Graduation numbers don’t concern us, but the quality of our graduates does. That’s why our mission is to equip students technically and professionally. With USAeroTech, you’ll be provided with the highest levels of technical training. We do this by creating a spirit of excellence around our academics, instructors and facilities. More importantly, we put you in an environment with the rigors and demands to help you succeed in whatever aviation field you head into — be it general, corporate, commercial, or missionary. Our vision is clear: We want to produce highly sought after Aviation Maintenance Technicians.
With more than 100 years of combined teaching experience, our instructors offer unparalleled skill and wisdom to be handed down to the next generation of AMT’s. But what really sets us apart is our dedication to see each student grow in the areas of aviation mechanics.
I remember my first airplane ride at 6 years old, and I remember working with my dad preflighting military aircraft in my teens. Later, I served in the Air Force as a Crew Chief and a Mechanic Instructor. My greatest pleasure includes watching people as they learn something new, and I’m very humbled to be involved in their aviation education.
I have been fascinated with aviation since childhood. Over the last 30 years I’ve been privileged to work as pilot, mechanic, and instructor in general aviation, missionary aviation, and the regional airlines. My greatest privilege is teaching aviation because teaching allows me to have an influence in the lives and careers of others.
My flying career began in the baggage compartment of my Grandfathers Cessna 150 when I was old enough to remember. Since then I have had a passion to fly and it has never ceased. My degree is in Business & Commercial Aviation and I have been teaching for 12 years. I have the most exciting job in that I get to see others realize their dreams by becoming professional pilots.
You could learn how to “fix planes” anywhere. At USAeroTech, you learn a variety of mechanical subjects on a variety of aircraft within a 12,000 square foot hangar. We also have multiple classrooms, a break area and more. Newly added to our fleet is a Boeing 727 jet, enabling us to offer an emphasis on transport category aircraft right here in the Upstate of South Carolina
At USAeroTech, we desire to graduate Aviation Maintenance Technicians who not only display the skillful expertise of their craft, but also carry themselves with the personal appearance and integrity worthy of the field. We promote the character qualities of punctuality, teachability, honesty, motivation, and accountability.
Clearly, we are not a school for everyone. We are a school for those who desire to be the best!
