Why Licence is required

Without the certificate of release to service provided by authorised certifying personnel on behalf of the CAR-145 maintenance organisation, an aircraft cannot take off. This certificate attests that the CAR-145-endorsed maintenance organisation followed the procedures outlined in the maintenance organisation exposition while taking into account the availability of spare parts and completing the necessary repairs on the aircraft or aircraft component. Individuals must receive a licence from the governing authority (DGCA) to be eligible to become an AME, according to Rule 61 of the 1937 Aircraft Rule, which was developed from the 1934 Aircraft Act and authorised by the Indian Parliament and Government of India.

Do you know?

Any aircraft registered in India must be certified by a licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) recognised by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) by the Aircraft Act of 1934. Before each flight, the AME is in charge of completing aircraft maintenance and making sure it is safe and airworthy. Individuals must finish a licencing programme in compliance with DGCA requirements to get an AME licence.

Even those who possess degrees in aviation, aeronautics, or aerospace such as a BSc, BE/B.Tech, ME/M. Tech or PhD are required under CAR-66 requirements to get a licence from the DGCA before they may certify any aircraft that is registered in India. The only person with the power to confirm an aircraft's airworthiness and safety for flight is a licenced AME.

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.
  • Aircraft required for pilot’s flying training.

After becoming a licensed AME, you can be employed in various national and international aviation industries across the world.
