Civil Aviation is a highly regulated industry offering a broad range of careers in the design, operation, maintenance and support of aircraft. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA regulates all aviation activity within Europe and delegates authority for implementation of its regulations to National Aviation Authorities such as the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UKCAA).
Under these regulations aircraft maintenance engineers are trained and licensed to maintain the aircraft to industry standard. The regulations define a number of categories for the licence based upon the range of work of /preferred discipline and aircraft type and in each case the engineer will need to complete training on the basic topics to qualify for a licence AND Type Training (theory and practical) for the specific aircraft.
AeCAT is a Maintenance Training Organisation (MTO) approved by EASA/UKCAA under EASA Part 147. We focus on provision of the specific Type Training for the aircraft listed in our approvals.
We do not provide Basic Training but have associate companies that do.
