Aviation maintenance technicians keep aircrafts in safe flying condition by servicing, repairing, and overhauling aircraft components following stringent regulations set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). All aircrafts are required to undergo thorough inspections and repairs on a regular basis. These services are provided by technicians certified by the FAA. Technicians in this field work on aircraft components and systems including airframe, piston engines, turbine engines, hydraulic systems, propellers, rigging, warning systems, and environmental systems.

As global airways grow more congested, pilots must now rely more than ever on the integrity of aircraft navigation and communication systems to keep air travel safe. Advances in the electronics of traditional aircraft, expansion of airline fleets, and the emergence of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), have resulted in an increased demand for well-trained technicians with expertise in manufacturing, maintenance, repair, and installation of new and existing systems. Aviation electronics technicians play a key role in the development and deployment of satellites, spacecraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), helicopters, and aircrafts of all types and sizes.
