Aircraft maintenance personnel

Special training courses comprising both theory and practical elements exist for aircraft maintenance personnel. Training takes between two and five years, depending on the type of licence. After completing their course, trainees are required to take a practical and a theory examination.

In order to obtain or extend a Part-66 licence, training has to be completed in accordance with the requirements of EASA (Part-66).

National licences (e.g. for maintenance work on gliders with/without a motor, balloons and airships or components) exist in areas that are not governed by EU regulations or have not yet been regulated by the EU. These licences are based on the provisions of the Federal Ordinance on Aircraft Maintenance Personnel (SR 748.127.2).


Theory examinations for national licences

Theory examinations for national licences are carried out by the FOCA and take place each year in the first week of April and the first week of November.

Examination dates:

Tuesday, 27.03.2018
(exceptionally not in the first week of April because of Easter) and
Tuesday, 06.11.2018

The examinations will be held at the premises of the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC) in Ittigen (near Bern). Registrations must be submitted not later than four weeks in advance (i.e. by 27.02.2018 / 06.10.2018). Candidates accepted for the examinations will be notified in good time about the precise time and location.
