SV6002E - In-service Occurrence Management


General objective:

The module provides a comprehensive view of avionics systems airworthiness issues as a part of the qualification and certification process of aircraft.
This module presents the evolution of avionic systems architectures over the past thirty years, their main characteristics together with the airworthiness requirements, and focuses on the automatic flight control systems.
After completing this course, the student will be able to
+ Describe the architecture and operations, and explain the airworthiness requirements of the following avionic systems:
- Electrical flight control system
- Flight management system
- Auto-flight system
- CNS systems
- Inertial reference system
+ Describe FMGS A320 operations and ACAS operations
+ Explain particular AFCS topics

Detailed objectives:

Upon completion of this course, the student shall be able to:
- Quote the EASA regulatory requirements for continued airworthiness
- Quote and describe the continued airworthiness process (manufacturer and Authorities)
- Define what an unasafe condition is, and identify it on selected examples of in-service events
- Quote the different corrective actions for an Unsafe Condition in order to restore the aircarft or fleet safety level, and explain in particular the AD (Airworthiness Directive) process
- Apply these principles on a study case ("leading theme" project, in semi-autonomy).
