What makes this program unique compared to other Aviation Maintenance programs?
There are very few aviation maintenance programs in the region, and the Airframe Certificate program allows students to complete only the airframe courses and meet FAA regulations for working behind the scenes on aircrafts. In addition, Iowa Western has constructed a state-of-the-art Aviation Maintenance building at the Council Bluffs airport, which includes a hangar that houses several different types of airplanes and helicopters, including single engine planes and a DC-10 jet engine. Our students get valuable hands-on experience in a real-world setting.
