The Basic Training Course B1.1will allow you to acquire all the basic knowledge required to obtain certification of Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) for B1 category and will provide you internship in Line maintenance and Base (hangar).
The course includes theoretical and practical exams, once passed both exams the student will carry out the internship in company, will receive the corresponding certification Part 66 from AESA with recognition of Ministry of Development, Part 147 (EASA).
The B1 category licence will allow to it’s holder to issue CRS certificate after line maintenance procedure, including aircraft structure, engine group, electrical and mechanical systems. It is also included within the privileges of this license, replacement of replaceable avionics units in line that require simple tests to verify their correct operation.
B1 category also includes basic maintenance functions as a support staff for C category certified stall, who is in charge of CRS emission for the aircraft after base maintenance.
B1.1 Turbine Aeroplanes
B1.2 Piston Aeroplanes
B1.3 Turbine Helicopters
B1.4 Piston Helicopters
Note: B1 category license automatically includes A category license.
The minimum duration of the course will be 2,430 hours (24 months approximately).
All applicants have to justify at least 1 year of recent experience in common aircraft types of the category or subcategory.
