EASA Part 66 Licence is a common and mutually acceptable standard for the certification of aircraft maintenance mechanics worldwide. The main aspect of the Part 66 AML is the demonstration of strengthening knowledge and competence. Our course offers this combination according to the relevant EASA licence category and subcategory.
● Category B: Category B is the main licence qualification for aircraft maintenance staff under EASA approval. Category B Licences are available in both mechanical and avionics disciplines:
● Subcategory B1.1 – mechanical (aircraft structure, jet engine, mechanical and electrical systems) for turbine powered aeroplanes.
By obtaining the Category B1.1 Licence the privileges and function of a technician include defect troubleshooting / rectification, aircraft mechanical, electrical and electronics systems inspection and maintenance. These require detailed description, operation, component location, removal / installation and testing procedures in order to maintain the airworthiness of the aircraft.
Module examination, closed book, multiple-choice and / or essay questions examination type.
Pass mark per module examination is 75%.
A list of each module taught for B1.1 category is presented below:
● Module 1 - MATHEMATICS
● Module 2 - PHYSICS
● Module 3 - ELECTRICAL FUNDAMENTALS
● Module 4 - ELECTRONIC FUNDAMENTALS
● Module 5 - DIGITAL TECHNIQUES ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENT SYSTEMS
● Module 6 - MATERIALS AND HARDWARE
● Module 7A - MAINTENANCE PRACTICES
● Module 8 - BASIC AERODYNAMICS
● Module 9A - HUMAN FACTORS
● Module 10 - AVIATION LEGISLATION
● Module 11A - TURBINE AEROPLANE AERODYNAMICS, STRUCTURES AND SYSTEMS
● Module 15 - GAS TURBINE ENGINE
● Module 17A - PROPELLER
Once a student has successfully completed this course, he/she will need to undergo a two years maintenance experience in an approved maintenance organisation before applying to an EASA member state Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for obtaining the B 1.1 Licence. Our customer satisfaction department will arrange for this in our partner maintenance company Aviaseven and other affiliated maintenance organisations.
Once the B1.1 Licence has been obtained after a total of four years, the holder has many options to consider:
1. Attend type rating courses for Boeing, Airbus or other type of aircraft, and thus increasing worldwide employment opportunities.
2. Attend additional specialised courses and strengthen his/hers professional status in the aviation market worldwide.
3. Enroll in a foundation for a Master's degree which will provide the holder with additional advantages of pursuing a managerial position in the aviation industry worldwide.
Aerospace engineering never ends. The technological progress is so fast that the aviation industry is continuously seeking for the best professionals.
