Product Description


" ... introduces aerospace engineering students and engineers into this world consisting, on the one hand, of designers, manufacturers and operators, and on the other, of airworthiness authorities, in two disciplines that should work in unison, because they should aim at a common goal: flight safety. The book discusses certification regulations, the agencies that write them and the agencies that verify they are followed from aircraft design to construction." - Aviation Safety World, November 2006

Product Description

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 Organisation), 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
• JAR/FAR 21
• 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

* The only airworthiness guide available: a real contribution to understanding flight safety
* Covers European and US requirements and helps anyone involved in the manufacture, flying and maintenance of aircraft to understand this complex yet essential topic
* No aircraft can fly without the correct certificate of airworthiness

5.0 out of 5 stars Airworthiness 16 May 2009
By Juice
I purchased this book to help me understand the different regulations that govern airworthiness and how they are related within the civil aviation industry. I am still reading the book but I am enjoying the way it is written and it provides readers with a good basic understanding of the subject. The book also references useful reading material for those that want to know more about the subject at a much deeper level.

Overall, I am pleased with the material I have read so far and this book will be a valuable reference material in my career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately I discovered the book too late 16 Jan 2009
By BAPST CEDRIC - Published on
When EASA Part-21 entered into force in my country, I had to qualify the company I was managing then as design organization. Back then, it was really hard to have clearly in mind "how all that work".

I just found about this book. The table of content made me think that this book was just what I needed. When I read it, it definitely enlighten me on details I misunderstood before. Actually, this book properly gives a very good overview from Design, Engineering and Maintenance in aviation.

I'd wish that I discovered this book in 2004!
