Presentation Transcript

The purpose of the Aviation Maintenance Technician Program at Miramar is to train technicians to perform all levels of maintenance and inspections on our nation’s aircraft.

  • Objectives and standards for the Program are set by Federal Regulations administered by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Completion of the Program allows the student to take the written and oral/practical tests for an FAA Mechanic’s Certificate with an Airframe and Powerplant Rating.

  • The Program is 1900 hours long and results in 78 units of College credit, along with a Certificate of Completion from the College.
  • The student can also receive an Associate of Science Degree with an additional 18 units of General Education courses.

The Program is broken into three major sections:

    • General
    • Airframe
    • Powerplant
  • Each section is further broken into individual subject classes
    • This allows students the flexibility to adjust their courseload to fit their time requirements.

Full-time students are placed on a track, beginning with the General section.

  • After completing the General classes the student will enter into either the Airframe or the Powerplant track.
    • Once the classes on that track are completed the student will register for classes in the remaining track.
  • Classes are given both day and night in order to accommodate students’ schedules.
  • Courses in the General section of the Program focus on entry-level skills, such as hardware familiarization, safetying, weight and balance calculations, and precision measuring.
  • Students learn about flight theory and terminology, control surface functions, and aircraft structures.
  • D.C. electrical circuitry and fire protection circuitry are also taught here.
  • Airframe classes include sheet metal fabrication, working with fabric and composite materials, and aircraft rigging.
  • Airframe systems such as hydraulics, landing gear, cabin atmosphere, and electrical are also taught in this section.
  • The powerplant section is devoted to engines and their support systems.
  • Theory and application for both reciprocating piston engines and turbine engines are covered in this section.
  • Support systems covered include induction and fuel metering, ignition and starting, batteries, and propellers, along with lubrication, cooling, and exhaust.
