Academy 147 offers aircraft type specific, Line Maintenance training courses. These one-week courses are accepted by the Federal Aviation Administration of the United States in accordance with Order 8900.1, Volume 3, Chapter 56, paragraph (B)(4)).

Our line maintenance courses are a more concise version of an initial course and are ideal for operations where time is critical, and students need to be trained on the most essential topics in a highly specialized manner.

Our line maintenance courses can be delivered on-location, virtually anywhere and can be tailored to your schedule and the needs of your operation.


Our line courses cover the essential LRU items, basic troubleshooting and an overview of the aircraft’s systems, technical documentation, important maintenance practices related to the airframe and more.

In addition to the above, a strong emphasis is given to performing specific tasks in accordance with the AMM and other available technical data so that students can gain the knowledge necessary to be efficient and confident with day to day line maintenance items.  The specific tasks can be chosen by the customer.

Knowledge Delivery

We use a variety of visual media, diagrams and other training aids in conjunction with our training manuals to provide interactive learning sessions. In many cases, we also have access to the aircraft and can conduct live demonstrations to give students a better hands-on understanding of the aircraft systems.

We prefer a “Practical hands-on” approach to maintenance training. Each of our instructors is active in the field and up to date with the latest in-service developments.


Upon completing one of our Line Maintenance courses and passing the required assessments, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion with an FAA acceptance code.

Multiple assessments will be conducted to ensure that the participant is confident and capable of performing routine line maintenance tasks, troubleshooting and effectively navigating the aircraft’s technical documentation.

Practical "Hands on" Element

Line maintenance training can be a combination of classroom and aircraft based training.

In addition to the one week course, we also offer an optional but recommended 3-5 day Practical “hands-on” add on where one of our instructors will guide students and advise them while performing a series of routine maintenance tasks.  This can be fully customized and integrated with a maintenance input.
