Since the new European Union (EU) Aerodrome Certification requirements were enacted, Competent Authority (CAA, NAA, CA) Inspectors have conducted their first round of oversight audits and inspections against the new Rules and Requirements, and also needed to comply with new Implementing Rules (IR’s) for Competent Authorities, i.e. Authority Requirements (AR’s).  They may also have experienced a Standardisation Audit or Inspection conducted by EASA auditors.

Feedback from inspectors shows that, on the one hand, there is still some uncertainty and inconsistency in interpretation and application of the rules, but on the other hand, both inspectors and aerodrome operators are evolving pragmatic practices to ensure that operations continue, changes are made, and deviations managed safely and efficiently.

Using these lessons learned, this 2-day course is designed to explore some of the practical and pragmatic approaches to applying the rules for oversight, conducting audits and inspections, assessing applications for change and managing deviations.  The training is built around representative examples used to facilitate participants’ engagement in sharing their experiences of problems encountered, and solutions used to overcome these hurdles.  It will provide attendees with effective tools to further develop their oversight programmes, assessment capabilities and auditing skills.
