The National Airworthiness Council (NAC) Keystone Panel Objective:
2022 Theme: "Critical Airworthiness Competencies"
As the performance, capabilities, and readiness of aircraft continue to expand due to the increasing utilization of digital technologies and advanced manufacturing processes, so does the need for professionals who possess the unique skills, competencies, and talents necessary to provide airworthiness qualification and sustainment related support for these aircraft. Even for many highly experienced airworthiness professionals, the challenge of certifying aircraft with such novel, complex systems can be daunting. In the AA&S 2022 National Airworthiness Council Keystone Panel, representatives from the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, FAA, Coast Guard, and NASA will discuss current and future competency gaps, the challenges of finding professionals who have the requisite education, training, and skills, and the means by which these agencies plan to acquire the human capital and talent needed to assure airworthiness and sustainment both now and in the future.
