High school students in this major will take coursework to work towards the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) certification. Students will learn to perform maintenance, preventative maintenance, and alterations of aircraft and aircraft systems. The AMF major consists of all FAA-approved part 147 General curriculum as well as courses in sheet-metal, non-metallic structures, and welding. In addition to aircraft maintenance and repair, students will be exposed to other Oklahoma aerospace industries that could include flight, aircraft manufacturing, accident investigation and safety, as well as military aerospace occupational specialties. The AMF Capstone will allow students to apply their gained knowledge of aviation and flight principles by introducing students to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). There will need to be a continuation of study in order to become AMT certified.
