Why choose Aviation Technology?
The Aviation Technology Certificate Program prepares students for professional careers in aviation maintenance, allowing graduates to seek employment with airlines, fixed base operators, or aircraft manufacturers. Nashua Community College is an FAA approved training facility. (NSUT025K)
Students will learn on actual aircraft, structures, and powerplants and related systems. The curriculum includes one summer session and covers a wide variety of subjects concerned with airplanes including reciprocating engines, turbines, fuel systems, propellers, ignition, electrical systems, and hydraulic systems. Interested students should note that the program requires frequent reading, along with the ability to interpret FAA regulations and manufacturers’ technical specifications.
Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to apply for the FAA oral, written, and practical exams for the Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Technician Certificate.
