Leading Aviation Schools Expand Avionics Program

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (8/11/08) – Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM), the national’s largest family of aviation maintenance schools, is taking another step forward in aviation technology training. AIM is expanding their avionics program. This five-month program, designed to train students for a fast-paced career in avionics, is now offered at five of their nine campuses, including Atlanta, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Chesapeake and Manassas, Virginia. “Avionics is the future of aviation maintenance,” says David Jones, Director of Education for AIM. “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 the 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 Jones. This training could lead to a long and lucrative career.

Through AIM’s FAA-approved program, students prepare for a high-flying career in aviation maintenance. Students learn the skills necessary to become successful in one of the world’s fastest growing industries, aviation maintenance. AIM graduates are there to meet the increasing global demands of commercial, cargo, corporate and private aviation employers. AIM’s campuses are located in Atlanta; Chesapeake, Virginia; Dallas; Houston; Indianapolis; Kansas City, Missouri; Manassas, Virginia; Orlando and Philadelphia.

Registration is going on now. Classes begin soon. To schedule a tour of one of our AIM campuses, or for more information about our new Avionics Technician Program, call 1 (888) 349-5387 or visit us on the web at www.aviationmaintenance.edu.
