SUNY Broome Looking to Add Another Degree Program

SUNY Broome is receiving a donation that is making excitement levels soar.

Dr. Richard Bedosky and his wife are donating a "Piper Aztec Plane." The plane is the first step in the school's approval for its future airplane maintenance degree program. Bedosky said he has taken his family all over the country in this plane for the past 36 years and he is overjoyed that it will now go to a good home.

"I'm at the time in my life when I'm out of flying, I can't just go anyplace anymore, so what am I going to do with an airplane," Bedosky said. "This is, you can't even imagine how huge this is to me. Every minute, I'm just thank you, thank you for the opportunity to give it to SUNY Broome."

The airplane is being housed at the Binghamton Airport.The housing location will serve as the future lab site for the airplane maintenance program. The new program is now waiting on approval from the SUNY system and the Federal Aviation Administration.
