AIM Announces New Avionics Technician Program

Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) is taking another step forward providing the latest in aviation technology training. AIM is pleased to announce the addition of a new Avionics Technician Program at its Atlanta, GA, campus. This five-month, 24-credit hour program is designed to train students for a fast-paced career in avionics. This field includes repairing and maintaining aircraft electricity and aviation electronics systems.

"Avionics is the future of aviation maintenenace," says School Director Reggie Baker. "As aircraft become more computerized, it is essential that A&P mechanics master avionics. AIM is dedicated to providing our students with the most advanced skills in the aviation industry."

AIM's Avionics Technician Program combines classroom learning with practical application in the hangar. Students will learn how to fix and maintain the electronic side of modern aircraft systems. The program also prepares students to take Federal Communications Commission (FCC) licensing exam. Upon graduation, our Avionics Technicians will be qualified for an entry-level position in the exciting field of avionics and electronics.

"While an avionics certification is not yet an FAA requirement, it most likely will become one," says Baker. This training could lead to a long and lucrative career. According to the U.S. Labor Department, the average national salary for an avionics technician is $46,630 a year.* The Bureau also states, "Opportunities for aircraft and avionics equipment mechanics and service technicians should be excellent for those who have completed aircraft mechanic training programs."**

AIM has been ensuring the future of the aviation indutry for more than a decade. AIM is a FAA-licensed institution headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA. AIM has eight campuses nationwide including Atlanta, GA; Indianapolis, IN; Kansas City, MO; Manassas, VA; Philadelphia, PA; Virginia Beach, VA; Dallas, TX; and Orlando, FL, as well as a broad national and international recruiting program.
