Aviation Schools

When in comes to careers in aviation, there are plenty of different options to consider. Some avionics schools offer 4 year programs while others offer 2 year programs of study. Many are degree based but it may depend on the career field.


If you interested in the technical side of aviation then you will likely need specialized career training to help you reach your goals.





It is important to learn about all the different school programs and compare the time it takes to complete training, how much it will cost you, and what you will have once you have finished. For example will you have an avionics degree, a diploma, or some form of a certification? If it is a degree, is it a bachelors degree, an associate degree, or a masters degree. If it is a certificate, what can you do with it? Will you need to take and complete some testing in order to be certified before you are able to begin working in an entry level position?



These are some of the types of questions you should be considering in your search to find an avionics school. Your best bet may be to contact all schools of interest to learn exactly what types of programs they do offer and then compare those to your own goals to help you make an informed decision.

Depending on your career goals and time frame you may be able to complete your education in four years or less. Some aircraft related trade schools offer two year or less programs. Check with all schools to interest to learn why types of programs they offer.



Avionics training is offered at multiple school and college campuses across the United States. Finding one that is right for you may take some time and doing your homework. Just because one may not be located near by does not mean you should rule it out. This is your career so it may make sense to live out of state or in a different city while you complete your education.



Generally speaking if you are interested in becoming an avionics technician you will learn many different things such as how to maintain, calibrate, and install different on board avionic systems. What types of systems do technicians learn how to install? These may include electronic systems, hydraulics, autopilot, radar, and navigation and communication systems. Looking at this it is probably fairly obvious that electronics and aviation go hand in hand. So if you have an interest in electronics and airplanes this could very well be your career calling!



As part of your training, including hands on training, you will likely learn many specialized skills in addition to theory. Some of these skills may include troubleshooting skills such as diagnostics and circuits tracing. You will also likely learn about component replacement. You can also expect to learn how to read electronics diagrams that may be either simple or complex. These are just some of the types of things you may learn from programs in avionics schools. What you will learn specifically will depend on the program you choose. When deciding on a school it would be wise to ensure that is an accredited avionics program. Some common programs that may be considered hot are those in aircraft and avionics equipment mechanics or service technicians.
