Would you like to be part of the aviation sector?
Aerodynamics Academy, leading flight school in Europe, trains you with all the relevant knowledge to work in all aircraft systems and maintenance
The Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) profession is in high demand, both nationally and internationally.
If what you are looking for is a promising career, you’ll be excited to know that the job of an aircraft mechanic is key to any airline.
You will obtain the professional diploma endorsed by EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and regulated by the DGAC (General Direction of Civil Aviation), with which you can work through Europe, South America and part of Asia.
What does an Aircraft Maintenance Technician do?
An aeronautical technician is responsible for inspecting and performing maintenance on aircraft to ensure an adequate flight navigation and safety. The job of an aircraft mechanic is of paramount importance for any airline.
Advantages of working as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician once you get the AMT Licence
What does the course of Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) consist of?
Aircraft Maintenance Technicians perform both scheduled and unscheduled aeronautical maintenance of engines, structures, and systems of an aircraft. What’s more, they are prepared to build and assemble aircraft components.
To attain the necessary training, we deliver 2.400 hours of lessons, including a practical part that involves real planes from our fleet. This prepares our students to work in all types of aircraft systems and their maintenance, as well as to carry out the real job they will be entrusted to do in the future.
In the course of approximately 2 years, you will be able to obtain your Aircraft Maintenance Licence, which enables you to work for aeronautical construction companies or in the field of aeronautical maintenance.
Maintenance Technician theoretical training
The theoretical portion of the training consists of 1440 hours, including 13 modules and official exams, to obtain the LMA B1.1 (planes with jet engines) and the LMA B2 (avionics) licences.
There are 10 shared modules and 3 specific ones that aim at each licence.
Maintenance Technician practical training
The practical training that we deliver at Aerodynamics Academy for both licences will allow you to complete your training and acquire the essential knowledge and skills to sign off repair works, achieving in this way a superior professional category. This part of the training consists of 960 hours, split into 6 daily hours of classes delivered from Monday to Friday over a 2-year period.
It is important to point out that passing the exams of each of the modules is not enough to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Licence. Prior to obtaining your licence, you shall prove two years of experience in aircraft maintenance, which will depend on the received training, plus the chosen licence category.
LMA B1 and B2 licences allow you to work with an official qualification as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician.
The LMA is a licence issued by EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency.) This means that you will be qualified and certified to issue aptitude certificates regarding the service, and to act as supporting staff in the chosen category across the territories that are subject to EASA requirements (Europe, South America and part of Asia.)
In Aerodynamics Academy we train you for the following subcategories within the European Aircraft Maintenance Licence (LMA):
B1 category: it enables you to sign off release certificates after performing certain maintenance work, such as structural work on an aircraft, its engines and on mechanical and electrical systems. The B1 category is in turn, divided into 4 different subcategories:
- 1: jet-engine planes
- 2: piston-engine planes
- 3: jet-engine helicopters
- 4: piston-engine helicopters
Each B1 subcategory includes the inherent A licence subcategory.
B2 category: it enables you to sign off release certificates after performing maintenance work on an aircraft’s avionics and electrical systems. Along with performing avionics electrical work on engines and mechanical systems that need safety checks, scheduled maintenance work and defect rectifications can be conducted.
The licence for the B2 category does not include any A licence subcategory.
