Aircraft Maintenance



Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is one of the most fascinating careers for young talented students. It is a dynamic and vibrant sector of the global aviation industry, which underpins enormous commercial and social benefits. The aviation industry is highly competitive and needs well-trained individuals capable of working effectively within a rapidly changing environment. Established in 1995, The Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Institute of RG Aviation (a unit Rajiv Gandhi Aviation Academy) is a premier AME training Institute, approved by Director General of Civil Aviation (D.G.C.A.), India. We are dedicated to grooming a breed of efficient, knowledgeable, and skilled engineering professionals to cater to the ever-growing demand of the Aviation Industry.

We offer a fully integrated Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) course. Our highly experienced team of instructors and practical trainers conduct practice-oriented, advanced technical training courses that provide the knowledge and skills you need for a career in the aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul sector of the Aviation Industry. Our training program is renowned for its consistency and relevance to the fast-changing demands of the aviation industry. We have trained students from India and around the world to help them achieve their dreams of becoming an Aircraft maintenance engineer (AME).

In addition to some of the most advanced training facilities and infrastructure, we have a fleet of world-renowned Cessna aircrafts, and our own hangar, where practical training is offered to the students. As there will be several expert hands at the hangar, the students get an opportunity to be trained at the international level for the maintenance of all types of airlines. We develop students’ abilities in engineering, design, management, and be able to make an immediate contribution in the workplace. We have teamed up with many airlines to provide our students with performance-driven training solutions that meet the complete requirements of the Aviation Industry. Our students graduate career-ready with a strong academic foundation and the most comprehensive training available. Our students now hold enviable positions in premier aviation organizations in India and abroad.





 AME technicians have high pay starting at 8.5 Lakh/Year, going upto 60 Lakhs/Year or more with higher seniority. This is several times higher than the pay received by those who are automobile Engineers.



 As per requirements, airlines require their Maintenance Engineers to be present in different cities and countries (With Hotel and Stipend provided). This provides exceptional travel opportunities.




AMEs are incredibly important to maintain safety protocol in the aviation industry. You can choose to specialize in your favorite aircraft or become well-versed in many. It's up to you!




Increasing demand for Airlines is also boosting up the demand for maintenance engineers. This growth would reflect in rapid rises in salaries and high job security. 




If there was one word used to describe the community at Airline industry: Elegant. 

Through work, you get to meet kind and interesting people everyday, providing you with opportunities to make lasting connections.

Our Focus

  • To provide advanced Technical Education - Theoretical as well as Practical Training on Live Aircraft, maintenance procedures.

  • To comply with Airworthy Standards as stipulated by DGCA (India), F.A.A (USA), EASA (Europe), and ICAO.

  • To ensure Training on safety and reliability of aircraft.

  • To assure students 100% On-Job Training assistance on completion of the scheduled training program as per the guidelines of DGCA, providing suitable placement in any aviation company as a result. 


With our most advanced training facilities, expert instructors, and practical trainers, we bring you the finest AME training available in the Industry using our comprehensive DGCA approved syllabus. Our Course offers insightful theoretical classes followed by practical training on workshop practices, laboratory procedures, calibration, testing, and other instrumentation tests as well as a ground running and servicing of aircraft engines, airframes, and systems

AME Course is Offered in the Following Stream

Mechanical Stream

  • Light Aircraft

  • Piston Engine

Avionics Stream​

  • Electrical System (ES)

  • Instrument System (IS)

  • Radio Navigation (RN)

Of the two streams in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering: Mechanical covers Airframe and Engine while Avionics deals with Electrical, Instrument, and Radio Navigation systems. An Aircraft Maintenance Engineer is a licensed Engineer and requires an official license from DGCA, Govt. of India to have a successful professional career.

Course Duration

The duration of the AME Course is three years, which includes two and a half years (2 ½ Yr) of in-house training and six months of On-the-Job Practical Training in any DGCA approved maintenance organization. The Two and half years (2 ½ Yr) in-house training is divided into five semesters (each semester of six-month duration)

Our institute has tied up with a leading MRO organization to ensure our students get the best on-the-job experience. Our students profess a major advantage over competitors as our organization has its own world-class MRO services company competent to offer the best service in aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhau


AME license holders are in good demand as the Aviation industry has been expanding rapidly in India and abroad. Many new airlines have started operations and the civil aviation field has seen a number of new aircraft joining the fleets every month due to a multitude of reasons. This has resulted in a large number of vacancies for aircraft technicians and engineers. International carriers have also shown increased interest in having their planes overhauled in India due to cost advantages. 


Our students are holding managerial positions and playing key roles in different International and National Airlines. We have an elaborate success story of our Institute with our students working as full scope Aircraft Maintenance Engineers in key positions in leading aircraft maintenance companies.


Some of these organizations include Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, GAMCO, British Airways, Nepal Airlines, Air India & Alliance Air, Pawan Hans, Jet Airways, Go Air, Paramount Airways, Indigo Airlines, Spice Jet, Blue Dart, Gulf Air.
