UK CAA / EASA Airworthiness Introduction

TR23 | 1 day

Many staff employed in continuing airworthiness and/or maintenance support roles have the potential to impact on the organisation’s safety objectives, but are often overlooked when it comes to formal training in regulatory responsibilities; this being an area usually ‘reserved’ for Quality/Compliance Monitoring personnel, Managers or Certifying Staff. This course is designed especially for those ‘overlooked’ staff. It clarifies the UK CAA/EASA airworthiness regulatory systems and highlights how their responsibilities can be as important to aircraft safety as any other person.
