Section II Series E, Part VIII

SAME inducted first batch in July 2017 for three year AME ab-initio training course to cover Mechanical stream (Aeroplane and Powerplants) and Avionics stream (ES, IS & RN) in line with DGCA’s regulations as per Civil Aviation Requirements Section-2, Series E, Part – VIII, Revision – 6 dated 1st December 2016.
SAME is approved by DGCA to offer this AME training course in two streams – Mechanical (Aeroplane and Powerplants) – comprising of Light Aeroplane (LA), Heavy Aeroplane (HA), Piston Engine (PE), Jet Engine (JE) and Avionics stream – comprising of Electrical System (ES), Instrument System (IS) and Radio Navigation System (RN).
Mechanical stream trains students to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s Licence with respect to maintaining an aircraft’s Airframe and Engine’s. The Avionics stream trains students to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s Licence with respect to maintaining an aircraft’s Electrical System, Instrument System and Radio Navigation System.
SAME courses for both the streams are of a three year duration consisting of six semesters, each semester of six months. The sixth and final semester being of 6 months duration of the AME course for both Mechanical and Avionics streams is devoted to on-the-job-training (OJT).

Subjects

The subjects for study in both Mechanical and Avionics streams are laid down by the DGCA as per CAR Section 2 Series E Part 8. The Semester wise subjects are detailed below:

Practical Knowledge

An important part of the curriculum is the gaining of practical knowledge, in addition to class-room instruction. SAME has created twelve workshops/laboratories so as to impart the highest standards of practical training and skill development.
SAME will ensure that it follows the DGCA prescribed syllabus and curriculum and prepares the student to appear for the examinations for obtaining a license conducted by the DGCA.
SAME will also arrange for guest faculty from industry to address and interact with students on a regular basis.
Apart from the mandated course work, SAME will arrange for students to participate in training sessions covering personality development/communication skills, general knowledge and current affairs. SAME will also impart basic computer-skills training to students as part of the curriculum. Students will also be required to undertake group-tasks and assignments, and to make presentations both as a group and individually.

Classes

In five semesters covering a period of two and half years a total of 1250 hours approximately will be devoted to class-room instruction, and a total of 1250 hours approximately to practical training in workshops.
SAME students will follow a five-day week. Classes will typically be held in the morning hours and practical instruction in the afternoons, however, this may be varied depending on requirement.
SAME students will receive four breaks every year. A summer break of six weeks, a spring break and an autumn break of one week each, and a winter break of two weeks. Additionally, SAME will observe 10 holidays including three national holidays.
Attendance is compulsory and will be taken during all the classes. A minimum attendance of 80% is compulsory as per DGCA regulations, without which a student may not be permitted to appear for the examinations.

Evaluation

Examinations will be conducted at the end of every semester in line with the regulations of the DGCA and training policies. Students must secure 70% marks in each paper in order to pass, and become eligible for the next semester. Students who fail to score 70% may be permitted to write the re-examination.
An informal evaluation of students will also be undertaken, based on their participation in class and their performance in class, home and group assignments.
Parents/guardians of students will be regularly advised about the progress of the students in terms of the examination results, attendance, behaviour, class participation, home and class assignments.
