George T. Baker Aviation School
George T. Baker Aviation School is located in Miami. The school is a public, tax-supported institution authorized by the Florida Department of Education and operated by the Miami-Dade County Public School System. It is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE) and the National Center for Aircraft Technician Training (NCATT) and is certificated by the FAA under Part 147 of the FAR Certificate # CT9T072R.
It offers instruction in aerospace technology, electronics, avionics, and aircraft maintenance (airframe and powerplant). Both high school and adult students, upon completion of their respective course of study, may receive certificates issued from NCATT, FCC, and the FAA. It is only one of two schools in Florida to be accredited by NCATT and the only school in the country to offer NCATT accredited courses to high school students.
The aviation program was started in 1939 at Miami Senior High School. In 1942 the program moved into the unfinished Roosevelt Hotel. In 1943 the building became known as the Technical High School and several other programs moved into the facility. In 1947 the building was renamed the Lindsey Hopkins Education Center. Classes were held there until 1958 when the aviation program moved into its present quarters adjacent to Miami International Airport. In 1961 the building was dedicated as George T. Baker Aviation Maintenance Technician School to honor Baker who, until his death, had been president of National Airlines, and had donated the land to the school board of Miami-Dade County.
