Hyderabad College of Aviation Technology (HCAT) has CAR-147(Basic) DGCA approval which enable us to conduct AME course under categories,
1) B1.1 - Mechanical (Turbine Aeroplane)
2) B2 - Avionics (Electrical system-ES, Instrument system-IS & Radio Navigation-RN)
HCAT prepares the students to appear for their DGCA Modular examinations in the B1 – Mechanical category and B2 - Avionics category.
There is a full time 4year (8 semesters) Bachelor in Engineering programme conducted by Noorul Islam Centre for Higher Education in which the students are awarded with Bachelor in Engineering (B.E.) degree by the Noorul Islam Centre for Higher Education (Deemed to be University under section 3 of the UGC Act 1956). In the first year the students are taught basic subjects common with other engineering trades. From second year onwards they come to the core subjects of AME. The syllabus of B.E. is formulated in such a way that it coincides with the syllabus prescribed by DGCA for conducting AME course.
And finally when the student complete 4 years, he/she is awarded B.E. in AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING Certificate by Noorul Islam University as well as the AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING Certificate (Category B1.1 or B2) from Hyderabad College of Aviation Technology.
Mechanical aircraft maintenance engineers inspect, maintain and repair the mechanical components of aircraft. They focus on a specific section of the aircraft, or on one particular maintenance process. They conduct pre-flight checks of aircraft systems to detect and diagnose defective equipment in order to prevent malfunction. They work in a range of environments such as indoors in workshops or the hangar, outdoors on the airfield, or on the flight line where aircraft await departure. Mechanical Aircraft maintenance engineers inspect and work on engines and landing gear, and accessories such as brakes, hydraulic systems, pneumatic devices, fuel control pumps, valves and air conditioning systems.
Avionics Aircraft maintenance engineers inspect, maintain and repair the various electrical/electronic and structural components of planes and helicopters. They work in a range of environments such as indoors in workshops or the hangar, outdoors on the airfield, or on the flight line where aircraft await departure. Aircraft maintenance engineers use power tools such as pneumatic drills, grinders and riveters. Hoists are used to remove engines and other aircraft components, which can then be dismantled and tested using specialised equipment to check electrical signals and corrosion.
