Aviation Maintenance

Aviation Maintenance Technology Programs (Part 147)

UAA's Aviation Maintenance Technology program is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as an aviation maintenance technician school under FAR Part 147.  Graduates from the airframe and powerplant programs are prepared to take FAA exams to become certificated aircraft mechanics and to begin careers as aviation maintenance professionals in general, corporate, or airlines settings, as well as positions with aerospace manufacturing.  


Mechanic Helper Education Program (MHEP)

In coordination with the Alaska Air Carries Association, UAA has developed an online program designed to assist in gaining knowledge required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to successfully complete the testing to earn an FAA mechanic certificate with an airframe or powerplant rating.  This program is separate from the Part 147 aviation maintenance technician school, and is designed as a resource for individuals working toward FAA certification through on-the-job training.
