Thanks Daniel…

this post require any licence ? wat kind of licence…

sorry my cousein thinking to taking up this course … but not so sure wat actaully the course study …

izzit need to study until degree ?

aircraft engineer need only be competent in prioritising, analysing, solving, & then getting the machine flying… Safely
All comes with experience.

a licence is required to sign for any work carried out on commercial aircraft.
Licences are issued by Department of Civil Aviation & are covered by Statute Law. ie. You are held responsible for your signature.
it is gained by validation of work experience, followed by DCA written & oral examinations, for each discipline.

Degree is not required, but can assist in certain management positions.
Malaysian college in KL will shortly start courses, giving the student an Internationally recognised certificate in AME.

Currently is a massive requirement for talented engineers, of the ‘hands-on’ type, willing & able to work anywhere globally, Oil&Gas.


How abt EASA ? did u heard this EASA b4?

Izit same as Aerospace Engineer ?

sorry … i think i ask too many question … :wink:

EASA is the European Aviation Safety Agency, & is that they authorise/regulate/monitor the Aerospace Engineer.
they cover JAR, Joint Airworthiness Regulations, which is parrallel to daniel’s American FAA.
These two authorities set the standards globally for anyone involved in the Aerospace industry.

Currently Malaysian Legislation in this Industry adheres to the old British Civil Airworthieness Regulations & the law book ‘The Air Navigation Order’.
This will change over to be in parrallel with the new European regulations, within 3 to 4 years.
Australia likewise, will also follow, again currently similar to old UK.

The courses for engineers shortly to be introduced in KL, will be to the European standards, with European certs.
It’s that at the moment with the many diverse locations that you can be employed in… Africa, Asia, Middle East, etc,
that the JAR licence is readily acceptable by all legislative dept’s.

(must retire! WAYYY past my bed-time! can PM me for further info…2morro!)
