Monday Dec. 9
Certification Tutorial 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Provides an overview of the subjects of certification, regulations, design substantiation, and essentials of production and maintenance delivered by subject experts, with an emphasis on structural substantiation. Design substantiation covers many discussion points, including, for example, survivability, the importance of achieving repeatable results, and lightning protection requirements. The linkage among design, production, and maintenance functions in the context of unique material properties of composite materials has long been recognized as a critical part of safe and efficient certification. Developing an awareness of regulations and their role is another essential understanding for practitioners engaged in certifying aircraft.
