Aircraft Maintenance Engineers Engine Course Overview

There are multiple reasons why it is necessary to perform an Engine Ground Run (EGR) whether on the Line or following Base Maintenance Operations.

At AETS-Sofema, our specially designed Engine Ground Running training contains both theoretical and practical sessions. The theoretical classroom training is followed by the participants completing an actual ground run on an aircraft simulator.

The simulator allows training for all emergency scenarios which simply cannot be performed on a live aircraft - For example, discharging an Aircraft Engine or APU Fire-Bottle following the positive identification of an Engine Fire.

Our courses are specifically designed with the Instructor, interacting with and providing detailed guidance to enable the student to pass through all the required elements.
