Brief Description:

The motto of FAA’s Aircraft Certification Service (AIR) is: “Aviation Safety Begins with Safe Aircraft”. The Service is responsible for approving the Type and Production Certification of all aircraft that fly in US airspace.

In order to do its job effectively, the Service delegates some of its authority to Designated Manufacturing Inspection Representatives (DMIRs). These are private citizens who act for the FAA Administrator and oversee and approve certification of aircraft and components in manufacturing facilities.  Come and learn more in this FREE two-hour seminar!  WINGS and AMT credit available!

The Orlando FSDO-15 FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam), along with your local Treasure Coast FAASTeam, encourages all aviation safety minded individuals to come and attend our every third Thursday of the month safety seminars.  

COVID-19 Statement: Prior to attending a seminar, please check for compliance with applicable CDC, state, and local public health guidelines.  Please bring a mask and anticipate social distancing.
