Greensboro, NC -- Thanks to a new partnership in the Triad, there's a new wave of jobs and a road map for people to land them.

"Aviation Triad" is a partnership of companies, cities and organizations in the Triad who have formed a marketing campaign to direct young people into aviation training and employment.

On Wednesday, Kip Blakely, Vice President of TIMCO joined WFMY News 2 to explain the campaign.

Blakely said the aviation industry is always looking for skilled workers. And locally, there is a huge need for employment.

The campaign answers those needs by partnering with GTCC for the needed training.

"The success of this industry here will attract other businesses and the bottom line is more jobs," said Blakely.
