After the advent of the open sky policy, a number of Aircrafts have been imported to India (in addition to the indigenous production) for which maintenance facilities are made available in the country. To provide competitive maintenance facilities to Aircraft operators, supporting staff is necessary and they form the backbone of the aviation industry.

The key aircraft maintenance personnel are the Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs). They are primarily responsible for keeping the aircraft airworthy. The AMEs are the sole competent and authorized personnel to certify an aircraft fit to be airborne. To say, in a layman's language, without an AME's approval, no aircraft will fly.This speaks volumes for the training of talented youth of our country in this field.
