Aircraft Maintenance Engineering

Globally, it is projected that more than 33000 new aircraft will be inducted into service by 2030 – which by implication would create a requirement of 5 lakh new jobs for Licensed Aircraft Engineers (LAE) or Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME) and other jobs which are directly or indirectly related to Aeronautics and the Aviation industry.

Aircraft Engineers or Aircraft Maintenance Engineers must ensure that the Aircraft is maintained in full-serviceable condition otherwise known as “air-worthy” for the safety of its passengers and users at all times. Aircraft Engineers are trained to identify the problem and replace the problem.
