1 Military Airworthiness Harmonisation Workshop Olomouc, CZ Republic MAWA Forum Chairman Jan Plevka,Ph.D. Armaments Directorate

2 © European Defence Agency Workshop presentation outline Background information to Harmonised European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs) Current status of Military Airworthiness Authorities Forum activities within EDA Comparable evolution to JAA-EASA (first airworthiness followed by total aviation approach) Exploring internal and external cooperation Civil-military relationship in airworthiness area

3 © European Defence Agency Involvement of EDA in Airworthiness and Aviation Safety Number of international activities for coordination of military airworthiness started in 2004, EMAAG, NSA Airworthiness group, FINAS, OCCAR, JMAAN, ETAP... November 2008 an important milestone in EU military Airworthiness history EU Ministers of Defence approved the establishment of Military AirWorthiness Authorities (MAWA) Forum and endorsed the European Military Airworthiness Roadmap

4 © European Defence Agency European Military Certification and Airworthiness Roadmap EDA/MAWAs Seven objectives Common regulatory framework; Common certification processes; Common approach to organisational approvals; Common certification/design codes; Common approach to preservation of airworthiness; Arrangements for mutual recognition; Formation of a European Military Joint Airworthiness Authority.

5 © European Defence Agency Involvement of EDA in Airworthiness and Aviation Safety European Defence Agency (EDA) was entrusted to facilitate associated activities EDA was established under a Joint Action of the council of Ministers on 12 July, 2004, "to support the Member States and the Council in their effort to improve European defence capabilities in the field of crisis management and to sustain the European Security and Defence Policy as it stands now and develops in the future. What are the benefits for working together? Military aviation safety, Military-military & civil-military cooperation, Reducing time & cost for new aircraft Helping to improve competiveness of EDTIB

6 © European Defence Agency Involvement of EDA in Airworthiness and Aviation Safety The priorities are different as nations have different perspectives and needs. Thus the co-ordination between 26 pMS is very important to achieve consensus and to keep synergies. EDA being aware of the scare resources in military airworthiness is ready to enforce the development by using OB, ER, and manning to achieve the expected benefits. EDA with pMS is aiming to establish administrative and technical procedures which would require a single administrative action from the applicant (industry) valid under the national regulations and procedures of each Authority. Work together towards a European Military Joint Airworthiness Authority.

9 © European Defence Agency MAWA current structure MAWA TF1 Basic Framework Chairman Mr. John Allan The Basic Framework of MAWA is exploring the JAA Cyprus agreement with main goals, That the 26 nations commit themselves work together on the field of harmonisation of military airworthiness To define the whole set and scope of EMARs so that each Authority can adopt this structure and remove national regulatory differences with the aim that EMAR becomes a uniform code for all European countries and minimal further national regulatory differences will be applied. To establish procedures that will: allow the use of only one set of technical findings in the field of design, manufacture and maintenance for the benefit of all and in a manner acceptable to Military Authorities; include practical measures for making the technical findings only once including acceptance of technical findings made by industry, where industry conforms to agreed approval standards; cover the initial certification (of products, services, organisations or people) as well as the continuation of safety standards in service.

11 © European Defence Agency MAWA current structure MAWA TF3 EMAR Maintenance Col Dominique COLIN Based EASA Documents : PART M; PART 145; PART 147;PART 66 The taskforce is developing the following common EMARs on the field of continuing Airworthiness. Basically EMARs will cover the certification of maintenance organisations and personnel including educational requirements and licensing: EMAR Part 145 (Maintenance) EMAR Part M (Continuing AW) EMAR Part 147 (Tech training) EMAR Part 66 (a/c maintenance licences)

12 © European Defence Agency MAWA current structure LtCol Alessio GRASSO Based on existing national documents (Mil Hdbk. 516B, DEF std…) The taskforce is focusing on the development of military certification codes/standards and safety requirements for future military aircraft programmes. Furthermore platform unique criteria (special conditions) need to be added to fully address the safety aspects of unique military configurations. This document establishes the airworthiness certification criteria to be used in the determination of airworthiness of all manned and unmanned, fixed and rotary wing air vehicle systems. This document should cross reference relevant military and civil requirements. These documents should be used to define the technical specification and should be the result of harmonization efforts across the MAWA pMS. MAWA TF4 Certification codes

14 © European Defence Agency Conclusive remarks EDA/MAWA is committed to developing the regulatory framework (EMARS) for military/state aircraft including UAS. EMARS shall be ready for future European aircraft programmes, but all existing military aircraft may benefit from continuing airworthiness also. EDA/MAWA will develop links to actively contribute to this goals in cooperation with other stakeholders and regulatory bodies. We expect to discuss this goals with all our stakeholders (industry, regulatory organisations, national authorities) in specific panel sessions and to give us your feedback for the MAWA Forum as guidance for the way forward. How to continue with UAS airworthiness harmonisation?
