National Aviation Academy (NAA) has been training aviation professionals since 1932 and offers programs in aviation maintenance and avionics technology.

NAA’s Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program is an FAR Part 147 accredited program for students wanting to attain their Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) certification. In this 14-month program, students receive qualified instruction from licensed A&P instructors who teach real world experience.

NAA also offers Avionics Technology (AVT) training for those who possess an A&P certification and want to continue their education. The avionics program is seven months long and focuses on teaching the electrical components and systems of an aircraft. With today’s sophisticated aircraft, technicians with both mechanical and electrical education are in high demand.

Students can choose to enroll in both programs, which comprise the Aviation Maintenance Professional (AMP) program. This program is 21 months long and students receive instruction in both aviation maintenance and avionics.

NAA also offers two specialized training courses for qualified candidates. The two-week Aviation Maintenance Certification (AMC) program is ideal for former military personnel with previous aviation maintenance experience. There is also a one-week Inspection Authorization (IA) program for technicians who have an A&P license and have three years of work experience.

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.

Highly qualified aviation maintenance and avionics instructors add experience to the highest level of instruction. Emphasis is placed on the student’s mastery of career-related skills and builds self-confidence for entry into the industry upon graduation.
