Aviation Maintenance Technology
Every year, approximately 2 billion people worldwide take to the skies in a sleek jumbo jet, helicopter, or even a small private plane. Qualified, licensed aviation maintenance technicians make it possible. These aviation maintenance technicians help keep America moving millions of passengers, tons of cargo, and even the mail!
