here's my problem :
- i want to go live in canada and work there.
- i've study and obtain exams in france in 2001.
- after 11 years of work as aircraft mechanic, i've obtain EASA B1 licence and A330 and A340 type licence, in 2012
- now, after 6 years more, i'll want work in canada.
but, to do that, i need a AME licence. so, it is possible to convert EASA licence to AME licence or i need to follow the complete AME licence course?
i mean, if i follow the course, i need :
-Be at least 21 years of age
ok easy one!
-Complete a Transport Canada-approved AME basic training program (or one that is acceptable to Transport Canada)
maybe using my french certificats?
-Get the total amount of applicable civil aviation maintenance experience
i think that can be easy because of my 17 years of experience. but did i need to fill a book or something?
-Gain skills by doing a number of specific maintenance tasks
i work during 17 years on A330 and A340 C checks, so no problem. the problem is the form. how do that?
-Successfully complete the technical (if required) and regulatory exams
same as training, maybe using french certificats
-Submit an application with the correct form and all other required documentation
not hard one too.
did you have somes sugestions or ideas?
If you did not receive your basic training from an approved training organization, use the AME Licence Application Supplement form 26-0638.
