Aviation Maintenance Technology

Students get hands-on airframe and power plant mechanic's training in AC’s Aviation Maintenance program. The highly qualified faculty has vast experience with large jets, military planes, and small aircraft. Students work on aircraft with operational engines, controls and hydraulics, and running turbine/jet engines. This degree plan prepares and qualifies students to take Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mechanic's exams for General Airframe and/or Power Plant ratings. Graduates enter the industry with a comprehensive understanding of Aviation Maintenance Technology.

What can you do with an Aviation Maintenance Technology degree or certificate?


Aviation maintenance technology specialists maintain and repair aircraft engines, power train systems, propellers, fuselages, and hydraulic systems. They may also work with computers and other instrumentation which control the engine and radio communications. Throughout the US, there is an increasing critical shortage of aircraft mechanics and the number of United States commercial planes is growing.
