Faa assessments of eu member national aviation authorities naa

FAA Assessments of EU Member National Aviation Authorities (NAA)

  • To date the FAA has completed 14 assessments of the National Aviation Authorities of the original 15 European Union (EU) member countries:

    Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom

  • The assessments have been satisfactory with some minor findings that are not be expected to delay a future agreement with the European Commission.

Maintenance organization approvals in europe subject to the basa mip

Maintenance Organization Approvals in Europe Subject to the BASA/MIP

  • Current Discussions:

    • FAA and EASA have been engaged in developing a revision to the current MIP agreements.

    • Planning to revise the MIP agreements for France, Germany, and Ireland.

    • The discussions are focused on EASA part 145 and revised FAR part 145.

    • The FAA and EASA are working towards minimizing the differences between EASA part 145 and FAR part 145.

Basa mip

BASA/MIP

  • October 2004

    • FAA/EASA convened a meeting with representatives from France, Germany, and Ireland

      Topic of discussion was revision of the current MIPs.

    • Identify new Special Conditions

    • Identify a process to revise the MIP

    • Discuss the MIP process

    • How to proceed from here! (EASA is in discussion with the European Commission to agree on the revision process).

Basa mip1

BASA/MIP

(continued)

  • EASA guidance for US domestic repair stations has been published

  • FAA has drafted revisions to AC 145-8 and the appropriate Airworthiness Inspectors Handbook chapters

  • FAA has drafted a revision to AC 145-7A based on tentatively agreed upon new Special Conditions;

  • FAA is in the process of revising the Airworthiness Inspectors Handbook chapters to address the new Special Conditions;

“The airport runway is the

Most important mainstream

-Norm Crabtree


Basa mip2

BASA/MIP

(continued)

  • FAA is developing a revised training program for FAA inspectors involved with the MIP process.

  • FAA will develop guidance and training material, if necessary, for revisions to the current MIPs and/or agreement between the European Commission and the U.S.

“The airport runway is the

Most important mainstream

In any town.”

-Norm Crabtree


Revised basa mip

Revised BASA/MIP

  • FAA and EASA have been working together since 2003 to make preparations for an eventual MIP agreement with the European Commission (EC).

  • If the current MIPs are revised, they may be used as a “benchmark” for a new agreement with the EC.

“The airport runway is the

Most important mainstream

In any town.”

-Norm Crabtree


Revised agreement

Revised Agreement

  • The revised agreement will continue to include:

    • FAA will continue to do sampling inspections, however these inspections will be predicated on risk. (No maximum or minimum number)

    • FAA regards sampling inspection as part of the “checks and balances” to ensure industry and the NAA are complying with the agreement.

    • Sampling inspections act as a quality control system to ensure that safety in air transportation is maintained.

“The airport runway is the

Most important mainstream

In any town.”

-Norm Crabtree


Revised agreement1

Revised Agreement

(continued)

  • Currently the FAA and EASA certification, renewal, and amendment process will remain fundamentally the same.

  • Special Conditions will be revised to include EASA part 145 and FAR part 145 differences.
