Aircraft maintenance technician is a profession that needs to be licensed according to international aviation organizations. Aircraft Maintenance Training standards are awarded according to the standards set by EASA Part 66/ 147 as determined by the European Aviation Agency (EASA). It has been published in SHY66/ 147 by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in Turkey, which contains documents similar to EASA. Aircraft Maintenance Technician examinations (SHY66 Module Exams) can be carried out by SHY147 Basic Training Institutions which is authorized by the DGCA. DGCA has granted Anadolu University as the authority to make exams in Turkey. The study was carried out in order to determine the exam system perceptions of candidates who entered the SHY66 Module Examinations, which provides Air Vehicle Maintenance Training in Turkey. In the first part of the study, with international and national standards for aircraft technician training was provided with literature. In the second part, survey dimensions developed to measure the test system perception are explained. In the third part, the questionnaire designed to determine the perceptions of the candidates of the aircraft maintenance technicians who entered SHY66 Module Examination was analyzed. The survey was completed by 506 technician candidates. With the results of the analysis, suggestions have been made to develop examinations for SHY66 Module Examinations.
