From FAA Advisory Circular No: 20-115C, Dated 7/19/2013 "Many FAA TSOs do not specify DO-178C for software assurance. For TSOs that specify a version prior to DO-178C, or do not specify any version of DO-178, we recommend that you use DO-178C."

At SigmaDO our trainers have a combined total of 60 years in the Avionics Software Industry as Software Engineers. We have the hands-on knowledge to take your project through FAA certification, and will impart that knowledge to you during our classes. The DO-178C textbook that we will train from, and that you will receive included with our class, is written by a Software Engineer, DER, and past FAA Technical Advisor.
