Spartan’s Aviation Maintenance Technology program has been training skilled aircraft technicians for more than 90 years and now, is bringing that long history to Riverside. Our aviation maintenance training courses are designed to help prepare you for the Airframe & Powerplant certification (A&P Certification) required by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The importance of aircraft maintenance cannot be denied. Students looking to join the AMT program should be highly-skilled, detail-oriented individuals who are prepared to keep the airways safe and the planes flying. For every one hundred hours that an aircraft is used for hire, it is required to be inspected based on standards established by the manufacturer and the FAA. There is also routine maintenance required for the life of the aircraft.

This aviation maintenance technology program provides a unique skill-set for Spartan’s graduates. According to the Boeing Pilot and Technician Outlook 2019-2038, 804,000 new civil aviation pilots and 769,000 new maintenance technicians will be needed to fly and maintain the world fleet over the next 20 years.*
