Advanced Aviation Maintenance

Military Aviation Mechanic

The Advanced Airframe and Powerplant Certificate is designed for those individuals who have met the requirement of Federal Aviation Regulation Part 65, Subpart D. The individual must have completed FAA Form 8610-2 in which block V has been signed by an FAA inspector, or must have a graduation certificate or certificate of completion from a certificated Aviation Maintenance Technician school, or a Military Certificate of Eligibility. This program will emphasize a combination of aircraft maintenance theory and application to help the individual gain a better understanding of requirements for holding a FAA Mechanic’s Certificate with an Airframe and Powerplant rating.

This certificate is for individuals who are qualified but have not earned their FAA Mechanic’s Certificate with an Airframe and Powerplant rating. At the end of each class the student will take the FAA written exam that goes along with that area (i.e. General, Airframe, or Powerplant) and that will count as their final exam for the class.

The cost of the exam is not part of the college’s tuition and fees for the class and must be paid separately. After successful completion of the program, students must still successfully take the Oral and Practical part of the FAA Mechanic’s test to earn their FAA Mechanic’s Certificate with Airframe and Powerplant rating. This cost for the Oral and Practical is not part of the cost of the program.
