About Adult Students Programs

WHAT DO AVIATION MECHANICS DO?

Aviation mechanics holding an FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Certificate play an important role in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of airplanes and helicopters. They service; maintain, repair, and overhaul aircraft, to include aircraft systems such as engines, propellers, landing gear, hydraulics, electrical, oxygen, flight controls, and airframes.

WHO HIRES AVIATION MECHANICS?

Commercial airline companies and fixed-base airport operators are major employers of A&P licensed mechanics throughout the United States and overseas. General aviation employs thousands of mechanics working in such diverse fields as privately owned aircraft, aircraft overhaul facilities, air taxi operations, FAA certified repair stations, crop dusting, corporate aircraft, and aircraft manufacturers. All of the military services also employ civilian aircraft mechanics at various installations around the country and overseas.

HOW WELL ARE A&P MECHANICS PAID?

Major airlines generally pay between $11 and $16 an hour as entry-level wages. Within five years, an A&P mechanic can earn between $35,000 and $45,000 per year. Starting pay in general aviation ranges between $7 to $10 an hour.
