The Engine Repair Station is a unique experience for students in the ERAU AMS degree program. This FAA certificated facility has been a part of the powerplant curriculum since its establishment by Chandler Titus in 1956.
The 3,000 square foot shop supports the AMS 375 Repair Station Operations course. During this course, students spend a semester in the repair station performing overhauls on airworthy engines. Additionally, students gain knowledge about the full scope of requirements to work in an FAA certificated Part 145 repair station. The repair station is staffed by highly experienced Repair Station Manager, Chief Inspector, Repair Station Technician and student employees who are hired by the repair station.
The repair station consists of a 1900 square foot shop work area where the majority of the engine overhaul work is performed. In addition, there is a machine shop, cylinder shop, abrasive cleaning room, chemical cleaning room and paint booth room.
