  • 1. AGENDA o Introduction o Managing Military Aircraft o Airworthiness Compliance o Impact on Air Forces o Conclusion o QuestionsDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 2
  • 2. INTRODUCTION Marc van Lokven 1988 – 2008 Royal Netherlands Air Force (mainly F-16) 2008 – 2010 VisionWaves A&D – Strategic Management IT systems 2010 – today Daedalus Aviation Group Daedalus Aviation Group Daedalus Mission Statement “Deliver ultimate support for (military) aviation, covering the full scope from logistics to operations, in order to ensure optimal (weapon) system availability and operational readiness”Daedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 3
  • 3. MANAGING MILITARY AIRCRAFT Two most important areas of attention: COMMUNICATION SKILLS • Most systems and documentation are in English • International standards • Information Management • Organizational Structure REGULATION & COMPLIANCE (incl. environmental) • Consistency, contingency and accuracy • Clearly documented, auditable, processes Without REGULATION, COMMUNICATION is senseless Without COMMUNICATION, REGULATION is uselessDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 4
  • 4. AIRWORTHINESS COMPLIANCE DEFINITION “The ability of an aircraft or other airborne equipment or system to operate without significant hazard to aircrew, ground crew, passengers or to the general public over which such airborne systems are flown” FIVE BASIC ELEMENTS 1. A certified aircraft, designed and manufactured to international standards 2. A maintenance program by which the a/c can be serviced, checked and repaired 3. A continuous airworthiness program that supports the a/c in operation 4. Availability of an organization suitably approved to carry out pt 1, 2 & 3 5. Availability of licensed personnel able to certify and release to serviceDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 5
  • 5. AIRWORTHINESS COMPLIANCE MILITARY AIRWORTHINESS AGENCY IN RNLAF Trigger: Hercules accident 15 July 1996, Eindhoven Air Base Multiple errors line up resulting in 34 fatal casualties, only 7 survivors REGULATION – COMMUNICATION not in place!Daedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 6
  • 6. AIRWORTHINESS COMPLIANCE MILITARY AIRWORTHINESS AGENCY IN RNLAF Result: - Proof of safety and responsibility becomes paramount - Call for Transparency – Public Opinion More complex weapon systems (like F-16) require paradigm change - Higher complexity REQUIRES more and better communication - Higher complexity REQUIRES tightly managed processes and regulation Complexity X Uncertainty = Fragility ! Requirement: Integral Quality ControlDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 7
  • 7. AIRWORTHINESS COMPLIANCE INTEGRAL QUALITY CONTROL – THE “PARTS” PART-21 Procedures and regulation for design and production of aircraft and components PART-66 Training and examination regulation for maintenance personnel PART-145 Regulation for maintenance organizations PART-147 Regulation for training and examination organizations PART-OPS (M) Regulation for continuous airworthiness Covering the whole “Life Cycle”: Design – Manufacture – Train – Maintain – OperateDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 8
  • 8. AIRWORTHINESS COMPLIANCE INTEGRAL QUALITY CONTROL – THE “PARTS” Aircraft may only operate when DESIGNED and MANUFACTURED by a PART-21 approved organization, having its MAINTENANCE carried out by a PART-145 approved organization, using PART-66 qualified STAFF that has been TRAINED by a PART-147 approved organization and when under CONTROL of a PART-OPS approved OPERATOR. PART-66 PART-21 PART-147 PART-145 PART-OPS (M) Design - Build Train Maintain OperateDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 9
  • 9. AIRWORTHINESS COMPLIANCE RELATION WITH ISO, AQAP, AS9100, etc. • Airworthiness Regulation requires a solid Quality Management (ISO 9000, AS 9100, AQAP 2120) System to be in place. • However, these are generic QA systems. • ISO, AQAP, AS 9100 require no expositions • Airworthiness Regulation has specific organizational requirementsDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 10
  • 10. IMPACT ON AIR FORCES ORGANIZATIONAL IMPACT Initial phase - Civil Aviation Regulation (FAA/JAR) as a baseline Create Transparency - Military Airworthiness Authority under MoD - Define PART-66 - Directives for other PARTs - “Guardian” role - Audit Teams - Audit Program Setup Auditable Organization Expositions - PART-21 MTC Holder Organization Exposition (MTCHOE) - PART-145 Maintenance Organization Exposition (MOE) - PART-147 Maintenance Training Organization Exposition (MTOE) - PART-OPS Military Aviation Requirements (MAR-OPS)Daedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 11
  • 11. IMPACT ON AIR FORCES ORGANIZATIONAL IMPACT AIRBASE summary • Accountable Manager – Base Commander • Postholder Maintenance – Maintenance Commander • Quality Manager • Compliance Verification Engineers (audit teams) • MOE compliant Maintenance Organization • PART-66 compliant Maintainers and Engineers (AML)Daedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 12
  • 12. IMPACT ON AIR FORCES (MAINTENANCE) ORGANIZATION ON AIRBASE Part-21 Base Commander Part-21 Postholder Postholder Chief of Staff Maintenance Operations Part-66 AML Manager MAA Flying Quality Part-145 Maintenance Logistics Squadrons Manager Squadron Squadron Line Part-145 Part-145 Maintenance Part-145 Base Maintenance Part-145 Component MaintenanceDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 13
  • 13. IMPACT ON AIR FORCES MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION REQUIREMENTS • MOE Approved by MAA • Approved adequate facilities: hangar, docks, racks, containers, environmental, office space • Controlled Supply Management (GSE, toolcrib, calibration and shelf-life management) • Controlled Documentation Management • Maintenance Administration System in place • Controlled Quality Deficience Reporting procedures (incident management) • Access Control – Authorized Personnel only • Maintenance Authorization Manual (MAM) – Approved by MAA • Maintenance Personnel requirements (AML – Release to Service)Daedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 14
  • 14. IMPACT ON AIR FORCES MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION REQUIREMENTS • Maintenance Personnel requirements (AML – Release to Service) • Category Definitions • Competent Employee. No Part-66 req. NDI, sheetmetal, painter, etc. – sign for “accomplished” • Qualified Staff, have Part-66 AML, but no Part-145 RTS – sign for “accomplished” • Certifying Staff, have Part-66 AML + Part-145 RTS – sign for “release to service” Component Maintenance Cat S • Indirect aircraft: NDI, sheetmetal, painter, weapons Cat A • Mechanic for specific tasks Line Maintenance Cat B1 • Mechanic for engine, system and avionics LRUs Base Maintenance Cat B2 • Mechanic for avionics and electrical systems Cat C • Maintenance Manager in Base MaintenanceDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 15
  • 15. IMPACT ON AIR FORCES MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION REQUIREMENTS • Maintenance Personnel requirements (AML – Release to Service) • From Training to AML with Release to Service authorization Part-66 Part-147 Part-145 Basic Type OJT “PVB” AML AML+RTS Training Training Training • Experience requirements e.g. B1/B2: 2 years experience B1/B2: 5 years experience • “Grandfather’s Rights”Daedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 16
  • 16. IMPACT ON AIR FORCES MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION REQUIREMENTS • AML Experience requirements versus Training and existing knowledge • Important: alignment with Personnel Management / contracts! Technician from civil A: 0.5 yr aviation industry B: 1 year AML Trained at Part-147 A: 1 year A, organization B: 2 years B1/B2 Technician in non- A: 2 years aircraft related job B: 3 years No relevant A: 3 year technical training B: 5 yearsDaedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 17
  • 17. CONCLUSION AIRWORTHINESS IN AIR FORCES • Increased complexity requires a well structured and integrally controlled organization • Changed public opinion in relation to flight safety also for military requires transparency • Paradigm change is necessary throughout the full process scope • Implementing “PARTs” has a large impact on Air Forces, particularly for Maintenance • Complexity X Uncertainty = Fragility! • (COMMUNICATION + REGULATION) X AUDIT = COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT • SAFETY: it should never be a choice…Daedalus Aviation Group – Marc van Lokven Airworthiness Compliance in Air Forces Slide 18
