EASA part-66 BASIC training

Due to the requirements of EASA Part-145 and Part-M to which the Part-66 licence has a strong relationship, PKL have developed a number of Part-66 basic modules. These are intended to comply with the recent implementation of the European Union Commission Regulation (EC) No 2042/2003 signed on the 20th November 2003 on the continuing airworthiness of aircraft and aeronautical products, parts and appliances, and in the approval of organisations.

Article 5 refers to Certifying Staff and Article 6 refers to Training Organisation Requirements.

The implementation of the above regulations provides a timeframe where certifying staff in a Part-145 approved maintenance company must hold a Part-66 licence to continue certifying, this must be complied with by 28th September 2006 for certifying staff on aircraft above 5,700 kg.

PKL can provide conversion training for engineers/technicians who wish to convert their current UK CAA BCAR Section L licence, (or limited JAR-66 licence), to a full EASA Part-66 B1 or B2 licence.

It is recommended by the UK CAA that additional training is carried out by a Part-147 approved training school.
However, PKL can provide distance-learning packages enhanced by short periods of classroom training and a series of mock examinations prior to the UK CAA examination. This will enable engineers, who are unable to obtain release from their company for a long period, to obtain their full Part-66 licence.

PKL can also provide training in the following modules, to the relevant levels (1, 2, and 3) for Category A, B1 and B2.

• Module 1 Mathematics
• Module 2 Physics
• Module 3 Electrical Fundamentals.
• Module 4 Electronic Fundamentals.
• Module 5 Digital Techniques/Electronic Instrument Systems.
• Module 6 Materials and Hardware
• Module 7 Maintenance Practices.
• Module 8 Basic Aerodynamics.
• Module 9 Human factors in aircraft maintenance.
• Module 10 Aviation Legislation
• Module 11 Aeroplane Aerodynamics, Structures, and Systems.
• Module 13 Aeroplane Aerodynamics, Structures, and Systems.
• Module 14 Propulsion
• Module 15 Gas Turbine Engine.
• Module 17 Propeller.

Some modules are relevant to industry in general. We can provide modular training on DC and AC Fundamentals, Electronic Fundamentals, Digital Techniques, Human Factors and Gas Turbines for companies outside the aviation sector.
