This course covers the Federal Aviation Administration’s organization, authority, and process for promulgating rules, then explains how the general requirements in Title 14 of the US Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) link together in a “regulatory chain” that must be understood by aviation businesses. Topics specific to maintenance include Part 43 (maintenance, preventive maintenance, rebuilding, and alteration); Part 65, Subpart D (certification of mechanics); Part 65, Subpart E (certification of repairmen); and Part 145 (repair stations).

Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, participants will have learned:

  • The US civil aviation safety regulatory organization and structure
  • The minimum standards that directly and indirectly affect day-to-day work
  • The differences between regulatory requirements and  requirements created by contract and other legal obligations
