Airframe and Powerplant Curriculum

Our curriculum provides maximum flexibility for the student seeking certification for the FAA ratings. Students may work toward the powerplant certificate, the airframe certificate, or both. The general subjects are required prerequisites for any combination of certification. In all curriculum areas, the training given at the school exceeds the minimum requirements of the federal regulations. Training is a combination of classroom and shop work. The student is first instructed in the theory of the subject in the classroom and then applies the theory in an actual shop environment using real aircraft components and systems.

Graduates are provided certification granting eligibility for either the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airframe, Powerplant, or the combined Airframe and Powerplant ratings. TSA offers test preparation and refresher training to individuals already graduated from our program, but have not received their certificates from the school.
