National Aviation Academy (NAA) is an Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved Part 147 school offering programs in aviation maintenance and advanced aircraft systems.
Each program provides the clock hours and training necessary for students to test for and obtain FAA-issued Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certification. Aviation maintenance technicians are trained to examine, service and repair various parts of an aircraft including the airframe, aircraft electronics, wings, engines and landing gear.
The 14-month Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program is comprised of 44 FAA mandated subjects divided into three sections: General, Airframe and Powerplant. This fast-paced program allows students to take FAA exams upon completion of training.
The 7-month Advanced Aircraft Systems (AAS) program is designed for those who possess an A&P certification, and want to become a more well-rounded and competitive candidate by training on the electrical components and systems of an aircraft.
Students can choose to enroll in both programs, which make up the 21-month Aviation Maintenance Professional (AMP) program. Today’s sophisticated aircraft require technicians with mechanical and electrical mastery, both of which are in high demand.
At NAA, students learn the curriculum through three primary modes: classroom instruction accompanied by text and workbook review, team-oriented projects in a laboratory setting which simulate on the job skills and real-world experience working on aircraft at our hangar.
NAA’s highly-qualified instructors have years of experience across all maintenance levels, bringing students the highest possible quality of training. Emphasis is placed on the student’s mastery of career-related skills and knowledge to that they are prepared to enter the industry upon graduation.
