A look at the aviation maintenance and aerospace-related programs from top two-year trade schools ranked by Forbes.
Forbes recently released its list of Top 25 Two-Year Trade Schools, which looks at factors such as affordability, student experience and post-graduate success to determine trade schools that seem to be outperforming more prestigious four-year colleges.
Before a new aircraft can be sold to the public, it has to be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. That's a long, complex, and costly process — which is why manufacturers tend to keep upgrading their old models, making all-new designs about as common as winged unicorns.
The aviation industry needs to hire thousands of more people like Thomas Maharis.
Maharis, recent high school graduate who lives with his family in the Howard Beach section of Queens, is earning $25 an hour as an entry-level aircraft technician. In four overnight shifts a week at nearby John F. Kennedy International Airport, Maharis, 19, repairs aircraft cabins after planes are done flying for the day for Delta Air Lines, where he started working in June.
While the aviation industry embraces new technology fully in design (fly-by-wire comes to mind) and even aircraft production, the tendency to think inside the box still has a stranglehold in the maintenance arena.
Take, for instance, technology that allows remotely viewing an article, engine or aircraft with the same (and often better) visibility than viewing on premises: In April, the FAA released draft guidance for comment on "video-witnessing" testing or inspections in design.

Delta Air Lines has opened its new 127,000-sq.-ft. engine repair facility close to Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport where its Delta TechOps unit will service new-generation Rolls-Royce engines.
