Military aircraft are complex and highly capable systems. It requires years of experience to understand what it takes to deliver and sustain airworthy and safe systems. Our knowledge stems from hands-on experience covering everything from defining US Air Force (USAF) policy for airworthiness; developing MIL-HDBK-516; incorporating airworthiness and safety into systems engineering processes in a cost effective and streamlined application; leading first flight independent reviews; performing risk and hazard analysis; chairing airworthiness boards, and certifying systems as airworthy—on manned and unmanned military systems and commercial derivative aircraft (CDA). We have developed the most comprehensive MIL-HDBK-516-based airworthiness certification training in existence and trained current USAF airworthiness personnel.
Our experts have direct experience with certifying USAF systems and commercial derivative aircraft (CDA). We know USAF and FAA processes and have dealt extensively with the US Army and US Navy on developmental processes and airworthiness determinations of joint systems. If your team is facing tough questions like these, we can help.
