The AME syllabus in India is designed and structured by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Ministry of Civil Aviation, Govt. of India. AME is one of the unique international license based courses through which students can achieve their dream career in the private and government aviation sectors overseas. The student desiring to take admission must be 12th with PCM or have a 3 years engineering diploma from a recognized university/board. To get admission to one of the top AME institutes with up to 100% scholarship, students can apply for the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Common Entrance Exam (AME CEE) at www.amecee.in.
The AME syllabus may differ depending on the license so let us first discuss the category of the licenses in detail, which are such as:
B1: This license is related to certifying the airworthy condition of the mechanical parts of the aircraft. This is further classified based on the category of the engine in it:
