    Default Military aircraft engineering

    Some time ago there was talk of the need for some sort of licencing for the military engineering world outside of the RAF, in particular MOD.

    I realise that companies such as Marshalls employ both licenced and unlicenced engineers but what of MOD? Are there still plans to introduce such regulations, bearing in mind the civilian crossover of the planned large aircraft replacements?

    MOD A/C As I understand the situation as long as any aircraft is not on the G register it can be serviced without any need for civil licences or certifications. Contracted A/C working for the military and on the UK register must be maintained by licensed engineering.

    Taz,

    You're probably thinking of MAOS (Military Aircraft Organisation System?). Its based on EASA 145 in as much that Pt 66 (of MAOS) refers to personnel auths and Pt 147 refers to training. Once in place it will set a standard for civilian organisations working in the military environment and those that have MAOS will have the edge over those that don't when it comes to snuggling up to the MoD.

    The RAFs C-17 Globemaster which are leased from Boeing are, I believe, maintained by military guys who have obtained there CAA license along with mechanics in the RAF. The airforce has been slowly moving over to a multi-skilled tradesmen environment and most 'heavies' are now airframe/engine technicians on type.

    Common myth about the RAF guys being liscenced. They aren't they originally had to travel to the states for as 'Q' course which probably was the same as the type course but without their licence couldn't be classed as so.

    Many thanks Guys,

    The MAOS does trigger a few memories. I will have a little google about.
