Oak Brook, IL – June 25, 2021 – Today, LAUNCH Technical Workforce Solutions LLC announced they have formed an alliance with Wichita State University.
Since its inception in 1985, Wichita State’s National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) has made a name for itself as the most capable university-based aviation research center in the United States, providing research, design, testing, certification and training to the aviation and manufacturing industries. Leveraging LAUNCH’s depth and expertise in providing aviation technical labor, this partnership will support NIAR WERX, a division of NIAR focused on rapid development of engineering, aircraft modification and overhaul.
LAUNCH is committed to expanding its relationships with various aviation training and certification schools across the nation. This alliance is an important step in taking those relationships to the next level – as aviation graduates from WSU will be integrated into the NIAR and LAUNCH partnership, learning valuable practical skills necessary to meet today’s market demands.
“This new alliance is an exciting example of the efforts at LAUNCH to partner with industry leading institutions and promote training and development opportunities throughout the country. We know firsthand the need to focus on recruiting new technicians into the field and advancing their skills through consistent practical training opportunities. Our technicians will provide support to NIAR on a variety of projects, increasing their skill and expertise and giving NIAR access to a flexible workforce size as needed,” said Mike Guagenti, LAUNCH CEO.
