Las Vegas campus graduate shares experience
Aside from working hard and perseverance, one of the most important factors in kicking off your career is education — and the institution you get it at.
A school with a reputable background can build a stable foundation and give its students a solid head start, a higher chance to graduate, and most of all, the support needed to succeed in a chosen career.
Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) in Las Vegas, Nevada clearly has this vision of success for all their students. Answering to the shortage of aviation maintenance technicians, AIM is dedicated to help aspiring students reach their goals of getting into the aviation industry.
“I chose AIM for my education because I knew they would help me achieve my goal of attaining my A&P License,” said Levon Dela Pena, 27, AIM Las Vegas 2017 graduate.
“With the guidance of AIM instructors and staff throughout the process, specifically Ladeth Gonzales (Admissions), I was motivated to be successful in this field,” Dela Pena said.
At present, Dela Pena is working for Certified Aviation Services (CAS) in Las Vegas as an A&P mechanic. An A&P mechanic is an aircraft maintenance technician who holds and Airframe and/or Powerplant (A&P) certificate, issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). An A&P technician inspects aircraft as well as performs, supervises and conducts preventive maintenance.
Dela Pena attests to the support that he received while he was with AIM Las Vegas and highly recommends the school to those who wish to pursue a career in aviation.
“I recommend AIM because everyone is willing to help and you’re never left with a question unanswered,” he said. “They aim to help each student succeed and complete the program.”
Located at 5870 S. Eastern Avenue, AIM Las Vegas offers Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT), Aviation Maintenance Technician Avionics (AMTA) and Maintenance Technician programs. The AMT program is designed to provide students the knowledge and skills as an aircraft mechanic and prepares them for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) test.
