Course overview

What is Airworthiness?

Airworthiness has two main domains; Initial Airworthiness and Continuing Airworthiness. Initial Airworthiness is when the aircraft, engine or propeller conforms to the approved design. The main focus is on design and production aspects. Continuing Airworthiness means all of the processes ensuring that, at any time in its operating life, the aircraft complies with the airworthiness requirements in force and is a condition for safe operation.
