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 (PLOs):

1. Needs, context and systems:
Identify, interpret and analyse stakeholder needs, establish priorities and the goals, constraints and uncertainties of the system (social, cultural, legislative, environmental, business etc.), using systems thinking, while recognising ethical implications of professional practice.

2. Problem-solving and design:
Apply problem solving, design and decision-making methodologies to develop components, systems and/ or processes to meet specified requirements, including innovative approaches to synthesise alternative solutions, concepts and procedures.

3. Abstraction and modelling:
Apply abstraction, mathematics and discipline fundamentals to analysis, design and operation, using appropriate computer software, laboratory equipment and other devices, ensuring model applicability, accuracy and limitations.


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.
