An aircraft’s Certificate of Airworthiness and an 8130-3 Airworthiness Certificate are different things, but both have one thing in common … Airworthiness.

With respect to Certificates of Airworthiness: what type of Certificates of Airworthiness are there? What is the purpose of each? When are they used? And when it comes to 8130-3s: there is a tremendous amount of information and specialized areas of training for FAA Form 8130-3 Airworthiness Tags (including FAA Order 8130.21H); but, the aviation community continues to misunderstand and misclassify these very important documents.

It’s imperative that the aviation maintenance professional has a good understanding of what both of these type of documents are used for and why.


The objective of this course is to better understand Certificates of Airworthiness and 8130 Airworthiness Certificates as they apply to both aircraft and parts. What their purpose is, how they fit into the overall operation of an aircraft, and where they should be kept and/or displayed.

This course takes a look at both types of documents to gain a better understanding of why each one is important to the aircraft, its operation, and the technicians involved.


This course will benefit A&P Technicians and Students, Repair Station Inspectors, Repairmen, and anyone needing a better understanding of Certificates of Airworthiness and 8130 Airworthiness Certificates.
