Aviation Institute of Maintenance’s (AIM) Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando and Washington, D.C. Metro Area campuses are now enrolling for Aviation Maintenance Technical Engineer (AMTE). AIM’s AMTE program was created to support the industry growth as exhibited in Boeing’s Pilot & Technician Outlook 2019-2038. The report states that 769,000 new maintenance technicians are needed to maintain commercial aviation, business aviation, and civil helicopter industries over the next 20 years.

The Aviation Maintenance Technical Engineer program trains students on subjects ranging from the basic theories of flight to advanced electronic systems on modern aircraft. Their education includes both classroom instruction and hands-on experience in a wide range of subjects such as sheet metal and composite fabrication and repair, hydraulics, avionics and communications, piston and turbine engines, and other systems. AMTE graduates receive the entry-level skills to maintain and repair aircraft airframe, powerplant, and avionics systems.

The program prepares the graduate with the knowledge and skills required to pass the FAA tests and obtain a mechanic certificate with Airframe and Powerplant ratings. Graduates will also have prepared to take the Aircraft Electronics Technician’s certification and CertTEC exams. The AMTE graduate will then be prepared for a number of careers in the field of aviation, such as Aircraft Mechanic, Avionics Technician, Inspector, Installer, Parts Manager, and Service Technician. These career opportunities may be found throughout the U.S. and around the world.
