Aviation mechanics school
As an aviation mechanic, you will be able to ensure the safety of commercial airlines and their passengers by keeping the aircraft in peak operating condition. You will perform scheduled maintenance; make repairs, and complete inspections required by the FAA.
As modern aircraft depend on computers and electronic devices for navigation this is a very responsible role for highly skilled aviation mechanics. AMTs are also responsible for the operation of emergency systems, communications, engine monitoring and passenger comfort along with many other safety features. To operate these systems, AMT’s must complete specialist training on top of their basic training required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
AMTs are also required by the FAA to carry out Aircraft inspections based on the number of hours the aircraft has flown, duration since the last inspection, rotation of operation or a combination of these factors. Many aircraft mechanics are also called airframe mechanics, power plant mechanics, and avionics technicians. In Canada Aviation Maintenance Technicians are known as Aviation Maintenance Engineers. AMTs may specialize in different areas including preventive maintenance, repair work or different types of aircraft.
Aviation Maintenance Technicians who learn their skills in schools certified by the FAA receive an Airframe Mechanic certification on successful completion of an exam requiring a minimum of 18 months practical work experience. Candidates must also pass a written, oral and practical exam. Aviation Mechanics can further their education to obtain an inspector’s license.
