Aircraft Structural Repair


Learn basic skills in structural repair of aircraft in this specialized, industry-driven program. Students get detailed training on how to inspect, assemble and repair sheet metal and composite structures. This training also incorporates key components from the Aircraft General and Aircraft Airframe mechanics certificates.

Aviation Structural Repair does not fall under FAA Part 147 guidelines. Rather, it is a specialty industry-directed curriculum that prepares students to perform heavy structural repairs that exceed the requirements of Part 147 Airframe and Powerplant training.
