MACON, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today helped announce a major aviation partnership between Macon-Bibb County, Central Georgia Technical College, and Robins Air Force Base. Senator Perdue was joined by Governor Brian Kemp, Mayor Robert Reichert, and Brigadier General John C. Kubinec, commander of Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex.

The partnership will co-locate Robins’ 402nd Commodities Maintenance Group with Central Georgia Technical College educational training programs at the former Boeing manufacturing facility in Macon. If approved, this partnership will be a first-of-its kind, workplace-based education and training program.

“It’s a great day for Middle Georgia,” said Senator Perdue. “Robins Air Force Base is one of Georgia’s greatest assets, and today’s announcement demonstrates Middle Georgia’s commitment to fulfilling the needs of not just Robins Air Force Base, but the entire Air Force. Once approved, this partnership will allow Robins to bolster capacity, take on more work assignments, and grow the local workforce of trained aircraft technicians. Brigadier General Kubinec, Chairman Robbie Fountain, Mayor Reichert, Commissioner Matt Arthur, Dr. Ivan Allen, and the 21st Century Partnership have been stalwarts in this effort, and I appreciate their leadership to make this partnership a reality.”
