EASA Part 66 Modular Training

Posted by Neil Fortune on Oct 31, 2018 2:19 PM

At the start and midway point of the year Air Service Training (AST) schedules EASA Part 66 Modular Training courses which are ideal for experienced aircraft engineers seeking Licence training.

From January 2019 AST will be delivering training and examinations towards the EASA Part 66 B1.1 Fixed Wing Turbine Engine licence category in addition to training and examinations towards the B1.3 Rotary Wing Turbine engine licence category. In the Modular Course plan detailed below you will notice the examinations take place on the final Friday of each module.

Our B1.1 Training course has a duration of 22 training weeks whereas our B1.3 programme has a shorter duration of 21 training weeks.

This training course is entirely theory based and owing to the intensive nature of the course it is recommended candidates have a minimum of three years practical aircraft maintenance experience. For candidates who have little/no previous aircraft maintenance experience we would recommend our Approved Course option.

As we enter in to the middle of the year we have further Zero to Hero Courses which are for the B1.1 Fixed Wing Turbine Engine (22 weeks), B1.2 Fixed Wing Piston Engine (22 weeks) and also the B2 Avionics Licence (25 training weeks) category.

Should you only require individual modules rather than the full Zero to Hero programme I can confirm we do accept the booking of individual modules.

For further information on the course fees and how to make an application please contact us.

The areas where the largest predicted need for maintenance personnel is in the Asian Pacific region, North America, Europe and the Middle East.

The basic working week for an Aircraft Engineer is normally between 37 - 40 hours however, there is a probability of additional hours to ensure the work is completed in as safely and timely manner as possible to ensure the aircraft can return to service. Salaries of an Aircraft Engineer will vary depending upon the employer and country of employment, a typical starting salary would be approximately £22,000 and can range upwards of £60,000+.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects a massive 7.8 Billion passengers to travel by air in 2036, this is double the estimated amount of travelers in 2017.
