persistent and critical skill gap that has plagued the industry for years. No doubt, the companies will continue to expand on their already fruitful partnership to achieve these goals together.

“This partnership award underscores our dedication to building strong client relationships,” said Patrick Weir, CEO of Fulcrum Labs. “It validates our commitment and success executing our mission to turn students (and employees) into learners and turn learners into confident subject matter masters.”

Since 2003, the Chief Learning Officer Learning In Practice awards have recognized learning leaders who demonstrate excellence in the design and delivery of employee development programs through a combination of qualities such as leadership, vision, business acumen and strategic alignment.

Learning in Practice winners were announced at the CLO Fall Symposium on October 14, 2019, in Chicago. For more information about these awards, visit: https://learninginpractice.clomedia.com/.
