FAA Designee program to be overhauled

The FAA proposes replacing the current designee program with a new one that expands the functions that designees may perform, permits non-FAA-certified individuals and organizations to become designees and does away with existing designee categories. Under the far-reaching changes proposed late last month, current designated airworthiness representatives would have three years from the effective date of the new rules to transition their credentials to qualify under the new designation–organization delegation authorization (ODA). Comments are due May 24. For more information, contact the FAA’s Ralph Meyer at (405) 954-7072.
