New River CTC is developing a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified Aircraft Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) with an Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) rating. The program will support manufacturing and innovation initiatives by working with the Raleigh County Memorial Airport and the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority.
Certificated A&P Mechanics perform a variety of tasks related to the inspection, maintenance, and repair of aircraft. These tasks include inspecting mechanical and structural components of an aircraft, performing routine maintenance on aircraft engines, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, electrical systems, electronic systems. The program will focus on fixed-wing aircraft.
