EASA Part 26 / CS 26 Regulatory Training for Large Aeroplanes Additional Airworthiness Specifications for Operations – 1 Day

Note for CAMO Staff – Recommended to complete first the following Training

AMC-20-20 (available online with www.sofemaonline.com  – 1 Day


EASA Part 26 establishes requirements for support of the continued airworthiness of and safety improvements for Large Aircraft and may include airworthiness requirements:

  • Performing assessments
  • Developing design changes,
  • Revisions to Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA), and making necessary documentation available to affected persons. Requirements of this part that establish standards for design changes and revisions

EASA Part 26 / CS 26 Requirements may be applicable to the following:

  • Holders of type certificates and supplemental type certificates.
  • Design Organisations
  • Operators Regulation (EU) no 2015/640 establishes additional airworthiness specifications for operations and contains two annexes.
  • Annex I (Part 26), Subpart A, is devoted to general provisions on the appropriate authority, temporarily inoperative equipment and demonstration of conformity.
  • Subpart B focuses on large aircraft and contains specifications related to seats, berths, seat belts and harnesses; location, access and markings of emergency exits; emergency interior lighting and operation of emergency lights; interiors hold; flammability of the coatings of cargo compartments; fire protection for toilets; acoustic warning of the landing gear and systems for opening and closing the flight crew compartment door – incapacitation of a crew member.
  • Annex II contains an amendment to Annex III (part ORO) of Regulation (EU) No. 965/2012.

Regulation (EU) 2020/1159 added requirements related to the continuing structural integrity of ageing aircraft throughout their operational life to address the following with the objective of preventing catastrophic failures due to fatigue, including widespread fatigue and corrosion

  • Damage tolerance evaluations
  • Widespread fatigue damage
  • Corrosion prevention.

Who is the Course for?

Operators CAMO Staffs and other persons with an interest in understanding Additional Airworthiness Specifications for Operations, Quality & Safety Personnel, Members of the Regulatory Authority, CAMO Engineering and Planning Staff.
