All about EASA Part 147 | Aircraft Maintenance Engineering

Some people tend to confuse the EASA Part 147 Approved AME course and EASA Part 66. They think that the training is the same or rather what is covered in EASA Part 147 is similar to what is covered in Part 66. To be honest, these two courses are very different from each other. EASA Part 66 is entailed to cover all aspects related to the training itself and nothing else while EASA Part 147 deals with the standards which are supposed to be followed by the different training centres that deliver this kind of training.

EASA Part 66 is entailed to cover all aspects related to the training itself and nothing else while EASA Part 147 deals with the standards which are supposed to be followed by the different training centres that deliver this kind of training.

EASA Part-147 approved course is a section among many others in the European Standard that dictates and covers in-depth all the guidelines to be followed in aviation training. To be specific, EASA Part 147 focuses on safety and airworthiness of aircraft. This course describes all the requirements that an organisation has to meet with no compromise for it to become one of the approved training organisations. Also, it has to meet all this dictates to be able to deliver training and examinations in EASA Part-66and EASA Part 147 itself. After the training in EASA Part 147 course, you will be able to add a specification aircraft maintenance type training in your Aircraft Maintenance Licence. This is because, after completing your basic training, you secure an Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Licence. Afterwards, when you choose to major your training on a specific type of aircraft like A320 Type Rating training, this type of training will be added to your basic licence.

 What is EASA Part 147 training?

According to EASA Part-147 regulations, Aircraft Type training is divided into 2 major divisions. We have Practical training and theoretical training. The theoretical training deals with the outline of the airframe. You also study on specific aircraft engines, the aircraft operating systems and generating a basic overview of controls, the indicators, the principal components, servicing and minor troubleshooting. In addition, a student undertakes a theoretical training on the operations, descriptions, and location of components, their removal and installation. On the pieces of training, the troubleshooting procedures as per the maintenance manual are taught in the theoretical training.

On the other hand, the practical training involves applying what you have learned in class-books and drawings into the real aircraft or in the field. All the knowledge acquired is put into reality with the help of professional instructors. The time taken for each type of training varies from 20-25 days for the theory training and for the practical training, it takes you 10-15 days only. However, the duration taken relies entirely on the simplicity or complexity of the type of aircraft you are studying.

What are EASA Part 147 requirements?

For you to be eligible for EASA part 147 Aircraft Maintenance Course, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Attain a Minimum age on admission is 15years
  • Acquired a Secondary School Certificate(SSC) & A School Leaving Certificate(SLC)
  • A Passport is fundamental as well.
  • A medical fitness certificate issued by a Registered Medical Practitioner.

The rest of the requirements depends on the type of training you choose after winding up with the general EASA Part 147 training. Type training requires you to specify on a certain aircraft.

With all that said, it’s very important to consider where to pursue your part 147 training. It is very wise to look for the best college or institutes.

Importance of Theoretical Education & Practical training in AME

Over the past 3 decades, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering has attracted so many scholars as to the best shot for a good career. Backed by the endless list of job placement and a vast number of various career opportunity in the Aviation Industry, it has come to the harmonious conclusion that the best course to go for is Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Course. In the world, different institutions offer either DGCA or EASA approved AME courses but in India, the most reputed group of institutions the IIA Group of Institutions. The relentless and dynamic growth of AME has secured stable career opportunities for its partakers jam-packed with amazing financial benefits and social developments. However, the aviation sector has also had an unending demand for AMEs with excellent skills and theoretical knowledge which would definitely give them certified licenses in the field.

This calls for proper practical and theoretical training in different AME colleges to enable a student to secure a good career after studies. Generally, the course takes 3-5 years of your time to finish up studies and get certified. It is very possible to undergo all the required years of training and still fail to secure a job. This is because, if they do not possess the appropriate practical skills in schools as they study, they won’t be able to apply their theoretical knowledge in real work. This will force their employers to fire them. This means that both the teaching and methodologies used by the lecturers in the colleges are equally important for each student.

The DGCA and EASA have put it a mandatory requirement in the curriculum that any institution offering Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Training, must cover the theoretical and practical training in a thorough and equal manner. Both must be a perfect mix to equip the student to be in a better position to secure a lifetime career. The practical training mainly involves applying theoretical knowledge on live aircraft in the workshops and understanding how they operate in a better perspective. In so doing, the students will need a computer-based training to get the latest knowledge on how aircraft operate. The computer technology helps them to be well updated on the minor changes or advancement in the aircraft’s operating systems.

Theoretical training mainly involves studying in class or in the libraries where a professional explain different systems and all you need to know as an AME verbally. You will need to go to a workshop to make sense of this theory. Nowadays, employers seek candidates who can work in a changing environment and have the ability to apply their theoretical knowledge in actual work. The candidate who is able to integrate their theoretical and practical training to work harmoniously as one, always have a better chance to employment than those who can’t.

Other institutions incorporate On Job Training for their AME students to educate them on how to implement their training in real-life situations. This boosts the confidence of the students and helps them gain some experience in the procedure.

IIA Group of Institutions is one of the best AME College in India that offers the best integrated theoretical, practical and On Job Training. Admissions for 2019 are ongoing and this would be a golden chance to secure a lifetime career.

WHAT ARE EASA-66 & EASA-147?

The Aircraft Maintenance is a critical activity and hence is highly regulated. This is done to ensure safety by stringently following the norms for optimizing flight functionality & minimizing risks. Anyone choosing a career in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering for global platforms must undertake Aviation Courses after 10+2 to conform to Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) Part 66, Certifying Staff, issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

AMC Part 66 has four levels of authorization:

a) Level 1: General Familiarization i.e Unlicensed

b) Level 2: Category A Ramp & Transit, Has the ability to only certify own work – only tasks with documented training.

c) Level 3: Category B1 (electro-mechanical) and/or B2 (Avionics): Line Certifying Staff and Base Maintenance Supporting Staff, Has the ability to certify all works relating to aircraft/engine.

d) Level 4: Category C Base Maintenance Certifying Staff, Has the ability to certify all works performed on an aircraft/engine but only limited to base maintenance.
