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 officers 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 Divisionin 1992. The CAAUK officers were gradually replaced and since 1999 the Airworthiness Division is fully manned by Malaysians. The UKCAA 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.

The Airworthiness Division carries the regulatory function in respect of airworthiness through the establishment of standards, recommended practices and guidelines, and their enforcement as required by the Civil Aviation Act [CAA] 1969

The primary role of this Division is to enhance and promote aviation safety through effective and up-to-date airworthiness regulation and by encouraging industry to deliver high standards of airworthiness. Airworthiness activities are regulated through various processes, taking into consideration all aspects of the airworthiness which have an impact on aviation safety. These processes include registration of civil aircraft, certification of aircraft design and built standards, licensing of aircraft maintenance engineers, approval of relevant organizations, development of standards and safety investigation.
