objectives
Objectives

assumptions
Assumptions
  • 300 people necessary to run a single certification system in Europe
    • 230 Experts (PCM/Specialists)
    • 70 Manager, Assistants, Secretaries

efficiency considerations
Efficiency Considerations
  • Cost of previous JAA/NAA system difficult to estimate
    • More than 700 certification experts are known
    • Workload & functioning partially unknown
    • Government subsidies to NAAs
    • Cross subsidies between branches, activities, etc.
  • Efficiency of the EASA certification system
    • Future: 230 certification experts
    • Total costs transparent
