Airworthiness Review - Essential Principles and Techniques

TT10 | 2 days

Increasingly, regulators and organisations are asking what makes a good Airworthiness Review and how staff may be deemed competent to carry out Airworthiness Reviews and the certification process.  It is an activity that requires specific knowledge as well as the ability to translate the knowledge into tangible skills. This practical course addresses both these elements, providing a comprehensive look at what it means to be competent to undertake an effective Airworthiness Review.

How will this course benefit me?

Drawing on Baines Simmons’ extensive experience of undertaking aircraft surveys for a variety of clients, including those on behalf of the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry, this course provides a look at the regulatory requirements in the context of focusing on the hands-on, essential skills required to undertake a review competently and effectively.
Completing this course will enable you to:

  • Perform Airworthiness Reviews in an effective, competent and meaningful manner
  • Satisfy the Competent Authority that you have the right competence for this activity


Key areas of focus

  • Regulatory foundations – Part-CAMO and Part-M Subpart I, Airworthiness Review process and requirements for Airworthiness Review Staff.
  • Planning for a review – what information is required and how it may be presented.
  • Assessing your findings – appreciating the significance and impact upon airworthiness
  • Concluding your review – is the aircraft airworthy?

An optional third day can be added to the course to allow participants to practise their skills with a real aircraft. Speak to a Baines Simmons Consultant for more information. This option is not available at the Aviation Safety Academy.
