Who Is SMAT Aviation?

SMAT AVIATION was created to fill two needs: provide a set of needed aviation-related services to the local Michigan aviation community, and to establish a guided experience-building platform for recent SMAT graduates, under the supervision of highly qualified and experienced Aviation Maintenance Technicians and Flight Instructors.

SMAT is well-known as a premier training institution for mission-minded people from around the world. One of the barriers to moving ahead after graduation is finding good opportunities for post-graduation experience—experience that is necessary for pilots and aviation technicians to move into mission or commercial positions.

SMAT AVIATION provides a structured opportunity for SMAT graduates to gain this needed experience and to benefit from the encouragement and support from the SMAT community in Ionia.
