Aircraft inspections Aircraft inspections Presentation Transcript

  • III-1 Aircraft Inspections Richard D. Mileham Airworthiness Safety Program Manager Great Lakes Region
  • Maintenance Technician and Inspection Authorization Inspection Task • Review of the Inspection tasks will assist you in performing the task of a maintenance technician and Inspection Authorization to the requirements of the Federal Aviation Regulations • Recurrent training is the key to your success and the key to maintaining a safe aircraft. • Lets take a look at those tasks that we are required to do as a maintenance technician.
  • INSPECTIONS
  • III-4 Inspections are the most important task that we perform. It is also important that we build a working relationship with the owner and operator aircraft so we can complete the requirements of the inspection to determine that all the airworthiness requirements are met. It is just as important that the owner/operator understand their responsibility in maintaining the aircraft . Take the opportunity to explain the requirements of the regulations and assist the owner/operator in making sure that all the requirements of the regulation are met.
  • III-5 CUSTOMER RELATIONS... GET IT STRAIGHT
  • III-6 Explain to the customer the requirement of the inspection and what it is going to take to accomplish the entire inspection. Remember maintenance includes inspection and items found during the inspection must have a corrective action.
  • III-7 Many times there is a misunderstanding that the owner/operator has an option not to fix discrepancies found during the inspection. The regulation does not allow items to be deferred except in accordance with inoperative equipment procedures. Therefore, once you have determined it to be a discrepancy, a corrective action must be taken. Set it straight before you start the inspection.
  • III-8 Piper PA46-310P and Cessna 152 • Let’s take a look at the above aircraft and see what the requirements would be for an inspection of the aircraft to determine that it meets it’s type design and is in a condition for safe operation.
  • III-9 REGISTRATION AND AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATES UNITED SATES OF AMERICA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION-FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION STANDARD AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATE 1. NATIONALITY AND REGISTRATION MARKS2. MANUFACTURER AND MODEL 3. AIRCRAFT SERIAL NUMBER 4. CATEGORY 5. AUTHORITY AND BASIS FOR ISSUANCE This airworthiness certificate is issued pursuant to the Federal aviation Act of 1958 and certifies that, as of the date of issuance, the aircraft to which issued has been inspected and found to conform to the type certificate therefor, to be in a condition for safe operation, and had been shown to meet the requirements of the applicable comprehensive and detailed airworthiness code as provided in Annex 8 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, except as noted herein. Exceptions: 6. TERM AND CONDITIONS Unless sooner surrendered, suspended, revoked, or a termination date is otherwise established by the Administrator, this AIRWORTHINESS certificate is effective as long as the maintenance, preventive maintenance, and ALTERATIONS are performed in accordance with Parts 21, 43, and 91 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, as appropriate, and the aircraft is registered in the United States. DATE OF ISSUANCE FAA REPRESENTATIVE DESIGNATION NUMBER Any alteration, PRODUCTION, or misuse of this certificate may be punishable by a fine not exceeding $1,000 or imprisonment not exceeding 3 years or both. THIS CERTIFICATE MUST BE DISPLAYED IN THE AIRCRAFT IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE FEDERAL AVIATION REGULATIONS. AIRCRAFT REGISTRATION 91.203(a)(1)(2)
  • III-10 The first thing we need to do in our research is to determine the aircraft had been registered and that is has an airworthiness certificate. FAR 91.203 Civil Aircraft: Certification Requirements. If these are not present, we must inform the owner/operator of their responsibility.
  • III-11 THE AMT and IA MUST RESEARCH: MAINTENANCE RECORDS SPECIFICATION OR DATA SHEET AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES THE CURRENT MANUFACTURER’S MAINTENANCE MANUAL OR INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTINUED AIRWORTHINESS. FAR 43.13, 15, 16
  • III-12 Maintenance record research is a time consuming task but is a must. It is important to review the work that may have been accomplished since the last inspection. As part of the inspection you will be taking responsibility for the condition of the item being inspected and you want to make sure the work accomplished meets all the regulation and airworthiness requirements.
  • III-13 ARE THESE DOCUMENTS REQUIRED? TYPE CERTIFICATE DATA SHEET PIPER PA-46-310P MALIBU FLIGHT MANUAL PA-46-310P MALIBU APPROVED EQUIPMENT LIST PIPER PA-46-310P MALIBU
  • III-14 Let’s take a look at each of these documents and see what the significance of the documents are to the inspection and how it will be used to determine the aircraft to meet it’s type design.
  • III-15 The first document is the Aircraft Type Data Sheet. This document provides a listing of all the equipment installed at the time of manufacturing and list optional equipment that could be installed on the aircraft. Inspection of the aircraft to the type data sheet is a must.
  • III-16 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION A25S0 Revision 1 Piper PA-46-310P December 30, 1983 TYPE CERTIFICATE DATA SHEET NO.

  • III-35 Equipment Lists are needed to determine what is installed on the aircraft that is not included on the Type Data Sheet.
  • III-36 The following equipment list is a comprehensive list of all Cessna equipment available for this airplane. A separate equipment list of items installed in your specific airplane is provided in your aircraft file. The following list and the specific list for your airplane have a similar order of listing. This equipment list provides the following information:
  • III-37 An item number gives the identification number of the item. Each number is prefixed with a letter which identifies the descriptive grouping (example: A. Powerplant & Accessories) under which it is listed. Suffix letters identify the equipment as a required item, a standard item or an optional item. Suffix letters are as follows:

  • III-42 If additional equipment is to be installed, it must be done in accordance with the reference drawing, accessory kit instructions, or a separate FAA approval. NOTE
  • III-43 A complete equipment list will also assist in the task of accomplishing a weight and balance, Airworthiness Directive review and compliance listing. If your aircraft does not have a current equipment list it is impossible to know all the equipment make, model and serial numbers of the equipment installed.
  • III-44 Airworthiness Directives • Let’s take a look at Airworthiness Directives and the compliance requirements. Guidance and information can be found in AC39-7C Airworthiness Directives • Airworthiness Directives are mandatory and it is the responsibility of the owner/operator to assure the AD’s are complied with. Additionally, the maintenance technician performing an inspection is responsible to see the AD’s are complied with.
  • III-45 Airworthiness Directives • The person performing the compliance of an airworthiness directive is responsible to assure all airworthiness requirements are met. • Airworthiness Directive research is a must when performing any inspection.
