FAA-Approved Curriculum

Our Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) curriculum is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The FAA acknowledges the critical role that maintenance technicians have in the aviation industry and the importance of quality training. Once certified, you will be federally licensed and approved to work on, repair, and maintain aircraft!

Hands-On Education

If you are reading this, chances are you’re hands-on. Traditional education can be frustrating and even alienating for those who need to learn by doing. But we’re different. We value hands-on learning and career training. Our instructors have worked as certified mechanics and are ready to treat the classroom like a hangar – because, often, it is one.

Experienced Instructors

Quality instruction makes all the difference. Just ask anyone who has ever had an amazing teacher. Our instructors bring experience and know-how from the many sectors of aviation directly to the classroom. We offer industry insight so that you’ll be prepared for your aviation maintenance career.

Career-Focused Training

Our training takes place in classrooms, labs, and aircraft maintenance hangars. Hangar instruction gives access to aircraft at live airfields with the actual tools you’ll use in the industry. We believe that building on theory with practical experience is the only path to an aviation maintenance career.

Lifelong Certification

Upon graduation, Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certificates are issued by the United States federal government and NEVER expire. Once certified, you will be federally licensed for life!

Career Network

Recruiters from our vast network of industry partners come directly to you three times a year at NAA Career Fairs. Career Services assistance is provided to all students and alumni of all programs and is provided at no cost – ever.
