The 2022 Design Delegation Holders Seminar on 03 November 2022 at Grand Hall, Parliament, Wellington 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.
