Aircraft Maintenance License Program – EASA Part 66

EASA Part 66 – Program Lesen Penyelenggaraan Pesawat Terbang

Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology (UniKL MIAT), in partnership with AERO-Bildungs GmbH of Germany, is recognised by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) as an approved centre in Malaysia for Aviation Maintenance Training Organization (MTO). UniKL MIAT will offer EASA Part 66 – Aircraft Maintenance Engineer License program.

Successful candidates will be awarded the “Certificate of Recognition” which is recognised as having passed the written examination for EASA License (Category B). This program will be conducted by highly skilled instructors who have been trained in Germany and certified as instructors for the EASA program.

  • B1.3 Helicopter Turbine
  • B1.2 Aeroplanes Piston
  • B1.4 Helicopter Piston


An aircraft maintenance engineer is fully responsible for ensuring an aircraft operates safely and in compliance towards the aircraft manufacturer maintenance standards. A license aircraft engineer may make maintenance repairs, troubleshoot problems on aircraft systems, conduct an airworthiness inspections and make upgrades to aircrafts part or structure that related to the continuity of an aircraft airworthiness. Daily duties may include keeping records of a performed scheduled maintenance, making emergency repairs, or preparing for any required inspections.

Due to the extreme safety measures enforced for aircrafts, aircraft license engineers must continually test newly installed equipment and components to ensure existing aircraft systems are properly maintained and properly functioning. Any carelessness or mistakes could result in fatal accidents during flights, so license aircraft engineers perform proper maintenance and putting aircraft release into service.

Many candidates that have successfully completed EASA Part-66 aircraft licensing programs may pursue their career in various positions and are based on which industry the aircraft engineer enters into. For example, if working for an airline, an aircraft license engineer may be required to sign certificates of release and follow security procedures on a regular basis. Certifications are available but not a requirement. However, aircraft engineers seeking management or senior engineer positions often look into obtaining certification to increase their chances of a promotion such as type training or any other training within the scope of aircraft maintenance and so on.

Jobs as an aircraft license engineer are expected to be higher in demand than average by 3.5% from 2018-2028 due to the market demands and the production release of an aircraft and contributing towards tourism and business growth.

Airlines and independent companies that specialize in aircraft maintenance are the major employers of aircraft maintenance license engineers. Others work for small employers in general aviation, including business aviation, air taxis, the police, air ambulance, surveying, agriculture and pilot training as well. Flying clubs also employ aircraft license engineers to maintain it general aviation aircraft. There are some license aircraft engineer that work on a freelance basis with bit more of a freedom in life.

Many small organizations only recruit trained engineers. It is usually large employers that offer training schemes, but competition for entry is intense. This is where UniKL MIAT as one of the EASA foreign approved training organisation (EASA.147.0083) plays an important role in developing more License Aircraft Engineer in a way that the aviation industry will grow in more rapid phase to support the demand locally and internationally. There is a shortage of trained aircraft maintenance engineers thru out the whole world and holders of EASA Part-66 licenses are particularly in demand, especially B1.1, B1.3 and B2 license categories.

In future years of career, progression to senior and supervisor positions may be possible, particularly if the personnel are a license aircraft engineer. Further progression is possible to a higher management positions such as Managers, General Manager or even a Vice President of a specifically related department. Some experienced license aircraft engineers may seek work with aircraft manufacturers in production fitting or in design and development that would definitely quite handy in advancing of a career.
