Aviation Maintenance Technology

The Aviation Maintenance Technology program is FAA approved and includes training in the latest methods in the aircraft maintenance technology industry. With 10 aircraft to train on, you will receive hands–on instruction in aviation mechanics: including jet engines, helicopters, sheet metal, electrical systems, hydraulics, and more. When you have completed the program, you will be prepared to take the Federal Aviation Administration exam for licensing as an airframe and power plant technician or mechanic. After that, you can enjoy the challenge of maintaining, servicing, or overhauling a variety of aircraft, from wide body commercial jets to helicopters.
