Centennial College’s aviation technician programs offered within the School of Transportation include: Aviation Technician (Aircraft Maintenance), Aviation Technician (Avionics Maintenance), Aviation Technology (Aircraft Maintenance & Management), and Aviation Technology (Avionics Maintenance & Management). In the fall of 2019, Centennial opened its new 12,700-square-metre Centre for Aerospace and Aviation at Toronto’s Downsview Park. The four-acre Downsview campus provides additional instruction space for the existing programs, as well as new programs in Aerospace Manufacturing delivered by the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science. The $72-million project includes a new hangar large enough to accommodate today’s commercial jets, as well as new classrooms, laboratory space, workshops, offices, a library and, for the first time, access to working runways.

The Aircraft Maintenance program provides mechanical, electrical, electronic and other science skills related to aircraft maintenance. It emphasizes the repair of electrical and mechanical systems within the aircraft. Students will study hydraulics, fuels, environmental systems, engines,
flight controls, landing gear system and airframes and structure. The Avionics Maintenance program covers aircraft communications, navigation and data systems, and inspection and troubleshooting of basic electronics circuits.
