Why Licence is required

No aircraft may take off without the certificate of release to service issued by duly authorized certifying staff on behalf of the CAR-145 approved maintenance organization once satisfied that all maintenance needed by the customer of the aircraft or aircraft component has been effectively carried out by the CAR-145 endorsed maintenance organization in compliance with the processes specified in the maintenance organization exposition while taking into account the accessibility of spare parts. According to Rule 61 of the 1937 Aircraft Rule, which was developed from the 1934 Aircraft Act approved by the Indian Parliament and Government of India, one has to receive a licence from the regulating body, or DGCA, to be eligible to become an AME.

Do you know?

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) must certify and licence an aircraft before it may be flown under the terms of the 1934 Indian Aircraft Act. Before every flight, an authorized AME certifies that the "Aircraft is airworthy and safe for flying". According to DGCA regulations, a person who wants to get an AME licence must go through a licencing program.

Even if you possess a bachelor's in Science, Engineering, Technology Master's or PhD, or other degrees in aviation, aeronautics, or aerospace, you must get a licence from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) by regulation (CAR-66) to certify any aircraft with an Indian registration. Only certified Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs) can vouch for an aircraft's airworthiness and safety during flight.

As a licenced 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 licence.
