Airworthiness has, in recent years, become an increasingly broad and complex discipline with relatively little guidance and literature available to the airworthiness professional in the field. Because of this, airworthiness is typically understood and articulated by the industry in silos, at the detriment of achieving greater aircraft safety levels and more cost-effective operations. Breaking down these silos is therefore fundamental to knowing how to maximise the returns from your airworthiness activities and investment.
This new 5-day course is delivered by a team of Baines Simmons’ initial and continuing airworthiness experts, affording you an unparalleled opportunity to benefit from their own professional practical experience as well as insights gleaned from many clients with whom they have engaged on airworthiness issues.
How will this course benefit me?
Responding to our clients’ needs for a more in-depth look at airworthiness in all its guises, this
course will help you to understand best practices across the spectrum of airworthiness, bridging
gaps in understanding in order to facilitate thinking around what airworthiness system performance can – and should - deliver to your organisation.
Completing this course will change how you view and value airworthiness activities in your organisation and enable you to contribute to:
  • Improved performance of your organisational approval through a better understanding of the various interfaces that you need to work with
  • Enhanced decision-making on airworthiness activities
  • Greater ability to inform and assure yourself of the risks posed by your contractors and subcontractors
  • Unwanted business losses reduced by identifying and mitigating potential risks
  • Organisational efficiency improved through reductions in rework
  • Improved Regulator confidence due to your organisation being able to demonstrate greater understanding and compliance with the regulations
Key areas of focus
  •  What is Airworthiness?
  • Design and Production Processes and Type Certification
  • The role of the Operator and Certificate of Airworthiness
  • Performance of Maintenance
  • Preventing Accidents and Accident Investigation
  • Retirement and Disposal
Is this course right for me?
