Aviation development is an increasingly complex field. The role of the non-profit and independent CERTegic consortium is to provide a single-point reference to technical information and tools to better navigate these complexities. Aviation systems also typically require certification, compliance or qualification. These pages summarize the differences and provide links to best-in-class resources to further understanding. Use this page’s menu to access information on Aviation Development Tools, Verification Tools, and Aviation Acronyms.
Aviation development applies to ground-based, airborne, and background systems. But development is just part of the picture: strategic “Certification” is an additional integral realm. For best-in-class research, reference materials, tools, and processes, peruse these CERTegic pages.
Aviation development consists of an Aviation Ecosystem, portrayed by one key aviation certification company in the following diagram. Note the various guidelines which apply to different aspects of aircraft, systems, and processes. Note the interplay between ARP4761A, ARP4754A, DO-178C, DO-254, and the related Guidelines.
