European Airworthiness Control for the 1900's 880936
The commercial pressures have never been so great. As liberalisation spreads, operators are created and doomed, or merge to survive, rather reminiscent of the immediate post World War II era.
Although regulatory authorities are assured of survival, they too are being subjected to unprecedented pressures from the whole of the aviation industry as well as increasing public pressure for improved safety standards.
This paper seeks to identify some of the key developments and problems in airworthiness matters as UK moves towards much closer ties with Europe, including the control of maintenance standards and making the best use of technical resources.
