A fully functional jet airplane will be delivered to Cape Cod Community College today, a gift the provides one of the final pieces necessary for Federal Aviation Administration certification of the college's AMT Power Plant Training Curriculum.
Late this afternoon, a 1972 Sabreliner Model 40 jet airplane will be delivered to the CCCC Aviation Maintenance Tech Program hangar at Plymouth Municipal Airport. The plane is powered by two turbo jet engines. Since FAA standards require that students be trained on completely operational turbo jet engines as part of their education, this give provides that critical component.
The jet is the gift of the very generous Mr. Randall Green, President of Safe Flight Instrument Corporation in Stratford, Connecticut.
Once the plane is delivered to the college it will not fly again. As a ground-training tool, it will be stripped of all FAA certifications of airworthiness and FAA certifications. It is gifted strictly for educational purposes and cannot be repaired, rebuilt or remanufactured for a return to flight at any time.
