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. All Scheduled or Unscheduled Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul can be carried out only by Aircraft Engineers and Technicians who have obtained their License.

To become an Aircraft Engineer or Technician in India one must obtain a “License” issued by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Ministry of Civil Aviation, Govt. of India. 

Since 1986, Hindustan Aviation Academy (HAA) has been providing Aircraft Maintenance Engineering courses approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation under the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Govt. of India.
