What Does "Airworthy" Mean?
Qualifies for FAA Wings and AMT credit.

Mike Busch

 

Mechanics often joke that there is no such thing as an "airworthy" aircraft, because it's always possible to find something wrong if you look hard enough. If our aircraft had to be "perfectly airworthy" then we would never be able to fly them.
