Aviation Maintenance Technology (AVIAO.S.AAS)

  • Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
  • Department: Aviation Technology
This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science in Aviation Maintenance Technology and provides the knowledge and skills required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for certification as an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT). To become an AMT, two ratings are required, the Airframe (A) and the Powerplant (P); this is commonly referred to as an "A&P Certificate". Students will complete the requirements for Sinclair's General, Airframe and Powerplant Aviation Maintenance certificates and will refine the knowledge and skills they have learned with extensive hands-on training in the aviation maintenance lab. Students, having completed this course work, will be eligible to test for the FAA A&P Certificate. The graduate can either continue towards a bachelor's degree in aviation (or related field) or can begin a career as an AMT. Sinclair is an FAA-approved Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) under Part 147.
