Aircraft Maintenance Technician

Montpellier, France

Full Time

50 Weeks


An aircraft maintenance technician is crucial to the continuity of safe travel and the prosperity of the aviation industry. It is the technician who is responsible for performing the necessary inspections and repairs of any aircraft awaiting its journey on the runway. No flight can begin its voyage without the approval of the technician.

The Aircraft Maintenance Training begins at Airways Aviation– ESMA with an Aircraft Maintenance Professional A-Level (with an option for cell system or avionic).
Students may also follow an Aircraft Maintenance HND to acquire the skills of Senior Aircraft Maintenance Technician. Other training programs deliver more qualifications as the Part-66 Aircraft Maintenance Personnel Licensing or the Aircraft Maintenance Complementary Mention and give technicians the opportunity to gain responsibilities in their daily work.

Airways Aviation is a vocational training center dedicated to Aircraft Maintenance Professional A-Level. Students can choose between an apprenticeship or an initial program. By choosing an apprenticeship, students must find a company where they will work 5 weeks alternated with 5 months of course at our academy.

At Airways Aviation – ESMA, courses are completed by practical exercises realized within the workshop where students practice the technical documentation use, the pieces standard exchange, tests and settings, control and repair.

At the end of your Professional A-Level, you will have various opportunities:

-       Work in an aircraft maintenance workshop

-       Continue your studies in Aircraft Maintenance Complementary Mention (B1.1 or B2), as apprentice only, with the aim to validate the Part 66 License after 3 years of experience.
