Those who have passed the Plus Two examinations with 50% marks in aggregate in physics, chemistry and mathematics or a three-year diploma course in any branch of engineering or B.Sc. degree holders after Plus Two with math’s, physics and chemistry are eligible for admission to AME training courses.
During the training, lessons are imparted for service and maintenance of aircraft so as to ensure flight safety. A three-year Aircraft Maintenance Engineering license training course is being offered by several institutes approved by the DGCA.
The first year of AME training provides basic information about aircraft rules and regulations. In the second year, students learn general engineering and maintenance. In the third year , the study focuses on specific areas like light aircraft, heavy aircaft, piston engines, jet engines or helicopters.
Apart from this, trainees are undergo structural aircraft type courses in mechanical or avionics stream. After successful successful completion of the training programme, the trainees will get a basic aircraft maintenance training certificate. This is followed by an examination conducted by the DGCA.
Those who qualify the examination will be awarded A+UI license. The three-year training is sufficient for a candidate to appear for the aircraft maintenance licensing examinations. After getting the DGCA-AME license, one is required to obtain regulatory licence or approval on a type of aircraft. If is an Airbus or Boeing, one has to obtain an individual license to service that particular type of aircraft. Aircraft Maintenance Engineers are authorized to inspect the aircraft and Certify its fitness.
