Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - Duluth has Cirrus Aircraft and now Superior will have Kestrel.

Tonight the CEO for Kestrel spoke with people about his company and even let them have a peek inside one of the planes.

The company is collaborating with WITC to give workers the necessary skills to build these air crafts.

WITC applied and received a 600 thousand dollar grant to start working with the company to produce the planes.

"What they also explained was that they would also be needing a number of composite technology technicians, people who can layer upon layer of carbon fiber and infuse resions and hardners create that and create the parts necessary to do this," said Dr. Charlie Glazman Assocate Dean in Continuting Education at WITC.

This will be the first program like it in the state of Wisconsin which is set to take off this fall.
