The Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) was founded in 1969 by a group of aviation professionals who recognized the need for skilled technicians in the rapidly growing aviation industry. The first campus was established in Norfolk, Virginia, with the goal of providing hands-on training to individuals seeking careers in aircraft maintenance and related fields.
Over the years, AIM expanded its operations and opened additional campuses across the United States, including locations in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, and more. The institute’s programs evolved to encompass not only aircraft maintenance, but also avionics systems, aircraft dispatch, and other specialized areas of aviation maintenance.
AIM’s curriculum is designed to meet the standards set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), ensuring that graduates are well-prepared to enter the workforce as skilled aviation maintenance professionals. The institute also emphasizes the importance of safety and compliance with industry regulations in all aspects of its training programs.
In addition to its academic offerings, AIM provides career services to assist graduates in finding employment opportunities within the aviation industry. This includes job placement assistance, resume building, and interview preparation to help students transition from the classroom to the workforce.
Throughout its history, AIM has remained committed to providing high-quality education and training for individuals pursuing careers in aviation maintenance. The institute is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) and continues to uphold its mission of preparing students for success in the dynamic and vital field of aviation maintenance.
