I want to be a helicopter maintenance engineer, regarding the licenses...

Hello everybody,

I'm thinking of becoming a helicopter engineer, but right now I'm still undecided whether to go for EASA (CAAi) or DCAM license. My biggest concern with EASA (CAAi) is when obtaining the work schedule needed for the LWTR later on, as Ive read somewhere that CAAi only accept work schedules done with approved part-145 MROs only.

From what Ive checked so far, no local company in their list services live helicopters. I am right to be concerned over this and just take the DCAM instead?

Thank you

take DCAM for your rotary wing license, you won't get in trouble when you want to collect your schedule of work
APR is the only ATO offers B1.3.

Go with rotary wings, ie Cat.B1.3, where there's always demand and big bucks.
Ask yourself, is this what you wanna do?
Fixed wing and rotary wings are not the same apple.
You worked in a different environment altogether. So consider where you might be working too..

Common sense (which is no longer common) should tell you what companies are operating helicopters here in Malaysia.
