Continued Airworthiness Support

In a manner similar to Airworthiness Directives and Service Bulletins that are issued for aircraft certificated in other categories, Flight Design issues 3 types of Safety Directives (Service Notices, Service Bulletin or Safety Alert). These are notifications of corrective actions determined by Flight Design in response to a reported safety of flight or service difficulty issue.

The content and format is determined by applicable Federal Aviation Regulations as well as ASTM standards for “Notice of Corrective Action” and “Operational Risk Assessment Procedure”.
