Supervisor Haas Congratulates “ACE” Program Interns
Students Participating in work at Mitchell International Airport
Supervisor Jason Haas was in attendance today to honor MPS students beginning their summer internships at Mitchell International Airport as part of a long-time program called “ACE” (Aviation Careers and Education).
The 35 students will take part in an eight-week experience that could lead to a life-changing, full-time aviation career. Celebrating its 25th year, the ACE Program provides disadvantaged youths with valuable work experience and connections within the aviation industry.
“I couldn’t be more pleased to see Mitchell Airport working with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to provide these students such amazing opportunities,” Supervisor Haas said. “I know some of these ACE graduates have gained transferrable skills, and have been able to turn their summer internships into permanent jobs.”
The internship opportunities include aircraft maintenance, retail, security, IT, baggage handling, and administrative work, all under the supervision and guidance of seasoned employees.
This year’s employers include the Transportation Security Administration, 128th Air Refueling Wing, Paradies Gift Shops, Milwaukee Cessna/Citation Service Center, Signature Flight Support, Aircraft Service International Group (ASIG), and Milwaukee County’s General Mitchell International Airport.
“With the Airport in my district I’m excited to support this great program,” Supervisor Haas said. “This is just another reason why Mitchell Field is growing into one of the premier airports in the region and nationwide.”
