Course Description

This course covers the vocabulary, practice and technologies of aircraft maintenance management, the areas of concern for maintenance professionals, some tools used in the planning and control of maintenance, the personnel issues of training and safety, the processes of maintenance program development, and the aviation regulatory framework in which continuing airworthiness and aircraft maintenance is managed. Key areas of study:


• Aircraft Maintenance Concepts
• Aircraft Maintenance in Practice
• Continuing Airworthiness Regulations
• Maintenance Programs and Planning
• Ageing Aircraft


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course develops and assesses the following program learning outcomes:

1. Needs, Context and Systems
• Describe, investigate and analyse complex engineering systems and associated issues (using systems thinking and modelling techniques)

2. Problem Solving and Design
• Develop creative and innovative solutions to engineering problems

4. Professional Practice
• Understand the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in the specific discipline
• Apply systematic approaches to the conduct and management of engineering projects
• Communicate in a variety of different ways to collaborate with other people, including accurate listening, reading and comprehension, based on dialogue when appropriate, taking into account the knowledge, expectations, requirements, interests, terminology and language of the intended audience

5. Research
• Assess, acquire and apply the competencies and resources appropriate to engineering activities
 


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):

On completion of this course you should be able to:
1. Apply airworthiness regulations to aircraft maintenance management.
2. Apply aircraft maintenance principles and procedures.
