Do you like working with your hands? Are you mechanically inclined? We have the perfect career for you:
Aviation Maintenance, and it starts right here at Haney Aviation Academy!

Haney is an FAA certified, CFR Part 147 Aviation Maintenance Technician School. Our programs prepare students for certification by the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA). The FAA Airframe and Powerplant (A & P) Certification is required to perform maintenance and repairs on small aircraft, as well as the largest jet airplanes. Haney offers these programs at an affordable cost, typically much less than other schools.  Most programs qualify for PELL and VA Benefits so when you leave you are not financially in debt but ready to go to work.

 Haney Aviation Academy is an endeavor into the actual world of aviation where the students will:

  • Study in a facility thoroughly equipped for practical "hands on" training
  • Be exposed to a variety of theory and shop classes, such as: metal work, woodwork, welding, hydraulics, electrical, electronics, painting, and engine overhaul (turbine and reciprocating)
  • Become proficient in multiple skilled trade areas
  • Learn to interpret FAA regulations and manufacturers' technical specifications

Upon completion of the Aviation Maintenance Technology program and FAA certifications, one would be qualified for the following positions:

  • Aircraft Maintenance Mechanic
  • Airframe Maintenance Mechanic
  • Powerplant Maintenance Mechanic
  • Aircraft Sheet Metal Mechanic
  • Helicopter Mechanic

In these positions, you will work in hangar, out on the field on the “flight lines” where aircraft park or in repair stations. You will use hand tools as well as sophisticated test equipment. Sometimes your work will require physical activities like climbing ladders, crawling, and some lifting. You may work under deadlines to make sure an airplane is air-worthy.

Both Aviation Airframe Mechanics (Airframe) and Aviation Powerplant Mechanics (Powerplant) begin with the same core course, Aviation Maintenance General Technician "General" (AMT0705 - 450 hours, approximately one term for full-time enrollment). Upon successful completion of the "General" course, students choose whether to complete the next two courses in Aviation Airframe Mechanics or Aviation Powerplant Mechanics. The "General" course is required for both the Airframe and Powerplant programs. Once the "General" course is successfully completed in one program, it does not need to be completed again.
