Aviation Mechanics Needed

Although the demand for pilots receives much media attention, the demand for aviation mechanics is just as real. The Aviation Technology Education Council’s Pipeline Report predicts a shortfall of 79,000 mechanics in the U.S. over the next twenty years. This situation will clearly enhance the earnings, benefits, and career choices for aviation mechanics. 

EMU A&P Apprenticeship Program

In EMU’s Aircraft Maintenance Program, you will prepare to test for the FAA Mechanic Certificate, with Airframe and Powerplant Ratings (A&P), under the apprenticeship model. The FAA requires 4,800 hours of apprenticeship, and at EMU you can accomplish this full-time, year-round, in thirty-two months. EMU’s A&P training is accomplished at Keller Brothers Airport, near Schaefferstown, in Lebanon County.

Our program is for you if:

  • You’re a recent high school graduate who wants to become a full-time professional mechanic
  • You’re a working adult seeking a new career
  • You’re pursuing a flying vocation in which an A&P Certificate is required or desired, such as in missions/humanitarian flying or corporate flying
