Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) M-License

What makes each Aircraft special?

Aircraft Maintenance Engineers work so closely with a variety of aircraft that they learn to tell the differences between the curve of their wings and where to find their hidden flight data recorders.

The training provided in our program is applicable to both rotary wing aircraft (helicopters) and fixed wing aircraft, covering a wide range of subjects with emphasis on practical training. Some of the major subjects taught include aviation law, theory of flight, power plants (turbine and piston), air frame structures and systems, hydraulics, electrical and avionics systems.

If you choose this career and apply for our program you will be trained at our Vernon Aerospace campus for the first 48 weeks and the final 14 weeks at the Northern Lights College Aerospace Centre in Dawson Creek.  At both campuses you will find instructors that are not only knowledgeable but have passion for what they do and all aspects of aviation.  

Behind every safe landing is a team of Aircraft Maintenance Engineers!
