Technical Airworthiness Authority (TAA) Advisories

The Technical Airworthiness Authority (TAA) publishes advisories to provide clarification and guidance to accredited organizations.

A TAA Advisory helps clarify the rules and standards published in the Technical Airworthiness Manual (TAM) and in the Airworthiness Design Standards Manual (ADSM). An advisory can provide clarification on non-DND/CAF airworthiness circulars when additional guidance regarding an acceptable means of compliance is necessary to consider our unique military airworthiness requirement.

For more information about a specific TAA Advisory, please contact the Office of Primary Interest (OPI) of that advisory. The following is a list of advisories released to date by the TAA.
