Piper Tomahawk donated to Aviation Maintenance Department
Columbus State's Aviation Maintenance Technology recently received a Piper Tomahawk airplane from Columbus State alumnus Dan Krumlauf, who graduated from Columbus State in 1988 with a degree in Finance. Years after learning to fly and buying the single engine Piper, Krumlauf found that he was no longer using it much, and the engine developed major problems.  This was the perfect situation for Columbus State’s Aviation Maintenance Department, according to associate professor Jeff Gruber.  “We have the same model engine for the Piper that was donated several years ago and overhauled by the students in class, but we had no way to test run the engine. We have plans to remove the bad engine this semester as part of the graduating capstone course and start overhauling the old engine in Summer Semester as part of AMT 2203 - Reciprocating Engine Maintenance I course,” said Gruber.
