About AME Course

Aircraft Maintenance Engineer is a person specifically licensed or authorized by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Government of India, to certify the airworthiness (fit to fly) of an aircraft and its systems. All civil aircraft are required to be maintained and certified airworthy before each flight by a qualified Aircraft Maintenance Engineer. Hence all aircraft operators employ aircraft Technicians and AME’s.

All Maintenance on an aircraft is to be carried out by trained technical persons in accordance with rules and is to be certified by a licenced/authorized AME. Only after such certification the aircraft can be flown.

AME licence can be obtained by undergoing AME training in an approved AME college/school. AME schools approved under Civil Aviation Requirement (CAR) 147 can only provide this course. As of Jan,2020 there are 45 approved AME schools offering 3300 seats. It is 2400 hours of rigorous training to be completed in two years. 90% attendance is mandatory. Complete curriculum, methodology, seats, Instructors and practical training are prescribed by DGCA.

Careers in AME

You can't imagine a world, quite frankly, without a safe and secure aviation system. And so our job is to really focus on that, and what we need to do to keep it safe and secure.

A flying bird has always fascinated the man. He built the machines in which he could fly in the air. A flying aircraft appeals to every eye. It is a matter of pride and prestige to be part of an industry and be in the minds of the people. Aviation personnel, be it pilots, aircraft engineers, technicians or airhostesses have always enjoyed an aura of exclusivity. Everyone wants to be part of some exclusive club. Aircraft Maintenance Engineering gives you a sense of achievement and a feeling of pride being technologically knowledgeable. All sophisticated aircraft are maintained and certified by AME’s. Aircraft Maintenance Engineers are that group of people who are highly trained, sought after and highly paid for. This profession gives prestige and satisfaction at each step.

Aviation industry is growing at high speed. With each aircraft becoming operational number of technical posts are created. Statistically one operational aircraft leads to creation of at least 28 jobs. If the aircraft is operated by an airline job creation is even higher. Order books of most aircraft manufacturers are full for next few years. All the aircraft need constant maintenance. It is estimated that in near future India will be third largest aviation market. Business of aircraft maintenance is enormous and it is set to expand. There is wide gap in supply and demand of properly trained and qualified manpower leading to high salaries and almost zero unemployment. Therefore, it is important to choose the right school to join the training. Demonstrated past performance in DGCA licence examination leading to employment of students is the best criteria to select a school. Indian AME ‘s and Aircraft technicians are in high demand in Gulf and Middle-east. This bright career beacons you and you need to decide to part of this highly respectable and paid for profession or be left behind. Star Aviation Academy is the most appropriate school for AME course.
