Software Session:
Periodically the Aircraft Certification Service (AIR) will hold a conference for designees authorized to make findings of compliance related to Software. In years that conference is held, those designees should attend that conference. Information related to future Software Conferences will be posted on the Aircraft Certification Software website. In years where a Software specific conference is not held, designees should complete the annual recurrent training corresponding to their individual authorization (Electrical Systems, Propulsion, etc.).
