67.Attended for EAMTC General Assembly
The EAMTC (European Maintenance Training Committee) is a member of over 80 organizations from all over the world who are training aircraft maintenance trainers. This committee takes on the role of EASA as a non-governmental organization and its reports and studies are taken into account when legislation is prepared by EASA. The organizations that come together here are exchanging ideas and negotiating the solutions they have found concerning the problems they encounter.
We are also members of EAMTC, there are two general meetings in the Senate and an EASA representative representing the EASA Rule Making Group. This officer, in his presentations, deals with issues such as new draft rules, answers to specific problems, and also provides personal interviewing opportunities and personal problems.
67. Interviewed topics in EAMTC General Assembly
The meeting hosted by Lufthansa took place at the hotel and conference center in Lufthansa in Frankfurt, Seeheim. In the meeting, THY Teknik A.Ş. Head of Education Mahmut Demirkan, Head of Basic Education Mustafa Cıdık and Head of Type Education Murat Köse participated.
One of the important issues mentioned in the meeting is the involvement of a representative from EAMTC, representing the aircraft maintenance training sector, in a working group formed by ICAO. This working group is tasked with updating the PANS Training Document 9868.Part III chapters 1 and 2 of this document are about aircraft maintenance training. (PANS : Procedures for Air Navigation Services ) Within the scope of this work, ICAO is expected from an aircraft technician practical evaluation and safety that should be applied considering the necessary behaviors focused on the knowledge issue. In this context, it may be expected in the near future that a more independent and more comprehensive practical assessment of the need for technician licensing and authorization will come to the fore.
Another agenda item is the representation of the EAMTC in the institutions under the EASA at Advisory Body Structure EAMTC contributes to the following boards:
- Stakeholder Advisory Body (SAB)
- Design and Manufacturing Technical Committee (DM.TEC)
- Engineering and Maintenance Technical Committee (EM.TEC)
According to the statistics reported by the EASA authority, 550 of the licensed 550 people who were licensed by the ERA exam, which had previously become a major crime in the sector, re-activated their licenses after the authorities evaluated the 203. 271 licenses have been suspended and 76 licenses have been revoked.
The EASA authority shared the following draft rules with the participants:
- Task RMT.0281 “New teaching and training technologies”. This rule deals with the standards and uses of new educational technologies to be used in basic and type education.
- RMT.0106 “CS-MCSD”. Within the framework of this rule, producers need to prepare “minimum syllabus” for type training. In the type training, the table in Part III of Appendix III will be expected to apply this minimum syllabus.
In the framework of the results obtained from the sector survey for Part-66 and Part-147, the amendment of the legislation is on the agenda. These change items are as follows:
Simplification of license categories
- Define a more modern licensing procedure for future generations
- Passage of mutual recognition procedure between national authorities
- Overcoming the problems experienced in training and maintenance activities of non-production aircraft
- Part-66 Appendix I conversion to AMC
- Preparation of guidelines for practical training
- The coming of the technical English exam
- Designing a more knowledge- and skill-oriented system by reducing the weight given to the theoretical knowledge
- Designing a logbook for technicians to use throughout their lives
- Module exams exclusively made by the Authorities (except exams applied in an approved basic education)
Visit the Lufthansa Training Center
On the last day of the meeting, a trip to Lufthansa's main training facilities at Frankfurt Airport was organized. In addition to a dedicated aircraft for this training, basic practical training on engines and propellers is applied in various types and categories.
