Hometown: Woodbridge, Virginia
Six years ago, Nelson Guzman worked for a local janitorial company, cleaning the hangar floors at Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.
Today, he’s a structural mechanic at Gulfstream, where he assembles frames for state-of-the-art cockpits for the company’s G450 and G550 jets.
At the age of 19, Nelson formulated a plan to get the training he needed to transition from sweeping floors to building high-tech airplanes. The key component of that plan was attending Savannah Tech’s Aircraft Structural Assembly program.
