The purpose of this paper is to create up-to-date aviation legislations study material focused on the continuing airworthiness of aircraft and aeronautical products, parts and appliances, and on the approval of organisations and personnel involved in these tasks for future students of aircraft maintenance technology at the Air Transport Department, FPEDAS of the University of Žilina. As a relatively new studying programme, it has a lack of study materials in the field of aviation legislation, mainly in the field of aviation maintenance, whether in terms of technical requirements of aircrafts airworthiness or their certification. The first chapter of the paper is focused on a brief acquaintance with the history of aircraft maintenance and procedures applied in aircraft maintenance. We point to the modern history of aircraft maintenance, including EU legislation. In the second chapter, the work focuses on the international legal regulation of this issue as well as on the position of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the European Civil Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and their activities in this area. In the following chapters, the paper deals with the current regulations of the EU Commission and Parts important not only for aircraft maintenance technicians, but also for training organizations in the field of aviation maintenance. In the end the paper deals with legislation necessary for the certification of an aircraft and requirements that are applied in the operation procedures of any civil aircraft for the purposes of commercial air transport.
