There are two specializations available in the AMEL Program
B1/B2 Course Outline
This module covers the basic arithmetic, algebra and geometry that lays the foundation for equations to be used in the modules that will follow (physics, electrical fundamentals and electronic fundamentals).
The physics module provides knowledge of matter, mechanics, thermodynamics, optics and sound.
This module provides the fundamental knowledge and basis for electronic fundamentals. The content includes electron theory, generation of electricity, capacitance, magnetism, inductance, transformers, generators and motors.
This module teaches data, logic circuits, microprocessors, fiber optics and digital aircraft systems.
Materials & Hardware
This module begins by covering the wide range of aircraft materials used, enabling students to apply their knowledge of atomic structure to understand the characteristics and properties of these materials. This module also provides an insight to components such as fasteners, pipes, bearings, gears, cables, and connectors.
This module focuses on typical aircraft maintenance activities such as the assembly, inspection and testing of components as well as the associated tools, safety precautions and engineering standards.
The basic aerodynamics module includes the atmosphere, aerodynamics and the theory of flight. Aerodynamic heating, area rule, factors affecting airflow in engine intakes of high-speed aircraft, Mach number, effects of sweepback on critical Mach number are all the part of this module.
Within a maintenance environment it is essential that human factors are taken into account. By understanding human performance limitations, social psychology, communication and the factors affecting performance, the likelihood of incidents attributable to human error are minimized. This module is compulsory for both B1 and B2 students.
This module covers the aviation regulatory framework, certifying staff, aircraft certification and international requirements. It also includes approved maintenance organizations, air operations, certification of aircraft, continuing airworthiness, ETOPS, maintenance and dispatch requirements, all weather operations and Category 2/3 operations.
Aero Plane Aerodynamics, Structures & Systems
This extensive module provides explanations of fixed-wing aerodynamics and all the main systems found in modern civil aircraft: airframe, air conditioning, instruments, electrical power, equipment & furnishings, fire protection, flight controls, fuel systems, hydraulic power, ice & rain protection, landing gear, lights, oxygen, pneumatics, water & waste, onboard maintenance systems, integrated modular avionics (IMA), cabin systems and information systems. 11A is tailored for aircraft powered by turbine engines (applicable for those studying towards a B1.1 license). 11B is tailored for piston engine aircraft (applicable for those studying towards a B1.2 license).
Gas Turbine Engine
The substantial content within this module covers gas turbine engine fundamentals, performance, detailed explanations of each section of the engine and the supporting systems. Different types of gas turbine engines are considered and the module also includes installation, monitoring, ground running and storage.
This module covers the fundamentals of propeller design, construction, pitch control, synchronizing, ice protection, maintenance and storage. This module also includes propeller performance and propeller types.
