Aircraft Powerplant Technology/Technician. 470608


This program is designed for students who intend to pursue careers not only in the aviation maintenance industry, but in other industries utilizing aircraft maintenance skills in hi-tech maintenance programs. The general education components prepare students to pursue baccalaureate studies, and advance to positions of leadership in the industry. Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to take the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification exams for Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Mechanics. This program is approved by the FAA, which requires that every single hour of instruction be given to each student. Because of this requirement and the vital importance of mechanical performance, class attendance is an absolute must to remain in good standing in the program. Failure to attend the classes in accordance with instructor-established guidelines may result in dismissal from the program. The program is divided into four separate segments: general education, general aviation, airframe, and powerplant. The general education core may be taken at any time before, during, or after the other segments are taken, depending on scheduling preferences. The remaining segments are taken sequentially in an intensive combination of lecture and laboratory learning. Students may be required to attend classes as many as 30 clock hours per week. Consult with your advisor each semester to determine an appropriate schedule.
