HOW LONG will it take to get my A&P?

We are an aviation maintenance school that provides a path to earning your Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) licenses in as little as 14 months! Our Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program focuses exclusively on A&P training.

Do I need to have prior hands-on experience?

The short answer: No! We welcome students of all backgrounds. You will be in class with people of all different skill levels. Some may have military aviation experience, others may be holding tools for the first time.

what will my classes be like?

Training is hands-on and takes place in aircraft hangars, labs, and classrooms. Curriculum is taught through three modes: classroom instruction paired with text and workbook review, team-oriented projections in a laboratory setting, and real-world work experience on aircraft in a hangar.

is there demand in the industry?

Boeing's 2022 Pilot and Technician Outlook has estimated that 610,000 new technicians will be needed globally by 2041. Skilled technicians will be essential to combat the needs of the industry.
