Aeronautical regulation - certification - quality control - 2019

Airworthiness of state/government aircraft and of civil aircraft

From design to maintenance


The airworthiness of aircraft must be established and maintained within a regulatory context.

This course aims to provide knowledge and understanding of civil and state aircraft (military and state-used):

  • The concept of airworthiness
  • The regulatory system
  • The aeronautical authorities

It is aimed at engineers and managers/supervisors.


The course lasts 4 days (24 hours).


The concepts of airworthiness, regulations and authorities will be introduced by way of the corresponding ICAO annexes.

Decree no. 2006-1551 of 7 December 2006 with the principles of airworthiness, regulations and authorities introduced by ICAO annexes integrated and adapted for French state aircraft.

The application of this principle, as voted by the European Parliament for civil or decree-issued aircraft and state aircraft by-laws, will take place through the monitoring of an aircraft from design to operation and maintenance:

  • Definition and production certification
  • Maintaining this certification in terms of operation and maintenance

The concepts of organizational approval for design, production, operation and maintenance studied in the context of the state.


Course level: Basic

All engineers and managers/supervisors from the aeronautical industries; no prior training required in the field.
