Students aspiring to become aircraft maintenance engineers are required to join and train under an institute approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Government of India to get the AME licence. As per DGCA Civil Aviation Requirements (CAR) 66, a student needs to complete all the module examinations in order to earn the licence to become an AME. Only an AME license holder is eligible to work in the aviation industry as AME, to perform certain tasks.
Candidates who even have a BSc, BE/B.Tech, ME/MTech or PhD in Aviation/ Aeronautical/Aerospace degree, to become an aircraft maintenance engineer and get an AME licence, it is required by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation to appear for the course and earn the licence as per CAR 66. Only a licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer is authorised to certify an aircraft fit to fly.
Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is a licence-based program offered by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) through approved institutes while Aeronautical Engineering is a 4-year engineering course recognised by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Aspiring students can join either course after completing 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM) as main subjects. The aircraft maintenance engineering program includes academic and practical knowledge on keeping an aircraft airworthy while aeronautical engineering deals with the design, manufacturing, aerodynamics and safety of air-capable machines. aircraft maintenance engineers are required to earn an AME licence as per CAR 66 and they are responsible for ensuring the airworthiness of every aircraft before take off. It is also important to note that engineers who did BTech, MTech or PhD in any engineering discipline are required to obtain an AME licence as per DGCA CAR 66 to officially become an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.
To get an AME licence, the candidates must go through aircraft maintenance engineering training, both academic and practical, at any institute approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). This trains them to appear for the module examinations conducted by the DGCA and on completion of these, eligible students will be awarded the AME licence.
No. DGCA is not conducting, nor associated with any organisation to conduct any kind of entrance examination to admit students to AME institutions. However, institutes are allowed to conduct their own entrance examinations. SSAT is an entrance examination conducted by us to admit students to their group of institutions. Sha-Shib Group is the largest in South Asia for providing the best AME training.
Depending on their aptitude and interest, students lock on to the best career options on completing basic education. Equal importance has to be given while choosing the best course and a well-suited institute to pursue the program. Unlike any other institutes in India, Sha-Shib Group offers the best-in-class academic and practical training experience to students, making them industry-ready in every manner. Being the largest group in south Asia for imparting the best AME training, Sha-Shib Group owns multiple MROs and functional aircraft which aids the students to get hands-on experiences at the time of training itself. Sha-Shib Group also has the best AME engineers for mentoring and coaching the students, to bring out the best in them. This way, the students will get adequate practical training, expert guidance from industry specialists and a world-class academic experience to shape their future.
Excellent!!! this is the best entrance exam I have gone through for aviation studies. The test was very relevant and have a very good solution for my career choice. Excellent choice for my future studies.
I am writing to thank you for your generous SSAT scholarship. I was very happy that I got 84% on the SSAT exam and it got me the scholarship. It also lightened my financial burden, which allowed me to focus on my dream career in the aviation industry.
I am a student of the 2021 batch at IAE, Bhopal. I had given the SSAT test under the largest AME institution in South Asia and the test conducted by Sha-Shib Group gave me wings to achieve my dreams, I scored 90 out of 100.
I am Swagatika Patra. I appeared for SSAT exam and scored 82 per cent, by which I was granted with scholarship. It gave me a firm support for my academic study and was also a good experience for my knowledge check.
I appeared for SSAT entrance a month before getting admission. I got 88 out of 100. It was a kind of knowledge testing exam conducted by the Sha-Shib Group of Institutions. Questions were ok and any above average student can go through it easily and secure a scholarship.
Info about applying for the exam is available on the website of SSAT. I'm currently in my first year pursuing an AME with Btech at IAE with a scholarship. The admission process was very simple and went smoothly. Everyone at the institute was very helpful in every possible way.
Achieving the aviation dream is quite impossible for a student from a middle-class family. But ShaShib Group is helping me to pursue this dream. There SSAT exam quite helped me financially. I'm forever thankful to ShaShib.
The scholarship is provided in form of fee concession/ discount/ waiver in total tuition fee to selected students at any of the institutes of Sha-Shib Group for the courses available at its different campuses, across India.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) is a licence-based course offered by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) through approved institutes while Aeronautical Engineering is a 4-year engineering bachelor degree course recognised by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). The basic eligibility to join both courses is 10+2 with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM) as core subjects. The AME course imparts the aspirants with in-depth knowledge on the repair and maintenance of aircraft and its components whereas the aeronautical engineering course deals with the design, structure, aerodynamics and safety of an aircraft. In India, to seek employment as an AME, it is mandatory to undergo training and possess an AME licence as regulated by DGCA Civil Aviation Rule (CAR) 66. Engineers who did MTech and/or PhD in Aeronautical Engineering/other engineering are required to obtain an AME licence as per DGCA CAR 66 in order to earn the AME licence and seek employment as an aircraft maintenance engineer.
