Part-66 AML for aircraft maintenance technicians

Aircraft maintenance may only be performed and signed off by authorized technicians. Maintenance technicians must therefore have a licence: a Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Licence (AML). 

Kiwa Register is the competent authority in the Netherlands for issuing the AML certificate.

A Part 66 AML is issued by the aviation authorities of an EU country. This indicates for which aircraft category a maintenance technician is recognized. 

A technician can extend this by following training courses for specific aircraft types. These training courses are credited to the AML and prove that a maintenance technician is authorized to perform maintenance on the stated aircraft types. 

EASA Part 66

Maintenance technicians must comply with the European standard prescribed by the EASA and set out in the EASA Part 66 regulations (EU) No 1321/2014 Annex III. If you have the required Part 66 qualifications you can apply for an Aircraft Maintenance Licence (AML). 

An AML consists of the basic category to carry out aircraft maintenance and supplementary type ratings. 

It is possible to hold different categories (A, B1, B2, B3 and C) and type ratings on your AML. Depending on the (sub)category of the application, you have to demonstrate an established level of knowledge of related topics.
The topics and the knowledge level for each (sub)category can be found in EASA Part-66, Appendix I to Annex III

Depending on the category you apply for, you have to demonstrate a set amount of years of experience.
The amount of experience depends on the category but also on the attended training courses and certificates you hold. The demonstrated experience has to have been obtained recently and has to have relevance for the category you apply for. 

Further information can be found in the EASA Part-66 and in the online handbook Part-66 AML on the right side of this webpage.
