The best way to jumpstart your career in one of Alabama’s hottest career fields, and earn nearly $30 an hour, is in the hands-on classrooms of Alabama Aviation College. With two-year campuses in Ozark, and Andalusia, you’ll learn from experienced aviation professionals and choose from programs in aircraft maintenance and avionics technology, gaining skills that transfer directly to the automotive, machinery and machine industries.
High school students can get a head start on aviation maintenance programs by taking dual enrollment programs offered by Enterprise State Community College. Sophomores, juniors and seniors can take Aviation Maintenance Technology programs through ESCC and earn both high school and college credit. Students who begin taking courses in their sophomore year can be very close to completing the program by the time they leave high school. Workforce development grant money may even pay the cost of their tuition.
