Aviation Maintenance Technology

Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) are individuals that have the important responsibility of keeping aircraft operating safely and efficiently. They service, repair, overhaul, and test aircraft and aircraft systems. All AMTs must be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and hold the rating of Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) mechanic. At Reedley College, you can train to become an Aviation Maintenance Technicians and earn your FAA A&P mechanic rating. With this rating, you are authorized to work on the airframe; which includes the wings, fuselage, tail assembly, and landing gear. You can work on the Powerplant; both piston and turbine types including the propeller. You can also work on the aircraft systems; such as electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and more.


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifies all aircraft mechanics. For an Airframe or Powerplant license, the FAA requires graduation from an FAA-approved school like Reedley College.

Reedley College is an FAA-approved school and has offered Aviation Maintenance Technician courses for more than 50 years. Students can earn an Associate in Science degree or a Certificate. Graduates of our program are prepared to take the FAA exams required for certification. As an added feature, the federally regulated oral, practical and written exams may be taken on-site at Reedley College.

Costs

 

Why pay the high cost of a trade school or private school?

Reedley College can provide the same or better education than a trade or private school at a highly affordable price. The cost of our 18-month (four semester) program is a fraction of what trade schools often charge and includes enrollment fees, a health fee, textbooks, a student body card, and parking fees. All necessary tools and equipment are furnished through the program at no additional cost.

In addition, scholarships, financial aid and Veterans’ benefits are available for students who qualify.
