What is the A.L.A.E?

The Association of Licensed Aircraft Engineers was founded in 1970 as a direct result of pressure being applied to scrap the Aircraft Engineer's Licence. The ALAE is non-political and non-partisan; our ambitions are to raise the status and dignity of our profession. The objectives of the Association are,
  • To establish the professional status of Licensed Aircraft Engineers.
  • To gain for the Licensed Aircraft Engineer recognition within the British aviation industry.
  • To represent Licensed Aircraft Engineers within the British aviation industry.
  • To promote the advancement of the technical knowledge and skills of those engaged in the production, maintenance and operation of aircraft within the means of the Association to do so.
  • To strive at all times towards improvement of the standards of safety in all aspects of aircraft maintenance and operation.
  • To regulate the relations between members of the Association and their employers.
The ALAE is unique in the way in which it represents Licensed Aircraft Engineers and other certifying staff within the aviation industry. In recent times our primary role has been to work in conjunction with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to formulate legislation covering aircraft maintenance engineering within Europe. In this respect we have gained considerable influence with the CAA and also with the European body, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Because of our association with these authorities, we are particularly well informed regarding future legislation likely to affect Licensed Aircraft Engineers.

The ALAE is in a particularly strong position to advise those seeking a career in the aircraft maintenance industry on the possibilities that it offers. Furthermore, in order to give Association members "first shot" at employment vacancies, we have let it be known throughout the industry that we will advertise any industry related employment vacancy in our bi-monthly journal, TECH LOG.
