Based on the EU Regulation (EC) 216/2008, the EU Commission has issued, amongst others, the Commission Regulation (EU) 748/2012. It lays down implementing rules for the airworthiness and environmental certification of aircraft and related products, as parts and appliances, as well as for the certification of design and production organisations.
Annexed to this Regulation is the Annex I (Part 21) - Certification of aircraft and related products, parts and appliances. It also addresses design and production organizations in Section A (Technical Requirements) and in Section B (Procedures for Competent Authorities).
This course will explain in general terms the legal and regulatory system, as defined in (EC) 216/2008 and in detail the requirements of Annex I (Part 21), as addressed by Subpart G (Production Organisation Approval) and Subpart F (Production without Production Organisation Approval), including the Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM).
A basic understanding of the subjects dealt with in the training course is an advantage but not necessary.
The training course will be structured as follows:
Module 1 – EASAModule 2 – The legal and regulatory basisModule 3 – Subpart A, GeneralModule 4 – Subpart G, Production Org. ApprovalModule 5 – Subpart F, production without POAModule 6 – Subpart Q, Identification of Prod., etc.Module 7 – Section B, Subpart GModule 8 – Section B, Subpart FModule 9 – Flight Test Operations ManualModule 10 – Appendix XII, Categories of Flight Tests & Flight Test Staff QualificationsModule 11 – EASA POA Procedures
As the approval of production under Subpart G (POA) or Subpart F (Letter of Agreement) is issued by the Competent Authorities of the EASA Member States, also Annex I (Part 21) Section B, Subpart G and Subpart F will be explained. The EASA internal working procedures regarding Production Organisation Approval will be presented as well. This procedure is applicable when the applicant for such an approval is a legal entity in a Non-EASA Member State, e.g. a Third Country.
Also covered in this training course is the issuance of Permits to Fly, the required Flight Test Operations Manual, the Annex I (Part 21) Appendix XII, the categories of flight tests and the associated flight test crew qualifications.
At the end of the training course, the attendees should have a detailed understanding of all the tasks and responsibilities of a production organisation manufacturing products, parts and/or appliances under Subpart G or Subpart F, respectively.
Courses held on location at the customer’s request can be re-structured to allow a dedicated training based on specific needs. Click here for more information.
At the end of the training course, the attendees should understand:
