Do you like to work with your hands and have above-average mechanical ability?

Then you may wish to investigate aircraft and avionics maintenance as a possible career field. This can be a life-long career for you, one that grows in responsibility along with your skills and experience.
The Michigan Institute of Aeronautics, at Willow Run Airport in Belleville, Michigan, near the border of Wayne and Washtenaw Counties, is considered one of the finest such training facilities in the nation. On your tour, you can find out what it takes to become an FAA-Licensed Mechanic, how the job market looks and where our graduates work, the compensation and benefits available, the details of our training program, and how this training can be the basis for two- and four-year degree programs should our graduates wish to continue.
