From quality to safety to performance, this year’s regulatory update will be packed with information that affects your company. The FAA is in transition, and therefore, how you operate your business is changing. Risk-based decision-making, change management, and taking corrective action are all part of the “new normal.” This update will focus on the new normal of avionics from regulatory changes and equipment mandates to important legal interpretations, and most importantly, industry’s relationship with the regulator.
From Fact to Fiction
Speaking of change, “From Fact to Fiction” will address the seven generations of new avionics products that have emerged in the past four years as a result of the FAA’s activities on the Part 23 rewrite. All of these products come with limitations. These products are different, and understanding the facts surrounding NORSEE, PMA and the Part 23 rewrite is critical in order to properly answer questions from your customers.
