Cabin Safety Design - Cert. of Interior Changes & Repairs - Small Aeroplanes

Introduction

This 3-day training course will provide the participants with the necessary knowledge how to classify and certify Cabin Interior Design Changes & Repairs for Normal Category Aeroplanes.

The content of the training course is based on the conditions that the aeroplane to be changed or repaired is having a valid Certificate of Airworthiness and that the design change or repair is classified as minor or major in accordance with Annex I (Part 21) Subpart D, and in case of a major change designed by somebody else than the TC Holder as a STC in accordance with Subpart E.

In this course the classification of interior changes and repairs into minor, major or significant will be explained in detail as well as the relevant paragraphs of CS-23, Certification Specifications for Normal Category Aeroplanes (Amendment 4), e.g. those paragraphs who may require a showing and verification of compliance, will be presented and highlighted with practical examples.

Course Content

The following subjects will be addressed:

  • Introduction: Overview of the training course.
  • EASA, organisation, structure and responsibilities.
  • The legal and regulatory basis for the EASA EU Member States.
  • Explanation of all relevant Annex I (Part 21) Subparts, e.g. Subpart A, Subpart D, Subpart E, Subpart K, Subpart M, Subpart P and Subpart Q amended with Operational Suitability Data Requirements, Flight Test Operations Manual, Categories of Flight Tests and Flight Test Staff Qualifications.
  • Overview and detailed explanation of the relevant CS-23 paragraphs of Subpart C - Structure; Subpart D - Design & Construction; Subpart F – Equipment and Subpart G - Operating Limitations and Information which may require a showing of compliance in conjunction with a change or repair design.
  • EASA Internal STC approval procedures.
  • Practical examples of stretcher and galley testing etc.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the training course the attendees should have the capability to classify changes and repairs to cabin interiors into minor, major or significant, identify the applicable CS-23 paragraphs requiring a showing and a verification of compliance, and have a general understanding of the possible Means of Compliance with CS-23

Who should take this course

Design (engineering) organisations having an EASA DOA or ADOA approval or considering to apply for such an approval. The training is of importance to the management of such organisations, e.g. Head of the Design Organisation, Chief Independent Design Assurance monitoring and Chief Office of Airworthiness, as well as engineering staff, Office of Airworthiness staff and Compliance Verification Engineers (CVE).

The training is also valuable to engineering organisations in third countries (non-EASA Member States) involved in the designing of changes and repairs to large aeroplanes and the staff of Civil Aviation Authorities located in those third countries responsible for the approval of these changes and repairs.

Pre-requisites

Some knowledge regarding Annex I (Part 21) and CS-23  is an advantage but not necessary.

Duration

3 days, starting each day at 9:00 hrs and ending on day 1 and 2 at at 17:00 hrs and on day 3 at approximately 16:00 hrs.

NOTE:   On special request this 3 day course can be extended by 1 or 2 days to address also changes and repairs to either Large  Aeroplanes (CS-25 Amendment 20) and/or Small and Large Rotorcraft (CS-27 & CS-29 both at Amendment 4)
