The 2021 Design Delegation Holders Seminar on 27 May 2021 at Novotel in Hamilton was attended by over 65 participants from industry, RNZAF and CAA staff members.

The seminar gives Design Delegation Holders, Part 146 design organisations, and engineering staff, a chance to discuss technical and professional topics with the CAA and other industry members. Previously held every two years, the seminar has been so successful it has moved to an annual schedule.

This year’s seminar included a range of presentations from CAA including the closed-door forum between the CAA and Design Delegation Holders which always provides useful feedback.

In addition to the CAA presentations, talks were given by industry and RNZAF participants David Moody of Airwork, SQNLDR Mark Stevens of the RNZAF and Salvatore Carta MRAeS.
