DND/CAF Airworthiness Program overview

The DND/CAF Airworthiness Program (NDID number A-GA-005-000/AG-001) is the policy document that regulates the safety of Canada’s military fleet. The program achieves this objective by influencing areas related to aeronautical products acquired by the Canadian government and their operation.

  • the requirements of an effective DND/CAF Airworthiness Program

  • the relationships between these authorities
  • the key advisors to the program – the Aerospace Medical Authority (AMA) and Flight Test Authority (FTA)
