Continuous Airworthiness Management for Airworthiness Review Staff (Large A/C)

This course is designed to specifically focus on the needs of persons required to perform Airworthiness Review and to Issue Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC).

Airworthiness Review Staff are authorised by the Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO) and accepted by the Regulatory Authority or Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to perform Airworthiness Reviews on aircraft which are listed on the CAMO approval certificate or the Air Operators Certificate (AOC).

To be approved to carry out airworthiness reviews and if applicable, to issue permits to fly, an approved CAMO shall have appropriate airworthiness review staff to issue airworthiness review certificates or to make recommendations to the regulatory authority as appropriate.

As part of the approval process, the CAA must formally accept the person nominated to be an Airworthiness Review signatory. This process will involve performing an airworthiness review under supervision to ensure both the procedure and process meet the requirements.

Airworthiness Review Staff must be able to demonstrate “appropriate” recent “Continuing Airworthiness” management experience (records shall be maintained.) experience in continuing airworthiness’ means any appropriate combination of experience in tasks related to aircraft maintenance and/or continuing airworthiness management and/or surveillance of such tasks. (Note the use of the word appropriate provides a degree of flexibility however the CAA will ultimately accept or not as they decide.)

The course delivers a detailed practical understanding of EASA Regulations relevant to the Part M Environment. An understanding of the maintenance organisations responsibilities, contracted arrangements, and a thorough understanding of the organizational responsibilities associated with Part M compliance including the various options related to the management of the Airworthiness Review Certificate Process

The course is focused and stimulating, very practical and participation is encouraged.
