National Transportation Safety Board is presenting an opportunity for aircraft mechanics
to renew their Inspection Authorization (IA) at an NTSB Safety Seminar. The
seminar will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the NTSB’s Training Center
in Ashburn, Virginia. The Seminar will include eight hours of material designed
to increase the participant’s knowledge in all facets of the inspection
process, as well as lessons learned from the outcome of NTSB investigations.
will include NTSB investigators and staff, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
inspectors, and other industry experts. Attendees will have the opportunity to not
only renew their IA certificate, but also be exposed to presentation material
that will encourage attendees to analyze and evaluate the information in an
effort to become more informed mechanics and inspectors. Accident case studies
involving maintenance issues will be presented by active NTSB investigators and
staff, as an opportunity to learn from these often tragic events. Presentations
will also include current technology and best practices and procedures for
mechanics and inspectors.
will also have the rare opportunity to receive a tutorial briefing on the TWA
800 accident investigation, and view the reconstruction. During this tutorial,
attendees will learn how the NTSB conducts accident investigations and the
resultant safety recommendation process. This tutorial is an optional part of
the seminar, held at the end of the day, and will not count towards the IA renewal.
NTSB has partnered with the FAA for this useful and educational seminar. FAA
inspectors and staff will be available to process IA paperwork.
cost for the seminar will be $50 and will include lunch.
Because space is limited, registration will close when
the seminar is full. Therefore, early registration is recommended. We will not
be able to accept any registrations on the day of the event.
The doors will open at 7:30 a.m., and the seminar will
run from 8:00a.m.-5:00p.m. (with an optional TWA 800 briefing from 5:00p.m.-6:00p.m.). Attendees must have a government-issued photo
ID, such as a driver’s license, to enter the building.
