Sofema Aviation Services (SAS) is pleased to share that the AMC 20-20 Continuing Structural Integrity Programme Training was completed by 12 delegates from SmartLynx Airlines.

The course was delivered as a webinar by our experienced instructor Dobrica Vincic.

What was the training about? 

Upon completing of this training, participants will gain an understanding of the methodology necessary to ensure compliance with the Continuing Structural Integrity Programme. They will become familiar with the roles and responsibilities linked to the management of the Supplemental Structural Inspection Programme (SSIP) and understand its relationship with MSG-3. Additionally, the participants will acquire the skills to effectively assess both the regulatory compliance and the suitability of operators’ Maintenance Programmes. The attendees will achieve a solid understanding of Part-CAMO Continued Airworthiness Management (CAM) and the management of the Continuing Airworthiness Organisation (CAMO) in relation to the Aircraft Maintenance Programme (AMP). This includes leveraging regulations to proactively manage and oversee regulatory compliance related to the AMP and its control processes. The delegates will also understand the activities that support the analysis of Safety Data, including Service Bulletins (SBs) and Airworthiness Directives (ADs). They will also learn about the impact of various elements on the AMP, gaining the ability to assess exposure and viability and identify potential weaknesses within the system. This holistic approach ensures that delegates leave the training equipped to handle the complexities of maintaining structural integrity and airworthiness within the aviation industry. See details
