FAA FAR 145 – 2 Days


FAA 14 CFR Part 145 (FAR-145) is one of the most mature aviation regulations which underwent a major rewrite released in 2004 which was the most comprehensive change in nearly 20 years. Since that time there have been further amendments to promote harmonisation with its European counterpart EASA Part 145.

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 give delegates a detailed overview of FAR-145 regulation. The training includes many practical examples of FAR-145 Implementation and how to avoid potential problems.

The training will also promote the delegates understanding concerning both airworthiness and maintenance principles, including a thorough understanding of the Role of FAR-145 in all jurisdictions managed by an FAA Regulatory environment as applicable.

Understanding the regulations driving the 145 processes enables you to make the best business decisions and ensure compliance.
