EDA Military Airworthiness Conference 2019

The Military Airworthiness Authorities (MAWA) Forum oversees the development and maintenance of the European Military Airworthiness Requirements and promotes ways of achieving the harmonisation of military airworthiness oversight across Europe. In this context the annual EDA Military Airworthiness Conference brings together key stakeholders from national authorities, industry, European agencies and international organisations to exchange views, identify best practices and debate lessons learned in their activities to date.

We are very privileged to have been invited by the Flight Safety Department of the Lithuanian Armed Forces - Lietuvos Kariuomené - to hold the EDA Military Airworthiness Conference 2019 in Vilnius on 9 and 10 October.

This year’s conference will focus on further cooperation in the area of oversight based on a new Airworthiness Roadmap that was approved last year as the next step in the harmonisation of airworthiness approaches in Europe. The conference will reflect on the current achievements and the impact of EMAR implementation on both the regulated community and military airworthiness authorities to date. It will also address the challenges of transitioning towards EMAR-based regulations in the coming years. Other highlights will be the evolution of the cooperation framework between national military airworthiness authorities, as well as relevant global developments. In the programme, ample time will be included for discussion and interaction with the audience.

As in previous years, there will be opportunities for networking during breaks and during an informal evening event.

Delegates who wish to attend the EDA Military Airworthiness Conference 2019 should apply through the MAC2019 registration web page. Since the Conference is an INVITE ONLY event, delegates should be aware that their registration have to be confirmed by EDA to gain access to the Conference.

Details as regards the conference venue, programme and other planning details will be separately sent with the confirmation of the registration.

We look forward to seeing you at the Military Airworthiness Conference 2019!
