Want to make a career in Aviation?

Aircraft maintenance engineering is one of the best courses for students who are interested to pursue a career in the Aviation sector.

Aircraft maintenance engineering is an economical career option for those who are looking to make a career in the aviation industry. While there are a lot of opportunities in this sector, a career in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering can be rewarding in multiple ways. The profession involves maintenance and up-gradation of aircraft and assures the safety of the air vehicles.

Scope of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering

With the speed growth trajectory projected by the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the demand is also getting high for trained professionals in the aviation industry, including aircraft maintenance engineers. Hence, the scope of my career in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is also soaring. According to experts, statistically, one operational aircraft leads to the creation of at least 28 jobs for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation states that there is a requirement of 7.54 Lakh licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers worldwide.

Roles and Responsibility

Aircraft maintenance engineers are the most trained and qualified engineers who receive a licensed certificate issued by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Government of India. To pursue a career in aircraft maintenance engineering, aspiring professionals should not only have theoretical knowledge but also need technical as well as practical experience.

The main responsibilities of the aircraft maintenance engineers include making repairs, troubleshooting problems, conducting inspections, and make upgrades to aircraft. Before the take-off of the aircraft, the aircraft maintenance engineers have to inspect the air vehicle and sign the certificate ensuring safety.

Along with these, the aircraft maintenance engineers are also expected to keep themselves up to date with the latest trends and techniques available in the aviation industries and we have to carry out regular upgrades in the aircraft along with the maintenance and make some regular responsibilities.
