A recognized college teaches the approved syllabus of the University and University will conduct various examination, on the basis of which a candidate will be elitists to obtain his Degree or Diploma from the University.
Similarly the AME Institute teaches the syllabus approved by the Director General of Civil Aviation. During the course, the candidates are exposed to syllabus as specified relevant CARs by the DGCA and after passing, achieve license of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering from DGCA.
As per information, in Air India, Indian Airlines, Pawan Hans and other private Airlines, engineers are getting start gross salary of Rs.40,000 which goes upto3.5 Lakh rupees per month based on his experience. Besides this enjoy better placement in metros and other major cities, better social status and perks like free air travels etc.
Before an Aircraft takes off, it has to be checked by Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and get certified as fit for flying. If such a certificate has not been issued, the Aircraft cannot fly. Therefor Aircraft Maintenance Engineer has to take the responsibility for the technical safely of the aircraft as per the Civil Aviation Requirement, stipulated by the DGCA, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Govt. of India.
The demand for maintenance engineers in the Aviation industry is always high. The pace of new aircraft development, systems and technology has never been faster. Large number of foreign airline and Maintenance, Repair and Overhauling Organization (MROs) as entering into Indian market for operation. So this industry will offer a myriad of exciting career opportunities for people with knowledge and acumen. The decision to study Aircraft Maintenance Engineering will lead you on a career path of opportunities including planning, technical instruction, quality control and quality assurance and finally sky will be the limit for your growth and prosperity.
Aircraft Technology range from the simple gas burner and sandbags of a hot air balloon of the carbon filter and fully digital, advanced systems of modern Jet planes. Now-a-day, when aircraft manufactured by first world countries are flying with a speed many time faster than sound, we, the common people of India, are hardly aware of the most dynamic industry of the day.
Over the last seven year, there has been a paradigm shift in Indian Aviation Industry. With the opening of sky and emerging opportunities, the growth of this sector is increasing at a scorching pace. While Indian Aviation is spreading its wing and breaking material boundaries, more and more well trained aviation related profession would be required to serve the booming sector. So aviation related training has become very essential to generate human resources with core competency and strong knowledge base.
The Aviation related training can be classified into two prominent branches. The Flying Branch and Engineering Branch. Flying is the better known of these two branches. We are well aware of pilots who fly the Aircraft but least known are the Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs), behind the flying machine, dedicated to keep the aircraft safe and in airworthy condition. For ever aircraft you see in flight, there are AMEs back in the hanger who have worked to ensure that the aircraft is safe to fly.
Pilot License or AME License is not comparable with the Degree or Diploma given by the Universities. These Licenses are authorizations accorded by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India to exercise the privileges assigned to the individual relating to the maintenance or flying of the civil aircraft under the specified condition.
We are aware of various Flying Institutes and Flying Clubs, duly approved by D.G.C.A. for flight training to obtain the pilot license. Similarly, there are many Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Institutes duly approved by the DGCA, Ministry Civil Aviation, Government of India, for three year Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Course to become an AME
