Diploma 3 Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Polibatam Produces Graduates in AMTO

NEWS-Politeknik Negeri Batam has a Diploma 3 Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (TPPU) Study Program with complete facilities ranging from aircraft hangars, aircraft, aircraft engines and other supporting laboratories as well as dormitories for TPPU cadets. Students or cadets are taught to have the main competencies, include carrying out community service activities oriented to improving living standards through strengthening the quality of human resources, organizing good organizational governance of aircraft maintenance engineering Study Programs, organizing educational activities in a structured academic system and planned to produce associate expert-level staff in the field of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering with skills and competencies, carrying out partnership-based applicative research with industry and the community in the field of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering that can produce appropriate technological solutions for the community.

The job prospects of this TPPU D3 graduates are very bright with a civil aircraft mechanic career path. The second stage of the career path of an aircraft mechanic is to become an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME). To get an AME license, a mechanic holding a basic license should conduct training for certain types of aircraft. An AME is allowed to carry out aircraft maintenance directly assisted by mechanics holding the Basic Certificate. And the top of the aircraft mechanic profession is to become a Maintenance Approval Holder, that is a mechanic who has the authority to allow (stamp) aircraft that have been treated to return to flight (return to service/RTS).

Thus, to become a professional civil aircraft mechanic, the first training that should be followed is basic license training. Of all flight training institutions in Indonesia, there are only four aircraft mechanic training institutions (AMTO) that hold basic license training. All of them are on the Java Island. The number of graduates from these four training institutions is not sufficient for the demand for aircraft mechanics in Indonesia. In addition to the maximum capacity, before graduating, the students of the training institution have been recruited by aviation companies in the country (e.g. PT. Garuda Maintenance Facility Aero Asia Tbk, PT. Lion Mentari Airlines, etc.).

Aircraft mechanics have the duty of carrying out maintenance, repair and dismantling of aircraft frames, engines, components and accessories so that aircraft are airworthy and safe for flight. To become an aircraft mechanic, in the first stage a person must go through basic education in aircraft mechanics or maintenance (basic license training). According to regulations, the training should be carried out for a minimum of 3000 hours or approximately 18 months. The students of this training are graduates of SMA IPA or SMK engineering. After passing the training with 40% theory and 60% practical material, students are entitled to a Basic License and may carry out aircraft maintenance under the supervision of an AMEL (Aircraft Maintenance Engineer License) holder. The type of work that can be undertaken is in accordance with the basic license obtained during the training. The types of Basic License are A1: Airframe – airplane; A2: Airframes – helicopters; A3: Engine pistons; A4: Turbine engines; C1: Radio; C2: Instruments; C4: Electrical.
