* Ensure that aircraft carrying hundreds of passengers are safe for flying each day
* Repair and maintain jets, working with your hands in a non-office environment
* Inspect aviation components for problems
* Test all repairs to ensure the aircraft is safe
* Listen to descriptions of aircraft problems, then find their cause and fix them professionally

Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Program Courses include:

* Aviation Science
* Aircraft Electricity
* Aviation Maintenance
* Aircraft Systems
* Reciprocating Engines
* Turbine Engine Theory & Operation
* Propeller Systems

We make sure our curriculum trains you with the skills that the industry looks for when hiring employees. Redstone uses advisory boards with representatives from major airlines, aircraft manufacturers and aircraft and powerplant maintenance companies to develop their curriculum and to stay current with the latest industry needs. Aircraft mechanics require technical education and practice which is what Redstone's curriculum will provide you.
Advanced Electronic Technology (Avionics) Program
Redstone's Avionics courses help students get entry-level positions in the aviation industry and also help prepare them to take the FCC certification exam in under 18 months. The Avionics program has instructors with industry expertise, experience and connections, which is instrumental in preparing you to make a secure living doing aircraft avionics. Many of the hands-on Advanced Electronics Technology (Avionics) classes take place in a simulated work environment using industry-standard tools and equipment found on the job. Redstone's practical, interesting and engaging program includes:

* 50% hands-on lab training
* Utilizing equipment relevant to today's aircraft
* Focus on a critical skill: troubleshooting
* Prepare yourself for a range of career options
* Transfer these skills to non-aircraft systems

Our Advanced Electronics Technology (Avionics) program covers basic electronics theory. From there you will advance to a hands-on focus on Avionics Systems. It includes 2,100 hours of classroom and laboratory training in aircraft avionics, teaching you how to troubleshoot and repair communications systems, navigation systems, autopilot, collision avoidance systems, and more.

Advanced Electronic Technology (Avionics) Program Courses include:
