Brief Biography

Barry Franco

I am the Dean of the Aeronautical Studies program at Trident technical College. I have been employed by Trident for the past 10 years and have been involved in aviation maintenance for 26 years. I currently work to deliver training for Vought Aircraft Company and Global Aeronautica, the two companies in North Charleston ,SC that are involved in the building of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

I have always been interested in radio and have been an Amateur radio operator, or Ham, for the past 22 years. I am also involved in marketing the aviation programs here at Trident and believe the use of Internet radio is an excellent way to reach potential students, as well as to keep the public informed concerning matters of aviation.
