NEW from Sofema Aviation Services – U.S. 14CFR FAA Part 145 training!
Kevin Rookes an Aviation Safety Specialist for Hong Kong Safety & Risk Consulting (HSRC) authored this FAA training material at Sofema Aviation Services request.
Kevin’s past working experience in the capacity of FAA accepted Chief Inspector / Quality Manager for Rolls-Royce allowed him to develop the training material in a ‘key-word’ type format so that the FAR-145 rules can be better understood.
In addition, the material makes reference to FAA Order 8900.1 which is the FAA Inspector’s ‘bible’ when carrying out an initial certification inspection or an inspection for re-certification.
The training also includes a multi-choice test to verify the delegates understanding of the training received.
I am proud to have authored this FAA training material and delivery to the Quality Assurance team from Silk Way Technics in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Introduction to the U.S. 14CFR FAA Part 145 Training
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.
The training focuses on the practical delivery of a specific understanding of the regulation which allows a FAA Certificated Air Agency to ensure compliance to the regulation whilst at the same time developing optimized organisational processes.
The aims of the course are to give delegates a detailed overview of the FAR-145 regulation. The training includes many practical examples of FAR-145 implementation and how to avoid potential problems.
The training also promotes 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 regulations driving the 145 process enables you to make the best business decisions and to ensure compliance.
