Introducing Sofema Aviation Services (SAS) and SofemaOnline (SOL)


Since founding Sofema Aviation Services in 2008 and later Sofema Online - We now offer more than 550 Classroom Courses and 200 online courses.

Whilst  SAS is known to EASA  please note the challenge that Regulatory Training Organisations do not have EASA Approval - this applies not only to Sofema but to other organizations such as JAA-TO - Baines Simmons - CAA International - Even EASA itself does not have the approval to provide regulatory training. !

What do we mean by Team?

When we’re in the presence of others, people are more physiologically aroused and energized, and dominant behaviours are strengthened. This phenomenon is called social facilitation. 

Within the maintenance Environment we need to work together as a team to enable the accomplishment of complex tasks – however there is a difference between working as a team and working as individuals within a team.

Complex systems need ‘teams’ to get task done - Teams have to be conceived, planned and implemented with care.

Steve Bentley MD of Sofema Aviation Service ( looks at issues related to Part 66 OJT

This document is additionally supplied as an appendix to the Sofema Aviation Services / SofemaOnline “Going it alone” document.

What is Basic Experience? 

Basic Experience is the number of years you have to be able to demonstrate prior to being accepted for the issue of an AMEL. 

From EASA FAQ - Where do I gain the required basic maintenance experience? Is it mandatory to gain the required maintenance experience in an EASA approved Part-145 organisation? 

According to the AMC 66.A.30(a)(4), aircraft maintenance experience gained within different types of maintenance organisations (under Part-145, M.A. Subpart F, FAR-145, etc.) or under the supervision of independent certifying staff may be accepted by the competent authorities.
