Continuing airworthiness addresses the ongoing support of aircraft operations in Australia or by Australian registered aircraft. This includes having the right information or data available to the people performing the work. The continuing airworthiness of aircraft includes ensuring that the work performed on aircraft and their components meets defined standards and is performed by the appropriately licensed people and organisations.
This section includes information in Airworthiness Bulletins (AWB) that provide information for maintenance personnel and operators and Airworthiness Advisory Circulars (AACs) that provide additional advisory information.
In addition the Service Difficulty Reporting (SDR) system provides a means to collect information on the major defects in aircraft and equipment and the Generated Minimum Equipment List (GMEL) provides a means for operators to operate safely with unserviceable equipment.
