How will this course benefit me?
The CAMO plays an essential role in the safeguarding of aircraft certification standards, ensuring high levels of availability and underpinning aviation safety, whilst minimising maintenance costs.

Aircraft reliability and safety do not come naturally; you have to work at them. A value-adding CAMO makes the difference between believing your aircraft are serviceable and knowing that you have control of continuing airworthiness.

This 3 day course is focused on the continuous improvement of aircraft safety and availability by the CAMO, exploiting the data provided by existing systems and empowering your people to creatively manage the airworthiness of your fleet. You will develop a fresh approach to the active management of aircraft reliability, thereby underpinning safe operations. It is techniques-based, designed to develop the competencies of those involved in airworthiness management.

This course will give you the skills to successfully develop existing systems to facilitate the implementation of an effective Airworthiness Management System so that as an organisation you can:

• Improve aircraft availability, whilst minimizing ineffective tasks and reducing maintenance costs
• Eliminate recurring faults / improve Maintenance Programme effectiveness
• Effectively interface with Military Type Certificate Holders, Flight Operations and Maintainers
• Improve the Regulators’ confidence in your organisation


Key areas of focus
• The role of the CAMO in relation to Design, Maintenance and Air Operations organisations
• The Maintenance Programme and its development
• Handling repetitive defects, analysing data and developing solutions
• CAMO interface with Designers, Maintainers, Suppliers and Air Operators
• Contracting to un-approved suppliers and assurance activities
