Aviation Maintenance

The Aerospace/Aviation Technology-Aviation Maintenance Program is designed to prepare students for a career in maintenance and repair of various aircraft. This program is designed to give students knowledge and skills for the level required to pass the Federal Aviation Administration written, oral and practical examinations for an airframe and power plant (A&P) mechanics license. Aircraft technicians are required to perform preventive maintenance and troubleshoot, repair, install or replace parts relative to airframes and engines. Students will learn both fixed and rotor-wing aircraft as well as reciprocating and turbine engines.

Depending upon the type of work they do, aircraft mechanics and repairman work in hangars, on the flight line, or in repair shops. They use hand and power tools as well as sophisticated test equipment. Noise levels are high, and flight line mechanics often work outdoors in inclement weather. Sometimes the work requires physical demands that can be arduous. Aircraft maintenance technicians often work under pressure to maintain flight schedules or minimize inconvenience to customers, but a technician must not sacrifice high standards of workmanship in the process.
