National Aviation Academy is an FAA-approved Part 147 school and offers programs in aviation maintenance and avionics technology.
Each of our programs prepares you to pass the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) exams required to obtain your 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 gears.
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 their exams upon completion of training.
NAA 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.
Students can choose to enroll in both programs, which make up the 21-month Aviation Maintenance Professional (AMP) program. With today’s sophisticated aircraft, technicians with both mechanical and electrical education are in high demand.
NAA also has two specialized training courses for qualified candidates. The Aviation Maintenance Certification (AMC) course lasts two weeks and is ideal for former military personnel with previous aviation maintenance experience. NAA also offers a weeklong Inspection Authorization (IA) program for technicians who already have their A&P license and at least 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.
