  • CASR Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence category/sub-categories:
  • A – (Mechanical) sub-categories 1 through 4 – fixed or rotary-wing aircraft with gas turbine or piston engines
  • B1.1 – (Mechanical) fixed-wing aircraft with gas turbine engines,
  • B1.2 – (Mechanical) fixed-wing aircraft with piston engines,
  • B1.3 – (Mechanical) rotary-wing aircraft with gas turbine engines,
  • B1.4 – (Mechanical) rotary-wing aircraft with piston engines,
