FAR Part 39 Airworthiness Directives

FAR smallAmong all the various maintenance requirements for aircraft, Airworthiness Directives - or ADs, as they are referred - are most important. FAA inspectors and aircraft leasing companies are very keen to take a look at an aircraft’s AD status at the very start of their inspection.

This training explains what ADs are, how they are issued, why they are being issued and how they should be implemented on aircraft. It also focuses on the FAA AD process, and 14 CFR Part 39 rules concerning ADs.

Who is the Course for?

Aircraft Owners/Operators; Airline Personnel and Repair Station Personnel responsible for determining the applicability of AD’s, complying with AD’s, and recording AD’s.
