Frequently Asked Questions

The length of a given AMT course will depend on the type of degree and the university that is offering the course. In the case of a diploma, the ATM course will be around 1 to 2 years, and in the case of a full-length undergraduate program will stretch to 3 years. Also, some universities offer foundation years along with the degree.

Hide answer

Yes, the AMT course is fairly difficult. The course offers overcomeable challenges with engineering and technical subjects. Students should choose an AMT institute with a good onsite lab and hangar to make education easier, as practical training holds a big say in understanding the course.

Hide answer

AMT course graduates can inspect, maintain, operate, and troubleshoot aerospace vehicles. However, they do not have the training or license to fly any aircraft. You will need at least a private pilot license to fly any non-commercial aircraft and a commercial pilot license to fly a commercial one. So, having acquired a pilot license, an aircraft technician can become a pilot.
