Mechanical Stream – 30 Seats
- Light Aircraft (LA)
- Piston Engine (PE)
- Mechanical streamis the discipline that applies engineering, physics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
- Mechanical aircraft maintenance engineers inspect, maintain and repair the mechanical components of aircraft. They work on all parts of the aircraft, except instruments and radio systems. They may focus on a specific section of the aircraft, or on one particular maintenance process. They conduct pre-flight checks of aircraft systems to detect and diagnose defective equipment in order to prevent malfunction. When changes are made, they put the aircraft through a series of tests to ensure it is functioning properly and in safe condition for flights.
- Mechanical aircraft maintenance engineers work in a range of environments such as indoors in workshops or the hangar, outdoors on the airfield, or on the flight line where aircraft await departure. Working conditions in the hangar are well ventilated and strict safety regulations ensure that risks are minimised.
- Aircraft maintenance engineers (Mechanical stream) inspect and work on engines and landing gear, and accessories such as brakes, hydraulic systems, pneumatic devices, fuel control pumps, valves and air conditioning systems. Hoists are used to remove engines, which can then be dismantled and tested to check for corrosion. In some cases components may be X-rayed or checked using magnetic inspection equipment to look for unnoticeable cracks.
- The Mechanical stream field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. In addition to these core principles, mechanical engineers use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), and product life cycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.
