Vanilla airworthiness strategy

Details

This airworthiness strategy describes how the type airworthiness authority (TAA) intends to comply with Military Aviation Authority (MAA) regulatory publications (MRP) requirements to manage airworthiness through appropriate arrangements for safety management, use of recognised standards, competence of staff and independent assurance.

It will also outline the key airworthiness activities through life, covering the establishment of type airworthiness, assurance of production quality, the continued airworthiness of the type in-service and the assurance of those aspects of continuing airworthiness for which the Vanilla project team (PT) will have responsibility.

This strategy remains a ‘living document’ that will be reviewed on an annual basis and prior to key project stages (and confirmed at the annual 2-star airworthiness review) to reflect new regulation, organisational change, changes within the project and experience.
