What they say...

“The course sought to provide an insight into the regulatory framework of aircraft certification and maintenance, as well as the organisations involved in this process and their responsibilities. The lessons highlighted the dynamism of this area of aviation, which is necessary in order to guarantee safety in such a rapidly evolving industry, and both the academic and professional lecturers provided valuable insight from their experiences and various practical scenarios which were extremely instructive.
Airworthiness is also one of the key areas of the Department of Aircraft and Spacecraft in the UPM. It is in this department in which I am currently starting my doctoral studies with Professor Cristina Cuerno-Rejado and seeking to develop a career in aeronautical research.”

IFA 2018 Scholarship winner

This seminar fueled my aviation subject knowledge and gave me a fruitful learning experience. The concepts taught in this course, cleared the air of doubt on what airworthiness is actually all about and how the airworthiness system was structured.
