The European Defence Agency (EDA) issued EMAR M requirements in 2015.
These requirements outline how airworthiness of military aircraft is to be maintained and the conditions to be met by organisations involved in their continuing airworthiness management. The European Military Airworthiness Requirements set the foundations for a step change in the way military aircraft are designed and manufactured, their Airworthiness is managed, and the way in which they are maintained.

Based on the proven European civil regulations, the EMARs provide the potential to enable the armed forces to get more out of their aviation assets, whilst achieving significant savings. The detailed technical requirements can be interpreted as merely “a new way of doing the things we’ve always done” or they can be implemented in a manner that reaps tangible benefits. Understanding how the whole airworthiness system works to support aircraft end-users, and how the various stakeholders interact in a cohesive and effective manner, is the first step to reaping the potential benefits. Our unique approach to a performance-focused and practical implementation of regulations can help MAA’s and wider Ministries of Defence set the foundations for performance, and to achieve the real benefits enjoyed by commercial aircraft operators.
