Cat. B1.1 Mechanical - Aeroplane Turbine

In the aviation field, an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) holds a valid license and is responsible for performing and certifying aircraft maintenance. In India, only licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs) authorized by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) are authorized to ensure the airworthiness of aircraft registered in India before their flight operations.

The Mechanical B1.1 stream, which focuses on jet engines and heavy aeroplane structures, is commonly referred to as Category B1.1 in the Mechanical stream. Students pursuing mechanical stream must pass all basic knowledge module tests conducted by DGCA and fulfil the maintenance experience requirements specified in Civil Aviation Requirement-66. Successful completion of these requirements enables students to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineering License in Category B1.1.

Do you know?

According to India's Aircraft Act, of 1934, an aircraft registered in India must first be certified by an AME approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and licensed to perform aircraft maintenance. Before each flight, the licensed AME verifies the safety and airworthiness of the aircraft. According to DGCA guidelines, anyone who wants to obtain an AME license must complete a licensing program.
As per CAR-66 regulations, even with qualifications such as BSc, BE/B.Tech, ME/M, it is necessary to obtain a license from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to certify any Indian-registered aircraft. Tech, or Ph.D. in Aviation/Aeronautical/Aerospace. Only a licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) can certify that an aircraft is airworthy and safe to fly.

As a licensed AME you can certify:

  • Large Aircraft operated by Airlines.
  • Aircraft operated for charter operation and business jets.
  • Aircraft used by State and Central Governments for their various needs.
  • Aircraft required for pilot’s flying training.

You can work in a variety of domestic and foreign aviation businesses after earning your AME license.
