Aviation Technologies Academy
The Aviation Maintenance program teaches the maintenance and repair of aircraft mechanical systems. Students are prepared for highly technical jobs in aviation mechanics. Students are guided through hands-on training by experienced instructors who ensure students are job-ready. ALA-AT offers testing for industry certification with the Federal Aviation Administration. This is a four-year program.
In the ground portion of flight school, students can earn their FAA private pilot certificate in a single-engine aircraft. Students will also be eligible for certification for a remote pilot's license with UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).
Those who dream of hitting the skies can do so for a living, whether it be in the pilot’s seat or on the ground. Careers in aviation offer many opportunities for advancement in piloting, engineering and mechanics, airport operations, and aircraft manufacturing.
Many aviation and aerospace manufacturing companies hire technicians and engineers to perform repairs and maintenance services on various types of aircraft before they are sold. Others may need technicians to perform tests and develop new elements for various aircraft. Those with a strong background and a degree in mathematics, science, or industrial engineering may fare particularly well in aviation.
