Approach certification in a holistic, integrated aircraft-level way says; IFA

Recommendation 6 of the FAA-commissioned ‘Boeing 737 MAX Flight Control System Joint Authorities Technical Review (JATR)’, released 11th October, was for a more ‘holistic, integrated aircraft-level approach’ to aircraft certification.  Click to view the full report.

The IFA is pleased it so clearly affirms the keynote address, prophetically titled, ‘An Appeal for Holistic Regulatory Leadership’, which the IFA’s VP for Australasia, Steve Swift, delivered to the biennial conference of the International Committee for Fatigue and Structural Integrity (ICAF), in Krakow, Poland, in June. Although our VP’s interest was aircraft structure, the principles apply equally to systems. You can download the presentation from our VP’s company website.

The IFA is pleased the report’s recommendation affirms our holistic, integrated approach to airworthiness generally. We value the diversity of our members as we collectively form opinions and recommendations on airworthiness issues.

If you would like to comment on the FAA’s report, or any other aspect of the investigation, please contact our Secretary at [email protected].
