About the Program
This program, also known as the FAA General, is a highly technical and multidisciplinary curriculum that teaches students not only how aircraft work but how to troubleshoot, inspect and maintain those aircraft.
Units include everything from the basics like math and physics to more aviation-specific subjects like corrosion control, aircraft hardware, flight surfaces, as well as FAA rules and regulations. We blend classroom theory with plenty of hands-on practical experience in order to prepare our students for a future in aviation.
Students disassemble and reassemble piston and turbine engines, learn about hand tools and how to properly use them, learn to weld, and even how to run an aircraft on the ground.Airframe & Powerplant (A&P); College credits available: Aviation related colleges may award (up to 67) college credits to students earning their Airframe & Powerplant License (A&P); National Technical Honor Society, SkillsUSA High School credits available include: Year 1- 3 Elective Credits Year 2 - 1 Elective Credits, 1.0 Science Credit and 1.0 Math Credit
