Osprey has been supporting Ascent Flight Training Ltd through the provision of Airworthiness assurance support with a number of its programmes. This included providing airworthiness advice and guidance for the procurement and in-service operation of the UK Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS) fleet of aircraft, interfacing between the Type Airworthiness Authority, the MFTS Project Team and the Aircraft Service Providers.
– For Future Fixed Wing, Future Rotary Wing and Future Rear Crew Training this required the development and evaluation of bid documents, from writing Request for Proposal (RFP) and Statement of Requirement (SOR) documents through to the evaluation of bidders responses using AWARD software, the development of Airworthiness Strategies, Statement of Operating Intent (SOI) and MAA MRP compliance, raising Authority clarification questions, answering bidder clarification questions and the production of Initial Gate and Main Gate documents.
– For the Avenger Mk1 (Beech 350ER) this required knowledge and understanding of Certification Requirements to CS23 / FAR 23 and MAA RA1500, EASA STC processes, EASA Part M and 145, MAA MAOS and DAOS for a range of modifications and upgrades and supporting an OLM exercise to validate the Statement of Operating Intent and Usage (SOIU) in addition to routine analysis and advice on occurrences and incidents.
We are also providing ad hoc support as required.
