Aviation Maintenance Technology – Airframe and Powerplant

My name is Andrew Glasse and I graduated in 2009 from Dexter high school, Dexter, Kansas. I started attending WATC right after graduation. I remember talking to one of my friends about it, then I got on WATC’s website. The next thing I know, the ball started rolling down the hill and I was enrolled. It’s gone by pretty fast actually, 18 short months and I’m almost done.

I am in the AMT (Aviation Maintenance Technology program) getting my A&P (Airframe and Powerplant) license. I’m liking it a lot. It was a good choice for me because I didn’t really know what I wanted to do and there is such a wide variety of career paths. You can go overseas, work at NASCAR, or work on locomotives at the railroad. It’s open right now, as to where I want to go.

I would highly recommend everyone to at least look into the program. It’s a good program to get into and this career doesn’t really tie you down like a desk job. You can go to the next city or state and get a job. That’s what I like about it.
