The City of Kissimmee’s Economic Development Office announced that Aviator College of Aeronautical Science & Technology, will open a new campus at Kissimmee Gateway Airport, in early 2015. This Kissimmee facility will offer airframe and power plant (A&P) mechanics classes that go towards preparation of Federal Aviation Administration A&P certifications.
Aviator College currently has a campus in Fort Pierce, Florida whose primary focus is flight training with a small offering of A&P training. Their new Kissimmee campus will be the reverse – with a strong focus on the airframe and power plant classes.
Aviator College will not only offer classes towards A&P certification, they will also develop a college degree program as advanced as their Fort Pierce operation. “Given the expected shortage and the wide acceptance for FAA A&P certifications, this academic program will place Kissimmee in the forefront as a leading aviation training location,” said Terry Lloyd, Kissimmee Aviation Director.
