A&P Certificate Apprenticeship Program
The FAA Mechanic Certificate, with Airframe and Powerplant Ratings, or A&P, is your ticket to a respected, good-paying job in the aviation industry! According to CareerExplorer, in Pennsylvania the average annual salary for an aviation mechanic is $58,000 and the top 20% earn $98,000.
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.
