How to Become an Aircraft Engineer?

Like all specialized occupations, in order to become an Aircraft Maintenance Technician/Engineer, you'll need to go through a series of examinations and licensing procedures.

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 66 licence is the main one.  It's a globally recognized licensing program, and one of the most critical qualifications of an Aircraft Maintenance Technician/Engineer in any aviation industry.
