What is Part CAMO?
Part CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation) approval refers to a regulatory certification granted to organisations involved in the management and oversight of the continuing airworthiness of aircraft. It is governed by aviation authorities, such as the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and outlines the requirements and standards for organisations responsible for the maintenance and airworthiness of aircraft fleets. Part CAMO approval involves demonstrating compliance with specific regulations related to airworthiness management, maintenance programs, records keeping, and safety management systems. It ensures that the organisation has the necessary processes, procedures, and qualified personnel to effectively manage the ongoing airworthiness of aircraft, including maintenance planning, defect rectification, and compliance monitoring. Part CAMO approval is critical for ensuring the continued airworthiness and safe operation of aircraft within the regulatory framework.
This course provides delegates with an understanding of the revised structure of (EU) 1321/2014 Continuing Airworthiness Regulations and provides a focus on Annex Vc (Part CAMO). The course will explain the new regulations together with the changes from the previous regulation and will help delegates prepare themselves for demonstrating compliance. The course will also explain how SMS and occurrence reporting is addressed.
This course is suitable for individuals working in, or with oversight of, Continuing Airworthiness Management of Aircraft either as part of an AOC or as a stand-alone organisation.
