The term ‘aviation’ is most used to describe mechanical air transportation, which is carried out using an aircraft. The two main types of aircraft are aeroplanes and helicopters, but most modern definitions of the word ‘aviation’ extend beyond this to include the use of unmanned aircraft, such as drones.
The Difference Between the Aviation Industry and the Airline Industry;
The terms ‘aviation industry’ and ‘airline industry’ are sometimes thought of as being interchangeable, but they do describe different things.
An airline is a business offering air transportation services for people or cargo, with the airline industry being the collective term used to describe these companies.
The aviation industry includes aircraft manufacturers, researchers, air safety specialists, businesses involved with military aviation and, increasingly, companies that design, produce and/or make use of drones.
Civil & Military Aviation
Within the aviation sector, there are two main categories of flight: civil and military. In simple terms, civil aviation refers to all aviation that is not connected to the military. Crucially, this includes both private and commercial air travel, regardless of whether flights are carrying passengers, cargo or a combination of the two.
Military aviation refers to the use of aircraft within military settings. Typically, this kind of air transportation is designed to enable aerial warfare or perform surveillance operations. Most of the military aviation is related to air forces, however, the concepts of army aviation, navy aviation and coast guard aviation do also exist.
While the categories of civil aviation and military aviation are distinct from one another in most ways, there is a degree of cross-over too. For instance, some airports around the world help to facilitate both civil and military aviation, while certain businesses within the aviation industry cater for both civil and military aviation clients.
The task of a certified “Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation” (CAMO) is fundamentally to keep a client’s aircraft airworthy. This includes the management of all inspections and paperwork that meet the EASA regulations. As an aircraft owner or operator, the advantages of using CAMO programs are endless.
The term Repair Station refers to a maintenance facility that has a certificate issued by the FAA under title 14 of the code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 145 and is engaged in maintenance, inspection, and alteration of aircraft and aircraft products.
Part M Continuing Airworthiness means all the processes ensuring that at any time in its operating life, the aircraft complies with airworthiness requirements in force and is in a condition for safe operation.
