The Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Ministry of Civil Aviation Govt. Of India managed the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering which is a authorize program. Safety and security of the aircraft is control by aircraft maintenance engineers. They are specially instructed to carry out intricate maintenance process including periodical maintenance program as per the Aircraft manufactures requirements and issue flight released certificate for safety before each flight take off. To carry out the maintenance and the flight certificate, candidate have to undergo the 2 years authorize program of AME by Govt. of India. In the aviation sector, safety is an important concern. An aircraft is made of many numerous parts, electrical or electronic system etc. With the time the parts also need maintenance and regular inspection of aircraft have become very important. Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is up skill to examine an aircraft, recognize the problem and solve the issues Before the flight takes off, the aircraft engineer is in charge to make sure each and every aircraft parts are working properly. AME professional, maintain the Smooth functioning of the aviation sector. For AME professionals, one must have the AME authorize license, issued by the Govt. of India. To obtain the license, the candidate has to complete training from DGCA approved institute.
CAR 147 Basic AME training in 2 Categories, (1) Category B1.1 (Aeroplane Turbine) and (2) Category B2 (Avionics) in line with DGCA’s regulations as per CAR 147 Basic.
Category B1.1 (Aeroplane Turbine) - Candidate enrolled under Category B1.1 (Aeroplane Turbine) is trained to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s License for the maintenance performed on aircraft structure, Power-plant comprising of Light Aeroplane (LA), Heavy Aeroplane (HA), Piston Engine (PE), Jet Engine (JE).
Category B2 (Avionics) - Candidate enrolled under Category B2 (Avionics) is trained to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s License with respect to maintaining an aircraft’s Electrical System (ES), Instrument System (IS) and Radio Navigation System (RN). AME course for both the categories in 2 years duration consisting of four semesters, each semester of six months.
Mechanical Stream Aircraft maintenance engineer Repair aircraft, Installation, aircraft radio, Airframes and Engines, and avionic (electronic) and mechanical systems. Avionics stream is the discipline that applies engineering, physics to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain electronic systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines. The AME engineer maintain and repair the various electrical / electronic and structural components of planes and helicopters.
After successfully completion of Aircraft maintenance engineering course, you have to clear the AME licensing exam conducted by the DGCA. On completion of training you will get a B.A.M.E.C (Basic Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Certificate) from the DGCA, then you can achieve the job in the aviation industry. AME engineering basic starting gross salary of about 30000/- to 70000/- per month, which goes up to 1.50 lakh, India to be the third beigest buyer of passenger aeroplanes in the world. As per report with 1.7 thousand aeroplane orders, To meet the operational required of the business jets, private jets, corporate jets, airlines, cargo aircrafts, MRO and General Aviation industries, there exists an urgent requirement for AME Engineers. There will be 3,30,000 Lakhs new jobs in Indian aviation industry by 2020 as per Government of India estimation and planning. AME salary package is very much high.
To become an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, a candidate must be 10+2 with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects or equivalent AICTE approved 3 years diploma in engineering. AGE LIMIT- The candidate age must not be less than 16 years COLOR BLINDNESS- Candidate must not be colorblind.
AME license is an authorization issued by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Government of India, to maintain and certify the flight before it takes off. No flight can take off without the license issued by the AME professional. The AME license course does not need any approval from AICTE. The license is provided by the DGCA, Government of India. DGCA coordinates all regulatory functions with International Civil Aviation Organization. The candidate has to clear six semester course to receive the AME certificate license. ADMISSION PROCEDURE 2019 Candidate who is interested in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering can appear in JEE AME Entrance Examination. Candidate must be 10+2 with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects or equivalent AICTE approved 3 years diploma in engineering. Appearing student can also apply.
