Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME)

Licensed AMEs are the unsung heroes of the aviation industry, playing a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and reliability of aircraft. With opportunities spanning airlines, Maintenance and Repair Organizations (MROs), and aircraft manufacturing companies, their expertise is indispensable. In India's burgeoning aviation sector, the demand for skilled AMEs is on the rise.

According to International standards of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) which is a specialised body of United Nations for civil aviation affairs, stating in ICAO Annexure I - Personnel Licencing, as well as the Indian Aircraft Rules-1937 and Aircraft Act-1934 passed by the Indian Parliament, “No aircraft can be released to fly without certification from a licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME)” In other words, any aircraft registered in India, whether it belongs to a private or government airline, government department, business, flying club, or emergency services such as air ambulance, can’t fly unless it has been certified for its airworthiness (safe operation) by a licensed AME, these licence are issued by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Government of India as per the CAR-66 regulation.

Do you know?

To guarantee the highest safety standards in the aviation sector, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in India requires Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME) to get a licence. All AME training facilities must get DGCA approval, and their programs and exam procedures are routinely checked to see if they adhere to the authority's safety guidelines and requirements. Before receiving their license, AMEs must complete a demanding training program and successfully pass tests. The AME's ability to perform their jobs safely and effectively while upholding the highest standard of safety in the Indian aviation sector is ensured by this license.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) teaches students how to maintain and repair airplanes to keep them safe and airworthy. Topics including aircraft systems, materials, maintenance techniques, and safety protocols are covered in AME courses. Additionally, the course offers hands-on instruction and exposure to aircraft systems and components. People can work in a variety of sectors of the aviation industry, including airlines, maintenance and repair organizations, and aircraft manufacturing firms, after successfully finishing the AME course and getting the required licenses from the appropriate aviation authorities.

The AME course is divided into different streams, the Mechanical B1.1 stream of the AME course, which is separated into multiple streams, focuses on the maintenance and repair of aircraft with mechanical propulsion systems, such as jet engines and huge airplane constructions. The Mechanical B1.3 stream, on the other hand, focuses on the upkeep and repair of helicopters and turbine engines.

Students can profit in a variety of ways by taking an aviation course via a recognised organization like Sha Shib Group. The business is well known for providing top-notch education and training programs and has years of expertise in the aviation sector. The knowledgeable professors, exposure to cutting-edge aviation maintenance and repair technologies, and the opportunity for hands-on training are all advantages for students. Sha Shib Group also offers students internship and job placement possibilities with top aviation firms due to its extensive industry network. A student's credentials are more credible when they are studied under a reputable organization like Sha Shib Group, which may also raise their chances of success in the aviation sector. Multiple MROs and operational aircraft owned by Sha-Shib Group enable the students to gain practical experience throughout the training.

Aviation Industry

Within the next ten years, India, which is now the world's seventh-largest civil aviation industry, is anticipated to overtake the United States as the third-largest civil aviation market. Additionally, a rise in demand for AMEs is anticipated as a result of the Indian government's emphasis on building regional airports and improving air connectivity throughout the nation.

Some facts about Aviation

  • India has a significant position in the worldwide MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) services industry for airplanes. This is anticipated to increase the number of job prospects for AMEs in India, particularly as the nation grows more appealing to foreign airlines and MRO businesses eager to outsource their maintenance work.
  • With projects like Nagpur's Multi-modal International Cargo Centre and Airport (MIHAN), India has also made progress towards becoming an important cargo center.
  • Currently, India has 464 operational airports, 124 of which are under the ownership of the Airport Authority of India (AAI).
  • Various airports and airstrips are under construction around the nation.
  • There are 91 domestic and foreign airlines operating out of India, and many more are about to do so.
  • Potential for the growth of regional air travel in our nation under the "UDAN" RCS (scheme).
