BATC (Bangladesh Airlines Training Center) jointly with WRI consultancy from Nepal has conducted a seminar on current demand of Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and status of EASA licensed human resource in Nepal on 31 March at Indreni de Cafe, Kathmandu.

Representatives of BATC and Biman Airlines had also informed the attendee about the AME course offered at BATC. The speakers had also spoken briefly about the infrastructure of the institute along with the course syllabus, training program, and cost of the course offered by BATC in Dhaka.
The BATC institute currently enrolls only sixteen students in each intake and is an EASA 147 approved organization. The institute till date has already completed two sessions of classes and the majority of the students completing the course from the institute are enrolled with Biman airlines (the national flag carrier of Bangladesh) and some Middle East based airlines.
The institute is also planning to have an MOU with the civil aviation authority of Nepal and enroll Nepali students along with aviation professional in the course. The representative added that BATC can be a good option for the Nepali professional to secure their EASA license at a lower cost.
The world by 2020 will need more over 4, 00,000 AME professional for maintaining the aircraft for airworthiness, added a representative from BATC.
