In a Word, Fantastic!
This unique airplane maintenance training program meets a critical need for highly skilled technicians in airframe and power plant repair and certification.
National, regional, and local airlines including Jet Blue, Cape Air, and the U.S. Coast Guard are providing strong support, and are waiting for graduates to start filling critical needs in numerous sectors of the aviation industry where major shortages of highly skilled technicians exist now, and are expected to continue for many years to come.
This program is one of the few training centers on the Eastern Seaboard supporting the airline industry and only the second in Massachusetts offering certification in both Airframe Structures and Power Plant Theory and Maintenance. This program creates a pathway for a career with significant advancement potential. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2012 certified aircraft mechanics earned a mean salary of $55,690 per year, with typical salaries running between $45,670 and $65,750, and those numbers have continued to rise.
