Part 66

What is Part-66?

Part 66 aviation regulations define the conditions under which a maintenance engineer is authorized to release an aircraft into service after a maintenance operation. The conditions required are defined by minimum education requirements (school leaving certificates, working language, etc.) as well as type rating qualifications for the aircraft or particular tasks. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is the body responsible for ensuring that National Competent Authorities e.g. Department Civil Aviation verify aircraft engineer license applications.

Candidates for part 66

Who needs to apply for a Part-66 license?

You need to apply for a Part-66 license if you: have never been licensed, but wish to further your career as an aircraft maintenance engineer wish to up- grade your existing Part-66 license to a higher category. How do I qualify for the license? There are three main steps to go through. Find out which modules you need for your requirements, and decide on an appropriate mode of study. Our Aviation Training Centre offers formal Part-66 training and coaching through PART66 module

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Careers:

  • Aircraft Engineers and Aircraft Mechanics work on a permanent basis as an employee of an airline or MRO organization. Many more are employed on a contract basis, working for themselves via recruitment businesses that provide staffing services for airlines or MROs.
  • Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers will need to prove their skills. As one, you will need a basic license (for instance a B1 EASA Part 66 licensed aircraft engineer's license). This will require many months of study (either about aircraft avionics for a B2 license or airframe & engine for a B1 license).
  • This will then need to be followed by further study on a type rating course taken at an approved center (for instance B747-400 type rating), and then practical experience on type to gain company approvals.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Jobs/ Fitter Jobs

Aircraft Fitter Jobs:

If you are a fitter you will need to search for Aircraft technicians jobs, aircraft mechanics jobs or aircraft fitters jobs (various terms are used interchangeably).

Line Maintenance Engineer Jobs:

Line Maintenance Engineer jobs will require a certified aircraft engineer to sign aircraft off 'on line'. The checks a line maintenance engineer carries out are light checks and are done during turn-around or overnight. You must have a license and approvals in order to sign a 'Certificate of Release to Service'.

Base Maintenance Engineer Jobs:

Base Maintenance Engineer jobs require a certified aircraft engineer to sign aircraft off. The nature of the work focusses on bigger aircraft maintenance projects (or heavy checks). It usually takes longer than a Line Check. Checks are categorized and a base maintenance engineer's job is typically carrying out C Checks in the hangar over a number of days or weeks.

Aircraft License Types:

Basic licenses are issued by the competent authority. License types are, for instance, an EASA Part 66 license or ICAO license. Licensed Engineers tend to specialize either in mechanics or avionics. Avionics Engineers (or EASA Part 66 B2 engineers) are able to issue CRS on avionics systems, while Airframe and Engine engineers (or A&C or B1 License Engineers).
