Are You Aware of ?

Why is a licence required to work as an aircraft maintenance engineer in the aviation sector?

Students must complete training at an institution recognised by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) of the Government of India to become an aircraft maintenance engineer (AME). To obtain the required AME licence, students must pass all module exams according to DGCA Civil Aviation Requirements (CAR) 66. Only those with an AME licence are qualified to carry out particular tasks in the industry.

Candidates must complete extensive academic and practical aircraft maintenance engineering training at a DGCA-approved institute to be awarded an AME licence. This training will prepare candidates for the module exams administered by the DGCA.

Candidates with a degree in aviation, aeronautical, or aerospace, such as a BSc, BE/B. Tech, ME/MTech, or PhD, must take the appropriate course and satisfy the requirements of CAR 66 to become aircraft maintenance engineers (AMEs), as required by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation. Only a licensed AME has the authority to certify an aircraft as airworthy.

Aeronautical engineering is a 4-year engineering program approved by the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). It focuses on the creation, advancement, and maintenance of airplanes and spacecraft. On the other hand, aircraft maintenance engineering (AME) is a separate program. Only licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers are permitted to certify an aircraft as fit to fly according to CAR 66. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) offers a license-based program in aircraft maintenance engineering through approved institutes. To join an AME course, individuals must complete 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (PCM) as their main subjects.

The DGCA does not coordinate or partner with any organization to hold an entrance exam for AME institute admissions. However, institutions are free to hold their own admission exams. For example, the Sha-Shib Group, the largest provider of the finest AME education in South Asia, administers the SSAT entrance test to register students in its network of colleges.

Choosing the right program and institution is crucial for students to achieve their career objectives based on their interests and talents. Sha-Shib Group offers excellent academic and practical training, preparing students effectively for the aviation industry. As the largest organisation in South Asia providing top-notch AME training, Sha-Shib Group owns several MROs and operational aircraft, offering students valuable practical training opportunities. With hands-on training, mentorship, and guidance from experienced industry professionals, along with world-class academic programs, Sha-Shib Group ensures students are well-prepared for a bright future in aviation.

There are already 91 local and foreign airlines operating in India, and many more are expected to do so soon.

There are many work prospects in the aviation industry thanks to India's continuously growing MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) facilities.

In the following ten years, India plans to have more than 200 international airports.

Prominent businesses like Tata, Mahindra, Bajaj, Reliance, Adani, and others have begun investing in the aviation sector, indicating the market has enormous development potential.
