IFA Forum on Critical Interfaces for Continuing Airworthiness


From 3-4 November 2015, the International Federation of Airworthiness (IFA) held its annual Workshop and Forum in Hong Kong, at the headquarters of the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department.

Ninety participants from Asia and around the world explored together the theme: ‘Continuing Airworthiness – Critical Interfaces’.  The topics were:

  • Risk-based oversight
  • The critical interface between design and maintenance
  • The critical interface between operation and maintenance
  • The critical interface between an operator and its maintenance subcontractor.

My presentation was called: ‘Designer’s Secrets Maintainers Should Know’.  Please click the ‘Papers’ tab to find it.  The other presentations are available in the Members area of the IFA’s web site.  It’s one more reason to join the IFA!
