What is an airworthiness certificate?
Issued by the FAA to an aircraft that has been proven to meet the minimum design and manufacturing requirements and is in condition for safe operation.
What is the difference between a standard and special airworthiness certificate?
Standard airworthiness certificates are issued for normal, utility, acrobatic, commuter, or transport category aircraft.
Special airworthiness certificates are issued for primary, restricted, or limited category aircraft and light sport aircraft.
Does an airworthiness certificate have an expiration date?
No. It remains valid so long as the aircraft remains in airworthy condition. 14 CFR parts 21, 43, and 91
Where must the airworthiness certificate be located?
It must be displayed in the cabin or cockpit entrance so that it is viewable to all occupants.
For an aircraft to be considered airworthy, what two conditions must be met?
The aircraft must conform to its type design (type certificate)
The aircraft must be in a condition for safe operation, referring to the condition of the aircraft in relation to wear and deterioration.
Explain how a pilot determines if an aircraft conforms to its approved type design and is in a condition for safe operation.
For type design, a pilot must determine that the maintenance, preventative maintenance, and alterations have been performed in accordance with 14 CFR Parts 21, 43, and 91, and that the aircraft is registered in the U.S. The pilot ensures that all required inspections, maintenance, preventative maintenance, repairs, and alterations have been documented in the aircrafts maintenance records.
For safe operation, the pilot conducts a thorough preflight inspection of the aircraft for wear and deterioration, structural damage, fluid leaks, tire wear, inoperative instruments and equipment, etc.
What records or documents should be checked to determine that the owner or operator of an aircraft has complied with all required inspections and airworthiness directives?
The maintenance records (aircraft and engine log books). Each owner or operator of an aircraft shall ensure that maintenance personnel make appropriate entries in the aircraft maintenance records indicating the aircraft has been approved to return to service.
Who is responsible for ensuring that an aircraft is maintained in an airworthy condition?
The owner or operator of an aircraft is primarily responsible for maintaining an aircraft in airworthy condition.
What are "Airworthiness Directives" (ADs)?
An AD is the medium the FAA uses to notify aircraft owners and other potentially interested persons of unsafe conditions that may exist because of design defects, maintenance, or other causes, and to specify the conditions under which the product may continue to be operated. ADs are regulatory in nature, and compliance is mandatory. It is the aircraft owner's or operator's responsibility to ensure compliance with all pertinent ADs. ADs are divided into two categories: those of an emergency nature requiring immediate compliance prior to further flight and those of a less urgent nature requiring compliance within a specified period of time.
