Aviation Powerplant Mechanics

Lively Technical College’s aviation program is an Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to train prospective aircraft mechanics for careers in the airline industry, in aviation maintenance facilities, and in commercial and General Aviation (GA).

Program Overview

The Aviation Powerplant Mechanics  program is designed to prepare students for employment or advanced training in the commercial and general aviation industry.  Instruction is designed to prepare students for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) license examinations for Airframe ratings.  Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 147 identifies minimum requirements for the certification and operation of an AMTS. The regulation includes both the curriculum requirements and the operating rules for all certificated AMTSs. The knowledge, skills, and abilities required of mechanics are considerable and demand high-quality training. Therefore, the FAA requires high standards from the AMTS.

The Aircraft Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Technician profession offers a vast array of career opportunities ranging from general aviation to commercial aviation, from aircraft or component manufacturers to aircraft repair, and overhaul at both domestic and foreign fixed base operations. Aviation Maintenance Technology consists of two programs with one common core and two additional occupational completion points (per program), and is designed to train students in the skills, knowledge, and related abilities necessary for entry into the aviation maintenance profession. The student will be prepared for the Federal Aviation Administration Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Certification.

STUDENTS WISHING TO CONTINUE TO THE AVIATION AIRFRAME MECHANIC PROGRAM WILL NEED TO ENROLL FOR ANOTHER 810 HOURS AT A TUITION RATE  OF $2,365.20 PLUS REGISTRATION/FACILITY USAGE ($150.00), MISCELLAENOUS FEES ($130.00), AND LAB FEES ($300.00) AND THE AIRFRAME TEXTBOOK KIT ($147.01) FOR A TOTAL OF: $3,092.21.
