Maintenance Airworthiness Designees

Designated Airworthiness Representatives (DAR-T)

A Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR) is an individual appointed in accordance with 14 CFR §183.33 who may perform examination, inspection, and testing services necessary to the issuance of certificates. There are two types of DARs, manufacturing (DAR-F) and maintenance (DAR-T). This page contains information about DAR-Ts only. Information about DAR-Fs can be found on the Manufacturing and Airworthiness page.

Maintenance DARs must hold:

  • A mechanic's certificate with an airframe and power plant rating under 14 CFR part 65, Certification: Airmen Other Than Flight Crewmembers, and meet the specialized experience requirements listed in FAA Order 8000.95, Volume 5, Chapter 2 for DAR-Ts.
