This one- or two-year program targets students interested in careers in aviation maintenance, professional piloting, air traffic control, or aeronautical engineering. It introduces students to the knowledge and skills required in the field of aviation maintenance technology, while also highlighting skills required for a variety of airport related career opportunities. Students enrolled in this program attend classes off-site at Kent Aviation Center. Students start and taxi single engine aircraft. They learn how to start and operate an Allison 250 turbine engine. They disassemble, inspect, reassemble and operational-check aircraft components. The learning environment reflects a real workplace similar to the one students will encounter during a career in aviation maintenance, including working on several operational aircraft in KAC’s 20,000 square foot hangar.
