Licensing of maintenance engineers

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

36.—(1) The CAA must grant an aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence, subject to such conditions it deems appropriate, if it is satisfied that the applicant is—

(a)a fit person to hold the licence; and

(b)qualified by having the knowledge, experience, competence and skill in aeronautical engineering to act in the capacity to which the licence relates.

(2) For the purposes of paragraph (1) the applicant must supply such evidence and undergo such examinations and tests as the CAA may require.

(3) An aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence authorises the holder—

(a)to issue certificates of release to service under this Order for such overhauls, repairs, replacements, modifications, maintenance and inspections of such aircraft and such equipment as may be specified;

(b)to issue certificates of fitness for flight issued under paragraph 5 of the A Conditions for such aircraft as may be specified; or

(c)to extend the validity period of the national airworthiness review certificate.

(4) Subject to article 253, an aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence remains in force for the period specified in the licence, which must not exceed five years.

(5) An aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence may be renewed by the CAA if it is satisfied that the applicant is a fit person and is qualified in accordance with paragraph (1).

(6) The CAA may issue a certificate rendering valid for the purposes of this Order any aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence granted under the law of any country other than the United Kingdom.

(7) An aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence granted under this article is not valid unless it has been signed by the holder in ink or indelible pencil but if the licence is annexed to an aircraft maintenance licence issued under Part 66 it is sufficient if that Part 66 licence has such a signature.

(8) The holder of an aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence granted under paragraph (1) or of an aircraft maintenance licence granted under Part 66 must not exercise the privileges of such a licence if the holder knows or suspects that their physical or mental condition renders them unfit to exercise such privileges.
