The requirements for producing an FAA approved replacement part can be daunting. Understanding the steps required in the FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) process can greatly streamline the approval life-cycle and reduce unnecessary costs and delays, thereby shortening the time and cost to market. This course is designed for those organizations and individuals interested in designing and manufacturing replacement parts for civil aviation aircraft.
This two-day course covers the crucial subjects and steps of the FAA-PMA approval process. The instructor will begin with an overview of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) organizational structure. The instructor will then guide participants through the roles and responsibilities of the PMA applicant, Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), Manufacturing Inspection District Office (MIDO), Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), and the Aircraft Evaluation Group (AEG) as outlined in FAA policies, guidelines, and requirements leading to FAA-PMA approvals. In addition, the instructor will present the necessary topics to be covered in all PMA engineering analyses including Approval by Identicality, Licensing Agreement, and Test and Computation. Throughout this course the instructor will combine classroom lecture with real-world examples to provide participants both a formal as well as practical learning experience.
