Aviation Maintenance Technology (Tulsa)

Come Train at Spartan College!

Spartan’s FAA approved Aviation Maintenance Technology Program has been training skilled aviation technicians for more than 90 years. Our aviation maintenance training courses can help prepare you for the Airframe & Powerplant certification by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The importance of aircraft maintenance cannot be denied. Aviation maintenance technicians are the highly-skilled, detail-oriented individuals who keep the airways safe and the planes flying. For every one hundred hours that an aircraft is used, they are 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.

Aviation Maintenance Technology

Our aviation maintenance technology program includes a diploma program that can be completed in 15 months and an Associate of Applied Science degree that can be achieved in as little as 18 months.  Spartan offers a hybrid option where the first portion of the program is offered online and only requires the student to spend 7 months in Tulsa for the on-ground, hands-on training portion.  The total length of this option is 20 months for diploma and 23 months for the associate’s degree.

Previous experience is not required, as our aviation maintenance technology programs can provide training in everything from changing a tire to rebuilding a turbine engine. You can also learn about all types of aircraft, from a small engine plane to a large transport plane like those used by major airlines. Students in our aviation maintenance program will study a variety of subjects, such as:

  • Hydraulics and Pneumatics
  • Ignition and Electrical Systems
  • Fuel Systems
  • Pressurization
  • Aircraft Welding
  • Turbine-prop and Jet Engines

Training in our airplane maintenance program not only teaches the skills needed to become an aviation maintenance technician, but it can also help you develop a versatile skill set that is desired in other industries, such as automotive and diesel, heavy equipment, power and light, and industrial technology.

A&P Certification Options

An Airframe & Powerplant Certification, also known as the A&P Certification, is an optional certification for those who inspect, maintain, and repair aircraft. In Spartan’s aviation maintenance technology program, Spartan provides you with the hands-on aviation maintenance training and knowledge needed for your FAA A&P Certification, and the skills required for aircraft mechanics.

If you’re searching for aviation maintenance schools that provide instruction and training for certifications, you can find it here. Spartan has instructors in the aviation maintenance training program who can help prepare you for optional exams by the FAA for A&P certification. We also offer many other professional certification exams through our testing system operated on our campus.
