Aircraft Certification Service (AIR)

Design, Manufacturing, and Airworthiness Division

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 Design, Manufacturing, and Airworthiness Division promotes aviation safety by issuing federal aviation regulations, national directives, policy, procedures, and advisory material pertaining to continued operational safety, type certification, design approvals, production approvals, airworthiness certification, and authorization and oversight of certain Designated Representatives of the Administrator.
