This half-day web-based training session is presented by instructors who have extensive industry experience working with US Military Certification Programs including MIL-HDBK-516. The training is unique in the industry because it provides a practical understanding from a manufacturer’s point of view of how to implement a US Military Airworthiness Program. Training includes examples of the US Military process conducted in accordance with MIL-STD-882 DoD System Safety and utilizing MIL-HDBK-516 DoD Airworthiness Certification Criteria.
