What Do Aviation Maintenance Technicians Do?

Aviation maintenance technicians will check and troubleshoot aircraft equipment on a regular basis, looking for parts that may need to be repaired or replaced. Some of the components you would work on include brakes, wheels, electrical systems, and wings.

During inspections, aviation maintenance technicians are required to use diagnostic procedures approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). They complete inspections, perform scheduled maintenance, and make any necessary repairs according to FAA regulations.Graduates of PIA’s Youngstown campus are equipped with a unique skill set, qualifying them for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airframe & Powerplant certification.  With the certification in hand, our graduates are prepared and ready to enter the exciting aviation maintenance industry!

Many technicians specialize in preventive maintenance. A day in the life of an aviation technician could include working on the items below:

  • Turbine Engines
  • Reciprocating Engines
  • Metallic Structures
  • Ignitions Systems
  • Hydraulics & Pneumatics
  • Composite Materials
  • Welding
  • And more

Over the years, PIA graduates have proven their versatility by entering into positions as technicians for regional and major airlines, aircraft production and maintenance facilities, amusement parks, automated production facilities, government contractors, petrochemical manufacturing plants, telecommunication systems providers, specialty metal manufacturers, and research and development centers – just to name a few.

In 2017, all of PIA’s campuses were selected by Delta Airlines as partner schools.
