Why Aviation Electronics at PIA?
As technology advances, the magnitude of electronics within aviation is ever growing. This progress increases the need for qualified "avionics" technicians to inspect, troubleshoot, and repair the necessary equipment that ensures the safety of millions of people each year.
PIA "aviation electronics" technicians must be able to isolate malfunctions and make necessary equipment changes to radios, navigation systems, radar, flight computers, and many more sophisticated electronics.
The AET program leads to the FCC General Radiotelephone Operator's License (GROL) and is also accredited by National Center for Aerospace & Transportation Training (NCATT).
