September 24 2007

Atlantic Southeast Airlines is flying in one of its CRJ200 regional jets as part of a campus visit to Indiana State University’s aviation technology program, via the Terre Haute International Airport, on Sept. 25.

Representatives of the airline, which is based out of Atlanta, Ga., are coming to Terre Haute to give aviation students an up close and personal look at their aircraft and company. More than 50 aviation students will be in attendance to talk to the crew, sit in the cockpit of the 50-passenger jet, and find out more about career opportunities with the airline.

ASA currently has a letter of agreement with Indiana State University, in which the airline agrees to consider for interview graduates of the College of Technology’s aviation program who meet certain criteria.

MEDIA INFO: The event is from 9 a.m. to noon and the media are welcome. Media should enter the airport’s main gate, park in the short-term parking area, and check in at the first ticket counter located by the flight school.
