It is my privilege to introduce one of the pioneering educational institute of AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE ENGINEERING popularly known as the “PUNE INSTITUTE OF AVIATION TECHNOLOGY” owing its origin to the western part of India. I feel proud that our Institute is approved by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, (D.G.C.A.) Government of India, which boasts of best training aids, operational aircraft, engine & highly qualified Instructors. The Institute set up is based on the guidelines laid down and amended from time to time by D.G.C.A. in civil aviation requirements. Our academic staff continue to provide the highest standard of teaching to students and continue to defy industry odds with record placements year after year.

Since the Institute establishment in 2008 it has continued to supply the aviation industry in the region with a large number of graduates holding unique specialized  aviation license qualifications.

Education with proper training makes an individual perfect. Aviation industry is a sector where passenger’s safety is paramount. Safety of passengers is directly related to the safety of an aircraft which in turn is related to the AME who certifies that aircraft. I always believe that aviation safety is a learned behavior and  it demands a constant focus and true commitment from the people in the aviation industry.

I have observed that certifying the aircraft is a high profile job which requires proper training with in-depth knowledge of latest technology and safety awareness. If these qualities are inculcated in your character, they are inseparable throughout your life and help you make the best AME.

PUNE IAT is firmly committed and dedicated to give world class AME’s.

There is more scope for development in this relatively modern aviation industry, as compared to other industries. In my capacity as a Founder Director I do my best to implement the government policy, as developed under the Indian Civil Aviation laws, in facilitating specialized education and training for students around the globe.

We strongly believe in our motto WHY RUN ?….. YOU CAN FLY !

My best wishes for great career in aviation.
