Small Airplane Directorate Engine and Propeller Directorate Transport Airplane Directorate Rotorcraft Directorate Planning and Program Management Division Acting Design, Manufacturing and Airworthiness Division International Office Chris Carter Aviation Fuels Office Peter White Dorenda Baker Director Frank Paskiewicz Deputy Director Brussels, Belgium Shanghai, China Personnel Changes: AIR has also seen some key personnel changes: I am excited to announce that we have established the AIR Fuels Program Office and named Peter White as the new Manager. We are also excited to welcome Jeff Duven to his new position as the Manager of the Transport Airplane Directorate. Last month, Kim Smith, our current Manager of the Rotorcraft Directorate, was assigned the Manager of the Engine and Propeller Directorate. Although she now wears both hats, she will remain domiciled in the Rotorcraft Directorate, Ft. Worth, Texas. Last but not least, we continue to work on streamlining our organization in order to more effectively –and efficiently—address the needs of our stakeholders and bilateral partners within the international community. As part of this long-term effort, we’ve recently merged the Aircraft Engineering Division with the Production and Airworthiness Division into one new entity: the Design, Manufacturing and Airworthiness Division. James (JD) Seipel will be the acting manager. Earl Lawrence Jeff Duven Jennifer Arquilla Kim Smith Kim Smith James Seipel May 1, 2014 TPC Meeting

10 Global Manufacturing More overseas suppliers for our Production Certificates (PCs)– Requiring supplier oversight Evolving business models – Revenue Sharing (Risk Sharing) Major integrators Super suppliers May 1, 2014 TPC Meeting

11 Global Manufacturing PC Extensions overseas/Other production approvals moving to US – Requiring Certificate Management (CM) Split Type Certificates (TCs)/PCs US State of Design (SoD)/Non-US State of Manufacture (SoM) Non-US SoD-US SoM May 1, 2014 TPC Meeting

12 Global Manufacturing Challenges
Multi-tier supply chains with technology spread over multiple States Need to perform oversight at site of manufacture Resource demand for extensive supplier oversight models State of Design Responsibilities Split TC/PC – FAA still responsible for Mandatory Continued Airworthiness Information (MCAI) FAA seal of approval on TCs Import/Export Split TC/PC not covered on IPAs Multi-State business models not enabled by IPA May 1, 2014 TPC Meeting

13 FAA International Strategy Development
Desired Result: The FAA is recognized and respected as the global leader in aviation. Guiding Principles: In conducting international activities, the FAA will: Exercise leadership , Utilize a risk-based strategy and Support U.S. interests. ZSU Facilitation

14 AIR 2018: Globalization What we are doing?
Revising language in our bilateral agreements to address SoD and SoM Adding structure to our Special Arrangement/Management Plan process Strengthening our Bilateral Relationship Management (BRM) process Risk based evaluation of our bilateral partners Technical assistance May 1, 2014 TPC Meeting

15 Bilateral Agreements Special Arrangement to:
Perform supplier surveillance on behalf of FAA or FAA perform supplier surveillance on behalf of CAA FAA PC extension with CAA overseeing CM on our behalf State of Design / State of Manufacturer Split (TC/PC) Special Projects Engineering compliance or test witnessing, etc. As discussed previously, AIR is facing unprecedented interest in untraditional relationship models. The interest is exceeding our system’s structure to accommodate these requests. And the volume of requests and our acquiescence to such requests is posing a new risk. An example of this is our intended special arrangement with Mexico to perform supplier surveillance on our behalf. Since initiating this endeavor more interest to broaden their scope of activity has come forward. And interest to extend the same arrangement to other CAAs has come forward. It is imperative we find a system solution to determining eligibility and competence in exercising these types of agreements. The demand for special arrangements and management plans is exceeding our current systems ability to maintain configuration control of these agreements and how they are managed. this precedence setting activity to become formalized.
