How I got my A&P (airframe & powerplant) Certificate | SciWorx Technology

Here I get into why the Baker’s School Of Aeronautics is the absolute best choice for people to prepare to complete their FAA Airframe & Powerplant Certification. I could not have done it without them.

This is not a paid endorsement nor was it solicited by the Baker’s School. In fact, I plan to give them more money in 2021 to complete my IA.

Thanks to all my Patreon supporters! You make all of this possible.

BAKER’S SCHOOL OF AERONAUTICS is located just 20 miles east of the Nashville International Airport. Our beautiful new facility is adjacent to the Lebanon Municipal Airport (M54) in Lebanon, Tennessee at 100 Glidepath Way. We are right off of I-40 and only a mile from TN 840, which connects to I-24 and I-65. Lebanon is a beautiful small town with many hotels, shops and restaurants, that will guarantee our students a great place to stay while in school. BAKER’S SCHOOL is designed to prepare the aviation mechanic for your F.A.A. writtens, oral and practical examinations. In addition, we offer a five day preparation course for the certified A&P mechanic wishing to obtain your Inspection Authorization rating.

Airframe & Powerplant
Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) is a tradesperson and also refers to a licensed technical qualification for carrying out aircraft maintenance. AMTs inspect and perform or supervise maintenance, preventive maintenance, repairs and alteration of aircraft and aircraft systems.

In the US, for a person who holds a mechanic certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, the rules for certification, and for certificate-holders, are detailed in Subpart D of Part 65 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs), which are part of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The US licensed qualification is sometimes referred to by the FAA as the Aviation Maintenance Technician and is commonly referred to as the Airframe and Powerplant (A&P).

The general requirement for eligibility for a mechanic certificate include the following. The candidate must:

Be 18 or older
Be able to read, speak, and understand English fluently;
Meet the experience or educational requirement; and
Pass a set of required tests within a maximum of 24 months.

The required tests include a set of knowledge tests, followed by a practical test, which includes an oral examination component, and which is administered by a Designated Mechanic Examiner (DME).

A person who fulfills the necessary requirements is issued a mechanic certificate with either an airframe or powerplant rating, or both. These ratings together account for the common practice of referring to mechanics as “A&Ps.” Until 1952, instead of the Powerplant rating, an Engine rating was issued, so the abbreviation “A&E” may appear in older documents.

Eligibility for the mechanic tests depends on the applicant’s ability to document their knowledge of required subject matter and ability to perform maintenance tasks. The FAA recognizes two ways of demonstrating the needed knowledge and skills: practical experience or completion of a training program at a school certificated under Part 147 of the FARs.

Applicants for a mechanic certificate with a single rating—either Airframe or Powerplant—and who base their application on practical experience must demonstrate 18 months of work experience applicable to the chosen rating. Those applying for both ratings must show a total of 30 months of applicable experience. Many military-trained aircraft mechanics are eligible to use their work experience as the basis for an application for a civilian mechanic certificate.
