Aircraft Mechanics

High School

The first requirement for prospective aircraft mechanics is a high school diploma. Courses in mathematics, physics, computer science, chemistry, and mechanical drawing are particularly helpful because they teach the principles involved in the operation of an aircraft, and this knowledge is often necessary to making the repairs. Machine shop, auto mechanics, or electrical shop are important courses for gaining many skills needed by aircraft mechanics.
