Aviation maintenance is a dynamic career field, changing continuously since Charles Taylor, the first aircraft mechanic, helped design, build, and maintain the engine for the 1903 Wright Brothers’ Flyer. Now and in the future, aircraft maintenance will continue to change. New designs and materials in aircraft construction and the interface between complex space-age systems, such as navigational aides, fly-by-wire, flight controls and electronic fuel controls, as well as the improvements in the time proven systems such as hydraulics and propellers continue to add to the mysticism of flight.

FAA regulation, 14 CFR Part 65, establishes what education and skill requirements must be met prior to testing for the General,Airframe, and Powerplant certification.
