A 60 20 0 C1

This program prepares individuals with the basic knowledge and skills for a career as an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT), generally known as an Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) mechanic. The Aviation Systems Technology (AST) program is designed to prepare students for certification through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the Airframe, Powerplant, or both ratings.

Students who already possess either the Airframe or Powerplant rating are not required to enroll in AVI 110 Aviation Maintenance-General . However, presentation of the FAA Mechanic certificate, with one or the other rating for advanced standing must happen in advance of registration.

As a limited enrollment program and due to the AST program schedule, new classes are formed each Spring and Fall semester.

Program Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the Airframe and Powerplant certificate, the student should be able to:

  • Service airframe systems and structures as allowed by the FAA
  • Repair systems components within the limits prescribed by the FAA
  • Replace aircraft systems components within the limits prescribed by the FAA
  • Demonstrate proper documentation of maintenance, servicing, and repair records as required by the FAA
