"The Andrews University Aircraft Maintenance Technician program is really a place for anyone who wants to learn. The program is designed to teach even those without any previous maintenance knowledge. When I first started at Andrews I didn't even know how a reciprocating engine worked. Two years later I became employed as a mechanic for a fleet of turbine powered helicopters. If your next goal is to become an Aircraft mechanic, the instructors at AU will work tirelessly to get you there." Connor McCain AMT 2013 now works for Central Helicopters in Bozeman Montana.
