Avionics Flightline Maintenance
Aviation electronics, or Avionics, focuses on the application of electronics to aviation. Avionics technicians troubleshoot, maintain and install systems connected to navigation, communication and other critical electrical, electronic, and ancillary systems needed to keep aircraft flying. The first portion of this two-year program focuses on basic electronic components, systems and basic aircraft theory, and all the training required by the FAA to obtain an Airframe rating under FAR Parts 65 & 147. The second year focuses on advanced electronic theory and testing of avionics systems on aircraft and in the lab, culminating with on-site Federal Communications Commission (FCC) licensing preparation and testing.
We believe our program is one of the best in the region. Students leave our classrooms prepared and they get hired. More than 90 percent have a job waiting for them after completing their coursework. Lansing Community College has much to offer aviation electronics students from our outstanding instructional staff to our electronics lab to our modern aircraft test equipment in use in today's aviation environment, providing students with a valuable mix of theory and practical, hands-on learning experiences. Our classrooms and laboratories are located in Lansing, Michigan at Capital City Airport, providing our students maximum exposure to the aviation environment. Both an associate degree in applied science and a certificate of completion (designed for students who already have an Airframe and/or Powerplant rating) are available.
