Aircraft Certification Service (AIR)

Directorate and Field Offices

Effective July 23, 2017: AIR has realigned into a functionally based structure, and this page will no longer be updated. Please visit the AIR Transformation page to see how this reorganization enables AIR's comprehensive approach to increasing efficiency and effectiveness.

The directorates develop and implement national regulatory requirements, policy and procedures for continued operational safety and type, production, and airworthiness certifications for their designated products. Each directorate also has responsibility for overseeing certification activities (field office operations, certification programs, and projects) within its geographic area.
