- The duration of this course will be 2 years (4 semesters) and students will be issued with Certificate of Recognition on successful completion of training course. This will be a course completion certificate.
- In this 2 years of course, 30% of the practical training element i.e. 330 hours of entire practical hours will be carried out in DGCA approved CAR-145 Aircraft Maintenance organization for all B1.1(Heavy Aero plane & Turbine Engine), B1.3 (Helicopter & Turbine Engine) and B2 (Avionics) categories.
- Students are required to pass the semester module examinations of this institute along with DGCA modular examination.
Aircraft Maintenance Engineers play a Major role among the Maintenance personnel to keep the Aircraft 'Airworthy' at all times. No civil Aircraft reg. in India can be operated without being certified as Airworthy by the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s holding AME licenses in the respective categories. The maintenance of modern sophisticated aircraft calls for high degree of technical knowledge, competence, proficiency & integrity on the part of the concerned personnel. Tremendous responsibility lies upon the Aircraft Maintenance Engineers who are certifying the modern sophisticated Aircraft’s, manned by experienced crew trained at high cost and great care carrying the precious load of ever increasing number of passengers.
