Aircraft Turbine Technicians inspect aircraft engines, troubleshoot issues with mechanical systems, and modify, repair, and test turbine engines. You’ll learn the techniques, procedures, and documentation requirements you need to work in one of PEI’s fastest growing industries.

We place emphasis on practical training, using a variety of turbine engines including the Pratt and Whitney 100 series turbine engine used on the de Havilland Dash 8 aircraft, the Pratt and Whitney PT6 engine, and the Rolls Royce 250 engine. Our program was designed in consultation with the PEI aerospace industry to provide you with essential skills and experience to launch your career.
