Airworthiness of aircraft a key element in the safety of civil aviation
Airworthiness is responsible to ensure that Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) contained in the Annexes 2, 6, 7, 8 and 16 are cooperated in the Namibian regulatory framework. The department’s main responsibility is therefore to make sure that the obligation of carrying out the airworthiness function within Namibia is discharged with the highest level of effective implementation. The airworthiness safety oversight function involves amongst others the issuance of aircraft certificate of registration and certificates of airworthiness following a process of review against the applicable regulatory requirements.
It accepts new aircraft in Namibia upon import and approve modifications to aircraft when so requested by aircraft owners.
Aircraft Maintenance Organisations (AMOs) and Design Organisations (DOA) are certified and overseen by the division for compliance to regulatory requirements and safe maintenance practices.
