Airworthiness: An Introduction to Aircraft Certification, A Guide to Understanding JAA, EASA and FAA Standards

Understanding airworthiness is central to maintaining and operating aircraft safely. While no book can replace the published FAR/JAR documentation for airworthiness, this unique guide provides readers with a single reference to understanding and interpreting the airworthiness requirements of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), FAA (the US Federal Aviation Authority) and EASA (European Aircraft Safety Agency). Setting these requirements in a real-world context, the book is an essential contribution to the safety management system of anyone involved in the design, maintenance and operation of aircraft for business or pleasure.

Key topics covered include:

  • Considerations of airworthiness standards for all classes, including large and small aircraft, rotor craft, gliders and unmanned aircraft
  • Type certification of aircraft, engines, and propellers and the type certification process
  • Parts and appliances approval
  • Joint certifications and national certifications
  • Special classes of certificates of airworthiness
  • Airworthiness and flight operations

Airworthiness: An Introduction to Aircraft Certification also covers European and US requirements and helps anyone involved in the manufacture, flying and maintenance of aircraft to understand this complex yet essential topic.
