Men and women who have achieved the necessary aircraft skills through military experience are surprised to find that aircraft maintenance practices and procedures are different when working in the civilian world. When taking your oral and practical exam, the Designated Mechanic Examiner (DME) will expect you to be knowledgable and proficient in civilian airframe and powerplant techniques.
Each year the Aviation School of Excellence trains over one hundred students of which approximately 80% are active and retiring military personnel. You will find that our staff are experts in training the skills needed to pass your written test and oral and practical exams.
We find that many military aircraft technicians have very little or no reciprocating engine experience. At this school you will receive "hands-on" training with reciprocating engines from experienced A&Ps.
We take a great deal of pride in helping our military men and women pass their test and transition into the civilian aviation world.
