Instructor: Robert Oakes
Students will receive hands-on training at Kalitta Maintenance Hanger (in Oscoda at the former Wurtsmith Airforce Base). Students will need to provide their own transportation to and from Kalitta. Students will be introduced to the basic theory of flight, aircraft construction, and maintenance. The course is designed to expose the student to the aircraft maintenance industry and requirements to become a licensed Airframes and Powerplant Mechanic. Students will participate in shop projects that involve all aspects of general aircraft structural, sheet metal, basic electricity, and turbine engine theory. Students leaving this course will have a detailed and comprehensive understanding of not only general aircraft maintenance, but the aircraft maintenance industry, related regulations, and job possibilities.
