THE syllabus issued by the Air Ministry stipulates that the qualifications required to be held by the candidate for a ground engineer's licence in “C” category are: (1) an intimate knowledge of the constructional and assembly details of the engine to be included in the licence; and (2) the installation, operation, and maintenance of that engine in an aircraft. This specialised knowledge must be obtained by practical experience in the engine shop, aircraft shop, and on the aerodrome, and proofs of actual engagement in these spheres will be required by the Air Ministry Examining Board.
