FORT WORTH - Tarrant County College (TCC) has opened a 163,500-sf aviation center at 2301 Horizon Dr. in the AllianceTexas development.

TCC invested approximately $20 million for its purchase, design and renovation and the cost of furnishing and moving programs from the Northwest Campus.

The Northwest Campus Center of Excellence for Aviation, Transportation and Logistics reflects the district’s desire to educate future pilots, aircraft mechanics and logistics professionals, which manage and track goods in and out of the state.

Bell Helicopter set the stage for the new facility by selling the district its 161,000-sf military programs facility in 2013.

The district paid about $5.2 million to purchase 20 acres at the airport, which now features the aviation and logistics learning center. More than 900 students are enrolled in the district’s aviation program this semester.
