Director of Airworthiness Division

The Airworthiness Unit was first established in 1972, under the Flight Operations Division to regulate aircraft maintenance activities. The Civil Aviation Authority, United Kingdom (CAAUK) was contracted to manage the Unit. CAAUK airworthiness surveyors were positioned in Malaysia and the British Airworthiness Standards were adopted. Expansion of job functions and responsibilities resulted in this Unit being upgraded to a Division in 1992. The CAAUK surveyors were gradually replaced and since 1999 the Airworthiness Division is fully manned by qualified and trained Malaysians. The CAAUK contract was changed to a consultancy service. The Airworthiness Division had subsequently evolved to become a Sector in 2007 with further expansion of job functions and responsibilities.
