Training course objective
Objective of the training course for PART 66 category A is to enable the candidate to acquire knowledge and skills which permit the him/her to issue certificates of release to service following minor scheduled line maintenance and simple defect rectification within the limits of tasks specifically endorsed on the certification authorisation referred to in point 145.A.35 of Annex II (Part-145).
Category A is subdivided into four subcategories relative to combinations of aeroplanes, helicopters, turbine and piston engines. These subcategories are:
— A1 Aeroplanes Turbine
— A2 Aeroplanes Piston
— A3 Helicopters Turbine
— A4 Helicopters Piston
Minimum requirements to take up the training course or part of the course
The minimum requirements that the applicant should fulfil to take up the training or part of the training course are the following:
The training course include: theoretical training, basic theoretical knowledge examinations, practical training and practical knowledge assessment.
Training is conducted as closely as possible to the real world of day-to-day aviation operations. Thanks to our close ties to AMO’s such as JAT Tehnics and others, we are able to incorporate a lot of operational and maintenance data into our courses.
All our instructors are highly-qualified aircraft engineers, and their many years of aviation experience go into the training they provide.
List of Subjests / Examinations and assessment
Theoretical examinations are conducted using the multi-choice question format and essay questions. Number of questions and time allowed per subject is given in the following table:
