In Aeropro's powerplant certificate program, students learn through hands on, classroom and extended virtual reality the fundamentals of powerplant maintenance and overhaul for piston and turbine engines. The courseware is built around FAA approved course curriculum. The state of the art virtual trainer allows students to reinforce and strengthen classroom learning, and practice in an immersive environment prior to opening an engine.
Students participate in intensive lab sessions within a Part 145 environment.
