FAA UAE Regulations 09

Brochure Button

An FAA Technical Standing Order (TSO) EASA European Technical Standing Order (ETSO) is a minimum performance standard for specified materials, parts, and appliances used on civil aircraft.

When authorised to manufacture a material, part, or appliance to a TSO/ETSO standard, this is referred to as TSO/ETSO authorisation. Receiving such authorisation is both design and production approval.

This ½ Day Training Course considers the process by which TSO/ETSO authority is issued, together with the process for certification - Where the TSOA article reflects a major change to type design, it may require a supplemental type certificate (STC) in order to approve the installation/modification data.

The USA may accept foreign-produced articles when the FAA itself has approved the design (using a Letter of Design Approval or LODA) and the United States has signed a bilateral agreement with the foreign nation that accepts LODA designs that are produced under the foreign airworthiness authority’s manufacturing oversight.
