The Airworthiness Code V1


Following on from the success of its popular Skyway Code, the UK Civil Aviation Authority has now produced the 'Airworthiness Code for Maintenance', designed to provide practical guidance on the key airworthiness topics for owners and operators of General Aviation (GA) aircraft. 

Ever wondered what maintenance you're allowed to do as an aircraft owner/operator; what to look out for when purchasing a used aircraft; or how to go about choosing a maintenance organisation? Now contained in one handy guide, the CAA has addressed the most commonly asked questions about maintenance of GA aircraft, written in plain English. Softback, 81-pages.
