April 10-12 CAAC-ACP IPA Workshop

Implementation Procedures for Airworthiness (IPA) Workshop in Zhuhai


On April 10-12, CAAC and ACP held an Implementation Procedures for Airworthiness Workshop.  Featured CAAC speakers included Director General Xu Chaoqun; and  Deputy Director Generals Yang Zhemei, and Chen Wei.  We also were pleased to be joined by over 100 representatives from Chinese industry, CAAC regional administrations, educational organizations, FAA, USTDA and ACP member companies.  The purpose of the workshop was to help Chinese and US industry better understand the benefits of the IPA, and to share best practice.  The October 2017 signing of the IPA was an milestone in the growing maturity of US-China aviation relationship.

Overall the participants found the subject matter extremely useful as evidenced by a  robust two-day industry/regulator dialogue.
