Career in Aircraft maintenance

World-wide, the business of aircraft maintenance is enormous, and is set to expand. The approximate number of aeroplanes currently in service world-wide is around 500,000 passenger and cargo aircraft and about four million smaller private aircraft used for business or pleasure.

India is one of the fastest developing countries in the world. Due to the liberalisation policies of the government, there is tremendous growth in civil aviation. Many private airlines and corporations viz., Air India, Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, Air Sahara and Air Deccan are operating today with very good operating revenues. To meet the growing need of the passenger airlines, cargo aircrafts, private air taxi operators, business and corporate jets, there exists an urgent need for aircraft maintenance engineers.
The aviation industry has two main branches: flying branch and maintenance branch. While pilots fly the aircraft, aircraft maintenance engineers are concerned with the maintenance of the aircraft. An aircraft maintenance engineer has to obtain a licence from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

  1. madarchod dgca sabse bada harami hai, jisne in institute ko approval de rakha hai, behanchod isame sala career to barwad karo hai saath hi saath money or life bhi, student suicide nahi karega to aur kya karega.behanchod kamse kam degree to de diya hota, maine bhi ye course kiya loan le ke.. Aur ajj mere paas pchtava ke siva kuch nahi hai.

  2. This course is only fit for one who have the potential to be the very best.. Because you have to fight among 8000 students to be in 200 of the students who gets employment every year..in this field. So, only join if u have the confidence that you will get into 200. Otherwise future is very dark.. And if u r successful in being with this 200 persons then ur life is set to a higher class

  3. bhai aap sabhi logo ka bahut bahut shukriya jo aapne ye coments kar k logo ko ame or dgca k bare me jagrook kiya. Mene isi saal (2013) 12th ki hai, or me bhi bombay flying club me admission lena chahta tha, but my father is denied me to take admission in ame, he is a farmer, i thought he doesn’t know nothing about air industry and i conviced him again n again that there is a good opportunity in this feild to go through these article, i was getting stubborn with my parents to take admission in ame while i have secured good rank in jee mains. I’m very very thankful to u all to save me from going to hell.

  6. in my opinion ame is a good course.but another thing is that it is not a degree or diploma.it’s just a license course but if u have talent in this ame u will get job sure.if you have completed ame aand searching for job.first u work in any airport,then get a minimum 2 years experience and search job in airlines.

  8. ACTUALLY THIS AME 3 YEAR COURSE FOR ONLY DGCA TO MAKE MONEY FOR LICENCE EXAM YEARLY 3 TIME THEY ARE CONDUCTING 500 PER HEAD BUT PASSED ALSO NO VALUE I HAVE 3 , WASTED MY VALUABLE 3 YEAR AND NOW HAVE A 6 LACK BANK LOAN IN THIS AGE HOW I WILL REPAY THIS A MOUNT I DON’T KNOW SO BE AWARE OF AME COURSE

  9. There is hard struggle.but u don’t know the future. Every time there is uncertainty. I will advise not to come without knowing the reality

  10. Hello all. Those students who studied hard and passed 12th exam, i would not recommend AME course. Reason?
    GO AHEAD-
    1.After spending 2/3 years of your precious time(when your knowledge and brain was sharp) , you will be given a license, which is neither a degree nor diploma. so basically you are a 12th class passed guy.
    2.DGCA holds exams which are called papers, pass marks-70 or above out of 100. Each paper fees rs500, getting 69 is fail, want to get any paper recheck/ clear doubts etc.? Always remember DGCA IS AN AUTONOMOUS BODY.
    3.Then, without experience nobody will hire you. And without some serious political or economical power forget it. CORRUPTION & NEPOTISM ARE A BIG PART OF INDIAN AVIATION. dont even try to deny it.
    4. Even if you get a job(Hundreds of Colleges and thousands of passouts before and after you), your job pay and stability is not certain.
    5.If you meet above points, good, and those who didnt, you have spent your PRECIOUS TIME ,Lacs of money, without a PROPER DEGREE or educational qualification(after spending 3or more years!) and frustration.
    LASTLY, To those rare people who struggled and made it to the top legally, fairly and have a clear conscience(that is truthfully) ,you deserve RESPECT.

  21. frnds i m doing dis course plz help me what will i do i m in confusion con’t think abouy its future plz help me i m in tension i hv got loan frm bank i hv not good background

  22. Hai this is a fake news….
    I have studied AME, i did’t get any job ….
    Also I lost my cash and 3 years … my future spoiled bcz its not a degree course so i cannot apply for any other job ….
    this is the worst course in this world …

  23. Dear friends if you want to see ur future bright plzz don’t join ame course if someone want to change this plzz consider our course as diploma or degree transfer it to education department decrease the no of colleges approaching people for this course traninees shall be paid during they training period at least kisi ki mhenaat ka paisa maat khaao yaar #amesuck #dgca culprit for this too much rules implementation #hence leads to croupption

  24. I have also completed this course in 2008.till today i have just an experience of 15 months.and still no one values my experience.when i go for other job in indigo airlines for ground handling.they saaid there is no provision to take a ame in this.

  25. To all student who are dreaming to become AME and have a good high paying career ,this is all sham.Institutes & corrupt dgca officials giving clearances to these hundreds of institutes are just destroying young lives.
    the no of vacancy in this so called booming industry is pathetic.
    even after having all 3 papers and rt licence my brother is still looking for job since last 06 years.to get job you must have high reference of some
    one from DGCA.
    just dont read these paid up article`s of boom in aviation.i am also in aviation industry and there is only exploitation of young people here,
    and actually salary are dipping.After all does airlines shuts in boom time.Here anybody will tell you that indian aviation is killed by EX Aviation Minister Praful Patel.
    just go to any other field, doing AME course will either make you educated jobless or even if with great great great luck you get job you will be working on 10,000. rs or even unpaid for year or two.

  26. Admission ke samay bahut tel lagayenge par inko sidhe na bolna aur last date ye hai vo hai lekin sach baat ye hai ki ye admission us date ke baad 2 months chalata raha kyo ki inko sirf paiso se Matlab hai baaki kuch nahi mujhe lagta hai iss monoj talware ka poora khandan iss colg ke paiso se chalata hai..aur main baat ye hai ki mess ke paise kuch students ke rah gaye to unko exam me baithne nahi diya jayega yese bolate hai saale muze batao iss mess aur colg ka kya sambhand….

  30. DEAR FRIENDS
    IF YOU DONT WANT TO SPOIL YOUR FUTURE NEVER GO FOR AME.
    ITS A CRAP,NOBODY WILL GET ANY GOVERMENT JOB EXCEPT IN BSF AFTER COMPLETING AME
    THERE ARE ALSO A LIMITED POSTS IN BORDER SECURITY FORCE AS THEY HIRED THEIR TECHNICIANS FROM INDIAN NAVY EX SEVICE MEN…AND A HUGE CORRUPTION AND POLITICAL APPROACH REQUIRED.EVEN QUALIFYING EXAM U DIDNT GET YOUR NAME IN THE FINAL MERIT LIST….
    FOR OTHER PSU’S LIKE HAL,PAWAN HANS HAVE LIMITED SEATS ALMOST
    AFTER WASTING 3 YEARS U WILL GET NOTHING…..U DIDNT APPLY FOR JUNIOR ENGINEER EXAM IN ELECTRICAL MECHANICAL ELECTRONICS ETC RELATED FIELDS BECAUSE ITS A LICENCE COURES NOT DIPLOMA EVEN
    U DIDNT APPLY ANY SSC ,,CIVIL SERVICES ,BANK PO,IBPS.STATE PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISIONS FOR GROUP 1 AND 2 POSTS.
    YOU HAVE NOTHING IN YOUR HAND AFTER COMPLITING THIS.
    SO IN MY OPINION DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS COURSE…..
    EVEN ITI STUDENTS ARE BETTER THAN AME STUDENTS….
    YOUR LIFE WILL STUCK IF U HAVE DONE THIS COURSE
    IT DOESNT MATTER HOW MUCH REPUTATION OF YOUR COLLEGE HAVE..ALL ARE FUKING CRAPS..AFTER COMPLETING AME THEY EVEN DIDNT RECOGNISE YOU…..

    NOW FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DONE THIS COURSE WHAT HAVE TO DONE NOW TO GET BACK TO TRACK:
    FILL OPEN GRADUATION FORM FROM IGNOU OR ANY OTHER UNIVERSITY RECOGNISED BY UGC AND COMPLETE YOUR GRADUATION IN ANY FIELDS ALMOST LESS THAN 5000 RS.AFTER THAT PREPARE BANKING EXAMS AND DEFINETLY U WILL GET A GOOD GOVT OR PSU JOB TO MAKE YOUR LIFE BACK TO TRACK.OR U CAN GO FOR MBA ALSO AFTER GRADUATION..
    IN MY OPINION THIS IS ONLY WAY U HAVE TO COME OUT FROM THIS SHIT.
    THERE IS A ANOTHER OPTION AS BSE IN AME PROVIDED BY SOME INSTITUTIONS 6 MONTH COURSE AFTER AME,BUT I DONT KNOW HOW MUCH LEGAL IT IS OR IS RECOGONISED BY UGC OR NOT..I HAVE FILLED A RTI REGARDING THIS SOON THEY WILL PROVIDE WHOLE INFORMATION REGARDING THIS….

    THEIR IS A ANOTHER WAY TO CAME OUT FROM THIS WHOLE SHIT…
    CONTACT WITH ALL AME FRIENDS IN YOUR CIRCLE YOU HAVE AND THEN MAKE A GROUP…THEN DO MAKE A DRAMA OR BOKH HADTAL AT JANTER MANTER AND GET SOME MEDIA ATTRACTION OR WRIGHT A LETTER TO PMO. AND THEN I AM SURE SHRI PM MODI GOVT WILL HELP YOU. AS THEY CAN CHANGE THIS COURSE TO DEGREE.
    I AM 100 % ENSURE ABOUT IT.
    BECAUSE I HAVE COMPLETED MY BTECH IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND I M ENSURE THAT THE SYLLABUS I HAVE SEE IN AME HAS A VERY HIGH STANDARD AS COMPARED TO DIMPLOMA ALMOST NEAR EQUIVALENT TO BTECH.AND LAST YEAR I HELP SOME AME STUDENTS TO PREPARED FOR A GOVT EXAM BSF TECHNICIAN
    AS THEY QUALIFY EXAM ..EVERYTHING…BUT AT THE FINAL LIST THEY GOVT OFFICALS AND EX SERVICE MEN MAKE SOME CORRUPTION..BECAUSE THEY WILL PROVIDE U NOTHING AFTER EXAM. U HAVE TO RECORD TO FILLED CASE ALSO..
    ONE MUST HAVE A GOOD POLITICAL APPROACH AFTER COMPLETING EXAM..BECAUSE WHOLE GAME STARTS AFTER QUALIFYING EXAM.
