LEARN MORE about the field of Aviation Technology - Opportunities, Training Needed and Pay

Upon qualifying by written, oral, and practical examination, students are issued Federal Aviation Administration licenses. 

The WLAC Aviation Maintenance Training Program was founded in 1974. This dynamic program is conducted in the most up-to-date facilities available for college aviation training in the region, if not the country. Graduates of the WLAC Airframe and Power Plant Programs have achieved their FAA license certification and successfully garnered high paying, professional aviation maintenance jobs with all levels of airlines and independent companies providing contract maintenance.

Currently, all course are offered in the evening only. The Aircraft Maintenance Program is a continuing program with classes during the Spring and Fall semesters and during summer sessions, as available. Courses are conducted in a nine-week format. Aviation Maintenance Technician Classes 1-24 must be completed with a grade of C or better.

 

NOTE: For an interim period and to effectively use the time and space, during the day, a film production crafts program shares part of the aviation facilities.
