OUR PASSION IS FOR AVIATION TECHNOLOGY

Located at the Eugene F. Kranz Toledo Express Airport, the Federal Aerospace Institute (FAI) is a 14 CFR Part 147 Aircraft Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) offering a program that will inspire and prepare you for an exciting, rewarding career as an FAA Certificated Airframe & Powerplant Aircraft Technician. FAI is the only post secondary school of its type in the region.

INDUSTRY OUTLOOK

The rapid growth of the Aerospace Industry coupled with the number of Aircraft Maintenance Technicians retiring or reaching retirement age has created a huge gap and need for Maintenance Technicians.  In February of 2020, The United Stated Governmental Accountability Office reported that based on FAA Data the median age of FAA-certificated mechanics and repairmen was 54 years old.  Specifically, 52% were between the ages of 50 and 70 years old; 19%  were between 39 and 49; and 19% were between 18 and 38.
