Aviation Maintenance Technology

Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) is certified and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for Airframe and Powerplant training. Courses are offered at the AMT campus located on the northeast corner of the Shawnee Municipal Airport. Aviation Maintenance Technicians service, repair, and overhaul various components and systems including electrical and hydraulic systems, reciprocating and turbine engine systems, propellers, and fuel systems. AMT students also perform sheet metal structural repairs, and composite structural repairs. AMT students perform non-destructive testing of magnetic and non-magnetic metals and composite structures. The goal of the AMT program is to provide students with theory, shop practice, and practical experience necessary to become professional Airframe and Powerplant mechanics.

An FAA-authorized, PSI CATS Computer Testing Center is located at the Gordon Cooper AMT campus. FAA exams are administered in the testing center.
