What is an EASA Part-147 approved aircraft type training?
EASA Part 147 approved aircraft type trainings are the trainings that you need to complete successfully in order to endorse an aircraft type to your aircraft maintenance licence. By completing an EASA Part 147 approved aircraft maintenance type training, you will be able to become a certifying staff on that particular aircraft type at an aircraft maintenance organisation. If you have an aircraft type on your aircraft maintenance licence, you will be able to be authorized to release an aircraft into service after a maintenance operation.
Is it mandatory to go to a Part-147 approved training organisation to get type training? Can we do this training in a Part-145 approved organisation?
Only approved Part-147 organisations are entitled to conduct type training courses in accordance with Article 6 of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014. Part-145 organisations can not perform complete aircraft type training courses.
Is it possible to perform aircraft type training in two different organisations? Can I do my practical portion of the type training in a Part-145 organisation?
Only a Part-147 organisation has the privilege to provide aircraft type training courses. This comprises both the theoretical and practical element of the aircraft type training, including the related examinations and assessments. This means that the practical element of the aircraft type training shall be completed in a Part-147 organisation.
