FAA Part 21 Certification Procedures for Products and Parts

2024-12-09
The aerospace industry is hinged around compliance with Part 21; however, comprehension of Part 21 and its role in civil certification is challenging. This course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the processes that encompass aircraft certification, including compliance with FARs, certification procedures and post certification responsibilities. It is also intended to introduce participants to the many regulatory issues upon which companies make business decisions that can be derailed by failing to see the part 21 implications.

Safety Risk Management and Safety Assurance for Design, Manufacturing and Maintenance Providers in Aviation

2024-09-19
A Safety Management System (SMS) is a high-level, top-down decision-making system based on proactively identifying, assessing, and controlling hazards and safety risks in the design, manufacturing, and maintenance environments. These systems are designed to prevent accidents and incidents and analyze performance data for continuous improvement. According to FAA AC No: 120-92B, Safety Management Systems for Aviation Service Providers, safety risk management (SRM) is a process within the Safety Management System composed of describing the system, identifying the hazards, and analyzing, assessing, and controlling the risk.

Safety Management Systems for Design, Manufacturing and Maintenance Providers in Aviation

2024-09-16
A Safety Management System (SMS) is a high-level, top-down decision-making system based on proactively identifying, assessing, and controlling hazards and safety risks in the design, manufacturing, and maintenance environments. These systems are designed to prevent accidents and incidents and analyze performance data for continuous improvement. Safety Management Systems have become an internationally recognized means to improve hazard and risk identification, risk management and safety assurance. The SMS approach promotes a proactive and systematic approach to managing safety throughout the lifecycle of an aircraft or system.
