Air Force aircraft maintenance technicians complete a significant amount of advanced training in various maintenance disciplines ranging from advanced composites, to integrated avionics, to highly fuel efficient powerplant systems. The training and practical experience gained by Air Force technicians is recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) towards the Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certification. In 2000, the Joint Service Aviation Maintenance Technician Council developed an FAA-approved A&P Certification Program, which provides the skill gap training and experiences necessary for technicians from all branches of the US Armed Services to be successful in completing FAA A&P certification examinations. Air Force aircraft technicians can complete the Air Force A&P Certification Program, managed by the Community College of the Air Force. For more information on this program, visit
