In aviation, the aircraft themselves have always played an important role. In flying, safety depends to a large extent on the reliability of the material used. The aircraft section covers on the one hand the certification of new aircraft and components, and on the other, aircraft maintenance.
The technical term is airworthiness, meaning the state in which an aircraft can safely be operated in compliance with the applicable technical regulations.
