Aviation maintenance technicians including airframe and Powerplant technicians, avionics technicians, and instrument repairmen have an important responsibility of keeping airplanes operating safely and efficiently. To this end, they service, repair, and overhaul aircraft components and systems including airframes, engines, electrical and hydraulic systems, propellers, avionics equipment, and aircraft instruments.
FAA certification is the key to advancement in this field since apprentice mechanics can work only under the supervision of a certified mechanic. An applicant who is a graduate of an approved aviation maintenance technician course, is eligible for the FAA Mechanic Certificate with an A & P rating. Apprentice mechanics with 18 months of airframe experience or Powerplant experience or 30 months of combined experience may take the airframe, Powerplant, or the airframe and Powerplant exams.
The program covers Communication and Navigation Systems, Radar, GPS, Auto pilots and Helicopter automatic flight control systems , fiber optics and satellite systems currently in use. This will be taught in an office airport facility but with-in 500 feet of our current airport facility. It will taught by Mr. Jason, one of our past graduates who is A&P certified, Avionics and radar certified also. This will be the only avionics school to be offered in New England
Local Business man and aviation enthusiast Dennis Demers has donated a very unique aircraft to the Burlington Technical Center Aviation Technology program. It is designated as a SUPER Fouga Jet and is the only aircraft of it's type in the world equipped with two 2800 pound thrust engines.
