Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME)

The fast growing aviation industry has always demanded the best of human perfection to keep alive the human quest to find new milestone in aviation.


AME Program

 

AME (Aircraft maintenance engineering) Program at IIAE (Indian Institute of Aircraft Engineering) is now CAR-147(BASIC) compliant. Under this programme institute is approved by DGCA Ministry of civil aviation, Govt of India for AME license category B1.1 which covers heavy aircraft and turbine engine to be known as Mechanical stream and category B2 which covers aircraft electrical instrumentation and aircraft communication and navigation system to be known as Avionics stream.


For issue of B1.1 and B2 AME license one has to gain four years of Aircraft maintenance experience in DGCA CAR-145Approved AMO (Aircraft Maintenance Organization) and CAR-147 (Basic) Maintenance Training Organization. In addition to the maintenance experience, an individual has to pass 11 modules for AME license B1.1 covering heavy turbine powered aircraft and 10 modules for B2 AME license covering avionics stream conducted by DGCA.


The four years programme is divided in two parts:

  • Approved academic programme under CAR-147(Basic) : 2 years
  • Practical maintenance experience requirements on flying aircraft : 2 years

Approval Document


Approved Academic Programme Under CAR-147 (Basic)

 

The academic programme is divided into four semesters covering 2400 hours of theoretical and practical training in 2 years duration for both B1 and B2 stream. Out of 2400 hours of training, 1500 hours will be devoted in classroom teaching and 960 hours will be devoted in of Practical training. Out of 960 hours of practical training,30%practical training i.e. 288 hours will be conducted with AMO (Aircraft Maintenance Organization). For this, IIAE has entered into long term legal contract with M/S SAURYA AREONOTCS PVT.LTD. New Delhi For all the practical training required to be imparted on flying aircraft under CAR-147(Basic) programme.

The academic programme conducted by IIAE is fully approved under CAR-147 (Basic) requirements along with approved curriculum by DGCA.

The entire theoretical and practical programme covers four semesters containing the following subjects and their teaching and training schedule as given below:
