Tulsa AA Executives Donate MD-80

American Airlines donates an MD80 aircraft to the Miguel Such Vocational School in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Executives with the American Airlines Maintenance and Engineering Base in Tulsa donated the retired aircraft as a training tool for future mechanics.
The donated MD80 aircraft — delivered to American on Dec. 12, 1986, and retired this year — will provide students with opportunity for hands-on training with aircrafts they may work on in the very near future. American has donated equipment to the Miguel Such Vocation School for the past five years.
Past donations include Boeing 727 landing gears and a CF-6 engine
The Miguel Such Vocational School has a premier aviation training program, and is the only school in the Caribbean that offers this type of program. Admission is competitive and accepts only about 30 students per year. In fact, 60 percent of American’s maintenance team in San Juan graduated from the school.
