The St. Philip's College Aircraft Technology Program is the primary aerospace training resource in South Texas. The program offers traditional college courses for students seeking the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airframe and Powerplant license.  It is also the only provider of customized instruction and development for business and industry, offering specialized training for new and incumbent employees.  In response to labor shortages and an aging workforce, the program worked with industry and the community to create the nationally recognized Dual Credit Aerospace Academy as a feeder program for the growing aerospace presence in the Alamo region. 

Professional Licenses

The St. Philip’s College Aircraft Technology program is certified by the Federal Aviation Administration to provide the required training to allow graduates to apply and test for their Airframe Mechanics license, Powerplant Mechanics license, and/or Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics license issued by the Federal Aviation Administration.
