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.
This book provides the airworthiness engineering practitioner with a useful summary of all facits of aircraft maintenance administration. Normally aircraft maintenance engineers and all others concerned with aircraft airworthiness certification issues are required to consult numerous specialist publications to accrue the information contained within this book, under a single cover. Although the author has clearly directed the subject matter towards 'aircraft certification' a separate chapter dedicated to the certification responsibilities of aircraft maintenance technicians and engineers would have been of immense value to all those involved in airworthiness and the certification process, hence the reason for not quite being able to awarding the 'five star' rating. Nevertheless this book achieves its primary objective in offering a clearly arranged overview and guidance for all those involved with aircraft certification and airworthiness issues.
This book gives good summary of today EASA vs. FAA legislation as well as linking past JAA function with today EASA. This book better clarifies initial airworthiness than continuing airworthiness. Overall a good book
