For Immediate Release
July 26, 2018 AirVenture – Oshkosh, WI. Aspiring aviation mechanics have a new way to prepare for their FAA Oral, Practical, & Written Tests. King Schools has released online versions of their popular General, Airframe, and Powerplant Knowledge & Test Prep Video Courses. The online A&P Mechanics courses include updated video lessons and an integrated Test Prep section featuring an extensive database of FAA-style questions, online flashcards and timed practice exams. The new courses are also compatible with the KING Companion App for iPad or iPhone. The App allows you to download your lessons (videos and quizzes), and take them when offline. When back online, your course progress is automatically synchronized with King’s servers and available from any other device.
Barry Knuttila, CEO of King Schools explained “These courses are ideal for busy aviation mechanics who are preparing for their A&P exams. They are accessible from any computer or device and allow the completion of a new lesson in just 15 minutes. With lifetime access and free updates, the courses will continue to provide a great refresher for mechanics long after passing their exams. Pilots will also enjoy taking these courses to learn more about the airplanes they fly and to become more knowledgeable partners with their aircraft mechanics.”
John King, Co Chairman and Founder of King Schools said “There is great news for anyone passionate about aviation who would like to make a living doing what they love. Salaries, benefits and opportunities for mechanics, pilots, flight instructors, flight crew—jobs in just about every area of aviation—are rapidly improving. Short and long-term trends point toward aviation offering a fulfilling and financially rewarding career that will enable new hires to prosper throughout their working life.”
Martha King, Co Chairman and Founder of King Schools added, “Aspiring mechanics have an especially bright future. King Schools recently completed an in-house study considering aviation mechanics and their future job prospects. Some highlights include a 9% supply and demand gap of new mechanics by 2027, as global airlines grow their fleets by 40%. Boeing predicts 101,000 new mechanics are needed between now and 2034. Airlines and local shops are offering better benefits, programs and salaries to attract aircraft mechanics to fill both new spots, and those vacated by retiring baby boomers. There is now, and will continue to be for many years to come, an aircraft mechanic shortage.”
The three new King Schools Online A&P Mechanics courses are:
- Airframe – Knowledge & Test Prep Course,
- Powerplant – Knowledge & Test Prep
- General – Knowledge & Test Prep Course
They sell for $199 each and include lifetime updates. The Online A&P Mechanics Bundle includes all three courses for $495 and includes the new King Schools Online Aviation Library ($79 value).
