Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Training Courses

Redstone College could be a great option if you are interested in taking the airframe and powerplant (A&P) exam. Redstone offers the training that can get you started towards a career in aviation and aircraft mechanics. This dynamic field requires training and practice.

We will also guide you in courses designed to ensure your success in A&P, such as:

  • Aviation Maintenance Practices
  • Hydraulics and Landing Gear
  • Aircraft Flight Control
  • Aviation Science

Once you've enrolled and paid your tuition you'll also receive an extensive tool kit. These tools are put to good use in our lab/shop and ramp areas that have several aircraft and airplanes for training purposes. Redstone has operational reciprocating engines and turbine engine run stands, all for you to take apart, inspect and reassemble. A Learjet 24D also serves as a training tool, giving students the chance to practice repairs and experience first-hand the mechanics of a legendary aircraft. Read more about this Learjet.

This Redstone program can also help you prepare for the FAA A&P certification exams so you can get your airframe and powerplant certification.* Additional information on A&P is available in our course catalog.

Why did you choose Redstone?
An admissions representative spoke at my high school about the Airframe and Powerplant program at Redstone College and I liked what I heard. Redstone's location was also a deciding factor in my decision to enroll.

How did your Redstone education and training prepare you for your current job?
Very well! All new A&P employees at [my firm] must complete a standardized training course, and I had no problems with that training given my A&P education at Redstone. I passed the FAA certification test on the very first try.*

What were the most positive aspects of attending Redstone College?
I enjoyed the hands on aspect of the A&P program. Also, the hours of the program were convenient as I worked about 35 hours per week while going to school.

How would you describe your overall experience at Redstone College?
Overall, my experience at Redstone College worked out very well for me. I keep in touch with some of my former classmates and work with other employees who graduated from Redstone.

Would you recommend Redstone College to other students?
Yes, I would.
