Aviation maintenance students at Rancho High School were given the experience of a lifetime on April 8 as they received an all-access look at Maverick Aviation Group's corporate headquarters. The students also interacted with pilots and maintenance technicians.
Greg Rochna, CEO and Founder of Maverick Aviation Group, met with the students along with Bryan Kroten, vice president of marketing, to discuss the history of the aviation company. The students then got an up-close look at an Airbus ECO-Star helicopter, toured the facility's in-house paint shop and went inside a fixed-wing aircraft. 
Tours were led by quality assurance manager Tim Hoffman, as well as chief pilots Jim Ogletree and C.R. Sherman.
