CCAR-145 / EASA-145 / FAR-145 Differences – 1 Day


Though there has been some harmonization over the years with Part 145 aviation regulations, particularly with the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), still differences exist.
With the growth seen in China for aviation over the years, many organizations are now certificated by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) as well as by the FAA and the EASA.
All three regulations are slightly different and therefore personnel should not only be able to understand them in their entirety, but also be able to recognize the differences to avoid situations of non-compliance.
Our training courses are focused on the practical delivery of a specific understanding of the regulation which allows the organization to ensure compliance with the regulation whilst at the same time developing optimized organizational processes.
The aim of the course is to help delegates understand the differences and peculiarities between the three regulations concerning both airworthiness and maintenance principles.
Understanding the regulations driving the 145 processes enables you to make the best business decisions and ensure compliance.

Who is this course for?

The course is for aviation professionals, including maintenance managers, quality control personnel, and maintenance technicians, who are involved in aircraft maintenance organizations or repair stations. The course aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the differences and specific requirements between the Civil Aviation Regulations of China (CCAR-145), the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA-145), and the Federal Aviation Regulations of the United States (FAR-145) to ensure compliance with the respective regulations and enhance the safety and airworthiness of aircraft.

This course will provide the participants with comprehensive knowledge of the specific requirements and variations in regulations between China, Europe, and the United States.
