To be enrolled in AVIATION ACADEMY OF SOUTH TEXAS as a mechanic student, you must first meet the F.A.A. experience requirements. The purpose of this is to be sure the F.A.A. will permit you to take the written exam after you finish the course. There are four (4) ways of proving your experience to the F.A.A. Any of these four ways will be considered as proof:
Have the F.A.A. written exam grade slip which shows you met the requirements in the past.
Have a completion certificate from a civilian F.A.A. approved mechanic school. To obtain this type of completion certificate, you must have attended a mechanic school full time for 2 to 3 years.
Have a military discharge records showing that you have worked on aircraft as a mechanic for the required number of months. (DD-214)
Have a "mechanic's experience letter" signed by your shop superintendent, maintenance officer or licensed mechanic under whom you have worked.
Having complied with (2) or (3) or (4) above, you now should go to your F.A.A. office and comply with no. (5).
Ensure both 8610-2 Forms have original signatures of the FAA Inspector and yours.

Therefore, in order to take an Oral and Practical examination with one of our examiners, you must bring your written score reports and your airmen certificate and/or rating application 8610-2. Your F.A.A. inspector should give you two copies of the 8610-2 form, both bearing original signatures. Photo copied signatures are not accepted.
For our students' convenience, we have scheduled local F.A.A. designated mechanic examiners for morning, afternoon and weekend testing. Call the school for their current exam fees.
