Airworthiness of state/government aircraft

From design to maintenance


This course will enable learners to gain knowledge and understanding of state aircraft (military and state-used): 

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

It covers decrees FRA 21 and FRA M, 145, 66, 147. It covers state regulation (decrees, orders and instructions - FRA), as well as the organization set up to apply this regulation (industry members, interactions, etc.).

It is aimed at engineers and managers/supervisors.


The course lasts 3 days (18 hours).


Decree 2013-367 of 29 April 2013 incorporates and adapts the principles of airworthiness, regulations and authorities for French state aircraft (military or state-used) introduced by the Chicago Convention.

The concept of aircraft airworthiness will be explored by monitoring the life of a state aircraft, from design to operation and maintenance: definition and production certification and the retention of 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/Advanced

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