DGCA AME (Aircraft Maintenance Engineering) Course Syllabus

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is the regulatory body responsible for overseeing civil aviation in India. The Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) program falls under the purview of the DGCA, and it is responsible for setting the syllabus and standards for AME training in India.

Keeping in mind the rapidly changing requirements of the aviation industry and as per the guidelines of DGCA, we have carefully structured our AME syllabus for the students.

  • AME Category A 1 Syllabus
  • AME Category B 1.1 Syllabus

The syllabus for Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) is designed to provide comprehensive training to individuals aspiring to become aircraft maintenance technicians. The syllabus is typically structured into different modules or subjects, covering various aspects of aircraft maintenance, systems, and regulations. The exact structure and content of the syllabus may vary depending on the regulatory authority of the organization.

Here is a general overview of the typical subjects covered in an AME syllabus:

Aircraft Structures

This subject covers the study of aircraft construction, materials used, inspection techniques, and repair procedures for various structural components.


Students learn the principles of flight, forces acting on an aircraft, and how these factors affect aircraft performance and stability.

Aircraft Systems

This subject delves into the various systems installed on an aircraft, such as electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, fuel, and environmental control systems. Students learn about their components, functions, operation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair.

Aircraft Powerplants

This subject focuses on the study of aircraft engines, including both piston engines and gas turbine engines. Students learn about engine construction, operation, performance, maintenance, and troubleshooting.


Avionics refers to the electronic systems and instruments installed in an aircraft. This subject covers topics such as communication systems, navigation systems, instrument systems, and autopilot systems.

Aircraft Maintenance Practices

This subject encompasses the fundamental principles and practices of aircraft maintenance, including inspection techniques, documentation, maintenance planning, and regulatory requirements.

Human Factors

Human factors play a crucial role in aviation safety. This subject focuses on topics such as human performance, crew resource management, fatigue management, and error prevention.

Aviation Regulations

Students learn about the regulatory framework governing aviation maintenance and operations, including the rules and regulations set by the relevant aviation authority.

Practical Training

Along with theoretical knowledge, AME programs often include hands-on practical training, where students gain experience in aircraft maintenance procedures, component removal and installation, inspections, and repairs.

It’s important to note that the specific syllabus and its structure may vary depending on the institution offering the AME program.
