By acquiring a variety of engine and/or avionic system licenses, an AME improves their prospects of employment.Further the AME's are divided as a Line Maintenance Engineers and Flight Engineers depending on your type of license and expertise. Regular travel may not be part of the deal, but some aircraft maintenance engineers do lead an exciting life moving with aircraft, ensuring airworthy standards and safety of aircraft around flights.

Different Areas Of  AMEs Maintenance:

 Depending on their area of specialization and rated license, an aircraft maintenance engineer will inspect, maintain and/or repair the airframe and engine systems, the electrical and instrument systems, or the body of the aircraft. Alternatively, they may choose to work on sections of the aircraft only (rather than on the aircraft as a whole) overhauling, repairing and modifying components in a workshop. These tradespeople are often referred to as 'aircraft mechanics or technicians' who, traditionally, have not been subject to licensing. Upon completion of license these trade mechanics ranked as senior AMEs. Over a period of time, AMEs are ranked as chief engineers and line maintenance managers, and are responsible of supervising and maintaining airworthy standards in and around work place.


 On the aircraft, an aircraft maintenance engineer may maintain, inspect and rectifying the defects of landing gear, brakes, hydraulic systems, instrument and radio systems, autopilot, integrated flight or radar systems, environmental control systems or fire detection and prevention systems. Or they may carry out a variety of metal forming or joining processes using hand or power tools to produce or repair aircraft sheet-metal.

  AMEs in workshop, will be overhauling, testing and modifying airframe and engine components, gas turbines or piston engines, pneumatic and hydraulic devices, power distribution systems, or radio communications and navigation system components.

 'There's more variety in general aviation. You get to work on big and small, as well as new and old aircraft and there's more happening in terms of new developments - small turbine engines are getting smaller and better, and in avionics (radio) things are really changing.'

Sky Is The Limit

 Students have the opportunity to seek employment with various airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and repair/overhaul facilities in heavy maintenance hangers called as MRO's(Maintenance Repair Overhaul).

  The aviation industry is taking off, creating an unprecedented demand for trained Aircraft Maintenance Engineers.The work of aircraft maintenance engineer may not be exiting and glamorous but aircraft maintenance engineers are just as vital to the aviation industry. Without AMEs you can't even imagine to fly. Aircraft Maintenance Engineers are the nuts and bolts of aviation.
Are you passionate about aviation and always questioned, how an object sustains in air and like challenges, then  you made the right choice.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering:
Aircraft Maintenance Engineers(AMEs) are certified licensed engineers and registered under the Aviation Regulating Authority of that country (India it is DGCA). AMEs ensures the safety of an aircraft and are responsible for the release(certification) of aircraft after routine maintenance along with monitoring the condition of an aircraft and rectifying the snags or defects occurred during the flights. A qualified Aircraft Maintenance Engineer certifies that the aircraft, engines and components are fit for flight and is airworthy to fly without any jeopardize.

 In Aviation safety remains the biggest concern. Aircraft Maintenance Engineers will carryout periodic inspections and recognize the defects and fixing the problems. AMEs keep a log of  all repair parts and work done on an aircraft. AMEs work is not as glamorous as being a pilot's, but Aircraft Maintenance Engineers are vital to the aviation industry. You can't think or fly without AMEs.
