Aircraft Mechanic Course

Hands-On Training.

Once you have passed your written test, you will go to our "Hands-On Lab" where an instructor will work with you one-on-one. Your instructor will evaluate your experience and determine your needs and then concentrate on any weak areas.

You will be performing many of the same task and using the same tools and test equipment you will find at the DME's Practical Examination. Your instructor will enlighten you on what to expect the day of your examination.

Be sure to ask questions and take notes, we want you to feel confident in all test areas before completing our course.
