Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) mechanics are trained to perform maintenance and alterations on different types of aircraft. They’re able to work on most parts of an aircraft, including brakes, landing gear, engines and air-conditioning systems. In short, their job is to ensure the aircraft they maintain are in proper condition to fly.
The length of time it takes to become an airframe and powerplant technician can vary. At MIAT, you can train in just 20 months. You’ll graduate prepared to test for industry certifications and apply for entry-level roles.1
Typically, an airframe technician only works on the airframe of aircraft, not the propellers or engine. Powerplant technicians can work on the engine. UTI’s A&P program includes both airframe and powerplant courses, which means you’ll be trained to work on most parts of a plane.
