FAA / EASA Part 145 Differences Course – 2 Days

Introduction –

Recognising that a common set of standards would not only benefit the aviation industry economically, but also preserve a high level of safety, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) began an effort in 1988 to harmonize their respective aviation standards.

With the JAA becoming defunct in 2009, and the European Community(EC) adopting the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), an agreement between the USA and the EC on cooperation in the regulation of civil aviation safety was reached in 2011.

Though much work has been done to gain common ground, there are significant differences between the USA 14 CFR Part 145 and EASA Part 145.

This two-day course provides a comprehensive explanation of these differences between the two regulations which is essential for organisations certificated by both authorities to ensure that their personnel understand them in their entirety and recognise the differences to avoid situations of non-compliance.

By understanding the regulations which drive the 145 process will enable your organisation to make the best business decisions and maintain compliance.
