Aircraft Evaluation Division

The Aircraft Evaluation Division (AED) assists and coordinates with aircraft manufacturers, operators and other Flight Standards Offices with product-specific Continued Operational Safety (COS) issues. We are available 24/7 to support COS.

Our goal is to ensure Aircraft Certification Service (AIR) and Flight Standards Service (AFX) are mutually-informed of product-specific continued operational safety issues and information.
