Avionics Technician



In joining the avionics community, I’d recommend you get all the education and certifications you can. I can't stress enough how much the avionics program at new windowNova Scotia Community College has helped me to jump start my career. Further, be like a sponge and soak up all the knowledge you are able from the older guys in the industry.

About me:

I grew up in an aviation family. My father and grandfather were both private pilots and my uncle was an aircraft mechanic. I was visiting Canada and decided I wanted to move there for a bit. In order to do that I needed to be actively enrolled in a college program. As I was looking at possible programs, an avionics program jumped out me, so I enrolled. I'm glad I did because I've been in love with avionics since the first day of school! I graduated from the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Avionics) program at Nova Scotia Community College in Canada. Also, while attending class during the day, at night I worked to complete the Aircraft Mechanics course through ICS Canada online. In addition, I obtained the NCATT AET certification with all four endorsements. My day to day is different everyday! I could be troubleshooting an avionics squawk on a GA aircraft or installing an upgraded/new system avionics system on a corporate jet. I enjoy using my brain to work out complicated avionics issues in a fast paced environment.
