DO-178C Practical Training

RTCA DO-178C <Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification> is the worldwide accepted standard for civil aviation software development and certification. Compliance with the objectives of DO-178C is the primary means for meeting airworthiness requirements and obtaining approval of airborne software in TC/STC/TSO, etc.

Even after learning the DO-178C, many people said they still lack of experience and still find it difficult to produce DO-178C compliant airborne software in real applications.  This three-day practical training will provide attendees with an in-depth dry run of producing DO-178C compliant With the development of Chinese civil aviation industry, more and more people realized the importance of airborne software.  During the certification process of previous ARJ21 aircraft, airborne software had captured many concerns.  Nowadays the certification process of C919 aircraft has also reached its peak after its maiden flight.  In this context, learning how to correctly understand and strictly meet the objectives DO-178C becomes very essential for the people who is developing or is going to develop airborne software. 

However, even after attended some DO-178C training courses, many people still lack of experience and still find it difficult to produce DO-178C compliant airborne software in real applications.  This three-day practical training will help attendees to gain such experience with an in-depth dry run of producing DO-178C compliant airborne software.
