AVIATION MAINTENANCE PROFESSIONAL

National Aviation Academy offers a course that builds on the knowledge base of an A&P mechanic. NAA strives to be a leader in the field of aviation and understands the advancements within the industry. Today’s planes contain the latest technologies and electrical systems and we’ve designed a program to fit that need.

Our 3,000 clock hour AMP program combines Aviation Maintenance Technology (2,000 hours) and our Avionics Technology (1,000 hours) program. Students gain a well rounded education through traditional A&P training and advanced systems knowledge of todays modern aircraft. NAA curriculum includes wiring, troubleshooting electrical systems and advanced diagnostic training.

Today airplanes and jets continue to evolve with new systems both mechanically and electronically. Some of the latest commercial airliners have progressed past sheet metal to a lighter composite and the steam gauges in the cockpits have been replaced with large touch screens. It is important for technicians in the field to understand all components of the aircraft. These skill sets and knowledge make you more valuable to your company.
