NIAR & FAA Workshops
In recent years, the FAA
has been working with industry experts on training standards for
awareness of critical safety issues in composite maintenance. A working
group which includes Airbus, Boeing, FAA and EASA has been addressing
related engineering issues over the last two years. Workshops in 2004,
2005 and 2006 were used to coordinate these efforts with industry.
time, this interface with the industry will document current industry
practices and expand the training, guidance and policy for composite
damage tolerance and maintenance.
The FAA Joint Advanced
Materials & Structures (JAMS) Center of Excellence has also
supported Composite Safety & Certification Initiatives (CS&CI)
in these areas with research on critical technical issues and the
development of training standards. Similar to last year’s workshop, the
2007 workshop will help direct future JAMS research and training
developments. As efforts progress, additional workshops will be held
with composite experts from the field to periodically review CS&CI
progress in these areas.
A summary of these workshops, including participants, agendas and available presentations are featured on this website.
