Budget puts aviation college on hold

MOBILE, Ala. – Budget cuts have grounded plans for a stand-alone aviation college with a branch in Mobile, according to the chancellor of the Alabama Community College System. Bradley Byrne first announced plans for the Alabama Aviation College in October 2007. Byrne said he remains committed to the idea, but wants to delay it now because of budget considerations.
