1.17.3  Federal Aviation Administration

As the state of manufacture, the FAA was responsible for the original design approval of the MD-11 aircraft. The FAA accomplished this through a partnership process with the aircraft manufacturer, which resulted in the issuance of the type certificate number A22WE. After an aircraft is in service, the regulator provides management of the type certificate in a manner consistent with FAA policy and FAR requirements. The responsible Aircraft Certification Office maintains oversight by directly liaising with the type certificate holder on matters of continuing airworthiness.
