This course provides details for direct and indirect effects of aircraft lightning testing and certification. Requirements for both composite and metallic aircraft, including proper RTCA/DO-160 classifications, are examined. The course will also include a high-level overview of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), High-Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF), Precipitation Static (P-Static) and Electrical Bonding requirements. The new requirements of Electrical Wiring and Installation System (EWIS) and Fuel Tank Safety (14 CFR 25.981 Amd. 102) will also be addressed.April 8-12, 2024, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport Southcenter
This course studies the basic principles of propulsion systems with emphasis on jets and fan systems. It also includes the study of inlets and nozzles, compressors, burners, fuels, turbines and jets culminating in design and off-design engine analysis, performance and environmental considerations. The impact of propulsion system integration on external aerodynamics and (noise and IR) signature reduction is also presented, along with an introduction to novel concepts in propulsion.April 8-12, 2024, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport Southcenter
This course provides an overview of aircraft structural external loads analysis including: criteria, design, analysis, fatigue, certification, validation, and testing. It covers CFR Part 25 airplane load requirements and the historical CFR Part 23 requirements which are the basis of the current ASTM standards. These concepts are applicable to many military structural requirements, UAV's, and other experimental or novel configuration aircraft.
This course focuses on the requirements and methods that can be used to demonstrate compliance to 14 CFR 25.1709 (EWIS Safety Analysis). The discussion will examine the use of FAA AC 25.1701-1 to prepare a Functional and Physical Analysis. The course will also include an overview of the EWIS requirements included in 14 CFR Part 25, subpart H.
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are comprised of an unmanned vehicle (UAV), a manned control element(s), and various data and control links. Although unmanned, the vehicle is still an aircraft and must be tested with the same rigor and precision as manned systems. However, being "unmanned" and being part of an integrated system, UAVs demand unique flight test approaches that present corresponding challenges.
This course will provide an overall understanding of the 14 CFR Part 21 requirements necessary to obtain design, production and airworthiness approvals for civil aviation products and articles. Title 14, CFR Part 21 regulations are the backbone of the regulatory framework that enables Aircraft Certification Service (AIR) to conduct its certification responsibilities on products and articles. Under 14 CFR Part 21, §21.1, the FAA defines a product as an aircraft, engine or propeller, while an article means a material, part, component, process or appliance. In addition to 14 CFR Part 21, this course will delve into certain aspects of 14 CFR Part 43, outlining the requirements to receive approval for alterations/repairs for civil aviation products and articles. An overview is provided on FAA organizational structure, additional 14 CFR Parts, regulatory/guidance material, and rulemaking procedures.April 8-11, 2024, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport Southcenter
