Maintenance Training for Unmanned Aircraft Systems

NCTC will offer training to become a UAS qualified maintenance technician beginning in the spring of 2011.

I asked Fletcher what advice he has for other aviation maintenance schools and he offered the following, “We are living in changing times so set your school and your students up for future success by considering different or multiple career paths.” As an example, he goes on to mention that aviation, UAS, and even the wind turbine industry all have similarities with cross-over skills.

It’s apparent from my visit that there is a lot of excitement surrounding the UAS program. The emerging UAS segment is interesting and I anxiously await my next visit to the NCTC UAS Maintenance Center. AMT
