  3. 3. Why Quality in Service? Use quality practices to: Understand and improve operational Identify processes. problems quickly and systematically. Establish valid and reliable service performance measures. Measure customer satisfaction and other performance outcomes.
  4. 4. Aviation QualityAssurance Aviation quality assurance is a system for monitoring aviation equipment, programs, and procedures to ensure that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) quality standards are being met. The Aviation System Standards (AVN) was designed to maximize the effectiveness and safety of aviation operations, and is enforced by the FAA Safety and Quality Assurance Office.
  5. 5. The primary safety programs of the Aviation System Standards include: Flight Safety Environmental Occupational Safety and Health Safety Management Systems Internal Evaluation Programs
  6. 6.  The Flight Safety program is a leading example of a quality assurance system in action. Safety programs are developed and tested to assess potential risk factors in flight operations. Two key programs that monitor and resolve flight safety issues are: the FOQA (Flight Operational Quality Assurance) the ASAP (Aviation Safety Action
  7. 7.  Both programs collect and analyze recorded flight data. The information is taken from routine flights or is collected in response to an accident; either way, it is used to assess the safety of flight operations, air traffic control methods, and airport and aircraft design and maintenance. Repair stations and aircraft maintenance technicians are subject to quality standards regarding their inspections, maintenance, and repair work. They can also use the information obtained through FOQA and ASAP programs to improve maintenance procedures.
  8. 8. Maintenance OfAircraftof aircraft is aMaintenance comprehensive, ongoing process. The entire aircraft needs to be examined, maintained, and have the necessary parts replaced to uphold the safety standards mandated by the FAA. Aircraft are required to be maintained after a certain period of calendar time or flight hours or flight cycles. Proper aircraft maintenance is essential for keeping aircraft and aircraft parts in optimal condition, and ensuring the

  10. 10. STANDARD PARTS A standard part is a part or material that conforms to an established industry or U.S. Government-published specification. The FAA’s acceptance of a standard part as an approved part is based on the certification that the part has been designed and produced in accordance with an independent established set of specifications and criteria. Standard parts are produced per
  11. 11.  To provide approvals under which parts could be produced, the FAA issued the following Technical Standard Orders (TSO): TSO-C148, Aircraft Fasteners; TSO-C149, Aircraft Bearings; and TSO- C150, Aircraft Seals. Authorizations for these TSO’s are not issued for standard parts nor for parts used in critical applications. In contrast to “standard part” nuts, bolts, etc., these fasteners, bearings, and seals must meet the TSO

A flange is provided on the sidewall to deflect runway water away from the engines. CD: Center rib with deflector RD: Center groove with deflector
