Aviation Technology

The Aviation Maintenance Technology curriculum starts with general entry-level subjects such as aircraft familiarization, math, physics, and basic electricity as applicable to aircraft. Inspection techniques, drafting, welding and basic maintenance processes are included, also.
Airframe subjects include structures (both sheet metal and composite) and aircraft systems such as hydraulics, pneumatics, landing gear, flight controls, electrical and fuel. Powerplant subjects include the teardown, inspection, buildup, and testing of reciprocating and turbine engines and their sub-systems. Students will have the opportunity to test run the engine that they repair.
Your studies can lead to a gratifying career maintaining and repairing aircraft or to other careers, including analyzing work methods and best practices, designing support systems for maintenance personnel, monitoring safety, developing and delivering training, and more.
