AIRCRAFT PROPULSION SYSTEMS
This was one of my first project that I did for the Agency. The intended audience is EASA staff and people working in National Aviation Authorities who have to inspect paperwork relating to engines and propellers, but who may not have any experience of them. This often happens as inspectors may have an auditing background, rather than an engineering one.
The project is an example of my work at EASA – Taking a complex subject and breaking it down until I could create a course that a layman could understand.
In spite of the simple language and step-by-step approach, users of the course will finish with not only an understanding of the different engine configurations, how they work, and why they are appropriate, but also safety critical concepts such as Critical Components and Design life.
CABIN SAFETY DESIGN
This was designed for EASA staff who are approving cabin designs. The course started with an introduction, and continued with introducing the paragraphs from the regulations that apply in each situation. This is designed to be a classroom-delivered course.
High quality images and embedded film attempt to bring the cabins to life. Interactions with active hotspots let the user search for areas where there might be regulatory concerns.
The course includes six case studies, where groups of students can look at the procedures that EASA has taken in these cases and report back to the group with their comments on the process.
EWIS: ELECTRICAL WIRING INTERCONNECTION SYSTEMS
EWIS is a short course that is part of EASA’s public offering. It describes how it was decided that separate regulations regarding wiring were needed, and what those regulations are.
It presents material from EU regulation, bringing it to life with illustrations, quizzes and animation.
