Technical Airworthiness Authority (TAA) Advisories

A TAA Advisory helps clarify the rules and standards published in the Technical Airworthiness Manual (TAM) and in the Airworthiness Design Standards Manual (ADSM). An advisory can provide clarification on non-DND/CAF airworthiness circulars when additional guidance regarding an acceptable means of compliance is necessary to consider our unique military airworthiness requirement.
