2017 Design Delegation Holders Seminar Presentations



The 2017 Design Delegation Holders Seminar was held at the Hamilton Airport Conference Centre over 09-10 May and was attended by 75 participants from industry, CAA, CASA, FAA and the RNZAF.

The bi-annual seminar is aimed at providing a forum for DDH, Part 146 Design Organisations and their engineering staff to discuss technical and professional topics with CAA, and network with other members of the industry. The seminar includes a broad range of presentations from the CAA and industry on design, certification and commercial related topics.

A dinner was held on the first evening of the seminar which was warmly received by the attendees. In addition to providing a fantastic networking opportunity, an informative and entertaining presentation was given by one of CAA’s longer standing Design Delegation Holders (Mr Richard Leaper, AIM Altitude) on the topic of "Managing the Design/Production Interface".
