Aviation Maintenance Technologies
|Beginning Fall 2013 Semester, the Aviation Maintenance Program will be relocating to LCC's Mason Jewett Field Hangar. This move will affect all Aviation Maintenance faculty, staff and students.|
The Aviation Maintenance Program consists of two areas of study: Airframe Maintenance and Power Plant Maintenance
Aviation Airframe Maintenance
Airframe maintenance takes students through a series of course
with emphasis on the structural integrity of aircraft. Students will be exposed
to coursework that will give them hands-on experience performing a variety of
repairs and alterations to sheet metal and composite aircraft structures.
Coursework includes a series of classes on topics as
aircraft structures, fuel systems and general aviation classes as well as a
class on aircraft welding.
As in all of our programs, students receive quality training
from instructors who are committed to student success in the classroom and
career success. Students learn in a practical, hands-on atmosphere simulating
the industry by ensuring that an average of 50 percent of the total program time
is spent in labs on real-world applications. The associate degree program takes
two years to complete.

Aviation Power Plant Maintenance
Similar to automotive mechanics, aviation maintenance
technicians, or aircraft mechanics work on aircraft engine components, doing
their part as members of the aviation industry to keep aircraft flying safely.
They perform scheduled maintenance, repairs and inspections. As with all members
of the industry, aviation mechanics operate under guidelines enforces by the
FAA. At LCC, students in the Aviation Maintenance Program received hands-on
experience performing maintenance on many different types of aircraft. From
engines and landing gear to brakes and air conditioning systems, aircraft
mechanics are responsible for keeping components in tact.
Students receive quality training from instructors who are committed to student success in the classroom and career success. Students learn in a practical, hands-on atmosphere simulating the industry by ensuring that an average of 50 percent of the total program time is spent in labs on real-world applications. The program takes two years to complete, after which students become qualified to take the Federal Aviation Administration Aviation Maintenance Technician license. An additional semester of general education core subjects is required to earn the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Aviation Maintenance.
