Eligibility Requirements for A&P Mechanic

To be eligible for an FAA mechanic certificate and associated ratings, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age

  • Read, write, speak, and understand English

  • Have passed all of the prescribed tests within a period of 24 months (take the A&P Test Prep Course)

  • Meet the education or experience requirement

14 CFR § 65.77 Experience requirements

Each applicant for a mechanic certificate or rating must present either an appropriate graduation certificate or certificate of completion from a certificated aviation maintenance technician school or documentary evidence, satisfactory to the Administrator, of -

(a) At least 18 months of practical experience with the procedures, practices, materials, tools, machine tools, and equipment generally used in constructing, maintaining, or altering airframes, or powerplants appropriate to the rating sought; or

(b) At least 30 months of practical experience concurrently performing the duties appropriate to both the airframe and powerplant ratings.

There are two ways you may obtain the training and experience necessary to become an FAA-certificated Airframe and/or Powerplant Mechanic:  Academic training through an FAA-certificated Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) or on-the-job training (OJT).

*A military aviation maintenance background may give you the credit towards meeting the FAA experience requirements, depending on your MOS.  Refer to FAA Advisory Circular AC 65-30.

​14 CFR § 65.79 Skill requirements.

Each applicant for a mechanic certificate or rating must pass an oral and a practical test on the rating he seeks. The tests cover the applicant's basic skill in performing practical projects on the subjects covered by the written test for that rating. An applicant for a powerplant rating must show his ability to make satisfactory minor repairs to, and minor alterations of, propellers.
