What is the general civil aviation scenario in India?
The industry is growing, and in the near future, India intends to become one of the largest civil aviation markets across the globe. This refers to a lot of civil aviation job opportunities, therefore, making it a lucrative career for qualified professionals.
How is the Placement of this Institute?
As highlighted about the uniqueness of the Indian aviation industry and the amount of development it is poised at, placements are not going to be an issue. Thanks to the various initiatives of the Indian Government towards the development of MROs and the Indian aviation sector, it will create huge requirements for B1 and B2 licensed AMEs as of today. As they are the only certifying engineers as per CAR 66 who can
maintain and release the aircraft after checking its airworthiness .
What is the difference between AME & Aeronautical Engineering?
AME is a 2-year licence course offered by DGCA approved institutes while aeronautical engineering is a regular 4-year degree course approved by AICTE . Both can be chosen after passing XII with PCM. AME equips one with practical
knowledge to keep the aircraft fit to fly whereas an aeronautical engineer studies design, structure, system and aerodynamics to increase flight safety and reduce overall cost. In India all the engineers in Civil Aviation are required to possess AME
licence as regulated by DGCA CAR 66. In other words, no aircraft can fly without an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer. Compelling all the organisations to recruit AME licence holders in order maintain the airworthiness of the aircraft. In short Engineers who did M Tech and PhD in Aeronautical Engineering / Other engineering are required to obtain an AME licence as per DGCA CAR 66 in order to release the aircraft.
