Understanding the regulations of the repair station is only part of the equation. Like pieces of a puzzle, each regulation is needed to fit together in order to fully view the repair station’s requirements. Understanding the regulatory relationship between the business (part 145); the maintenance it performs (part 43); the parts it uses (part 21); as well as the needs of customers (part 91) are essential to provide regulatory compliant services in aviation maintenance. This session will cover the basics of the maintenance and modification regulations but more importantly, it focuses on their integrated relationship with the business.
Presented by: Ric Peri, AEA vice president of government & industry affairs. (bio)
- Review the regulations applicable to a U.S. certificated repair station engaged in maintenance, preventive maintenance and alterations of U.S. registered aircraft, components or accessories.
- Review 14 CFR Part 145 and how various other regulatory parts interface with Part 145.
- Part 43 – Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance, Rebuilding, and Alteration
- Part 21 – Certification Procedures for Products and Articles
- Part 91 – General Operating and Flight Rules
Who Should Attend:
This course is intended for anyone who has a need to be thoroughly familiar with the Federal Aviation Regulations applicable to repair stations and aviation maintenance as is required by Subpart D to 14 CFR Part 145. In addition, this course provides a refresher for repair station owners, accountable managers, and quality control managers with responsibility for the repair stations processes and procedures who have previously attended the 5-day AEA Certified Repair Station Training course.
Be prepared to gain a foundational familiarity of the organization & content of the regulations. The class provides examples of the implementing the regs what auditors are looking for and best practices. Ric explains how the parts tie together, support each other, and differ. He tailors the content to make it relevant to the students.
This is a must attend course as you learn the regulations from different view points (FAA, Maintenance, Customer) AEA brings them all together to give a better understanding and forward direction to follow.
Be prepared to receive a vast amount of info, from someone who has a large part in the writing of the regulations. Don't be afraid to ask questions!
Very dense subject matter but totally worthwhile
Ric provides great commentary on Regs and knows this information inside and out
Great course for chief inspection
Good overview of part 145 and maintenance part 43
Other Upcoming Courses
This course is targeted for the home builder or avionics technician who wants to learn about performing an avionics installation in an experimental aircraft. The class focuses on the Garmin G3X Touch system, and a simplified example harness is constructed as part of the hands-on portion of the class. While the G3X Touch system is the primary focus, the wiring principles and general guidance can be applied to any experimental avionics system. From the do-it-yourselfer to the avionics shop looking to carve out a niche, this class has something for everyone.
Build and Keep Your Test Panel!
This course is designed for technicians who have experience with basic avionics installation practice, familiar with basic soldering skills and are looking for experience in LRU bench testing and avionics trouble shooting. Bench testing Nav, VHF Com and transponders will be the focus of study. Technicians will fabricate a general-purpose test panel that they will use in the course. Attendees will keep their fabricated test panel at course completion.
Build and Keep Your Wire Harness!
This course is designed for technicians who have experience with basic avionics installation practice and are looking for experience in transponder LRU bench testing, transponder flight line testing and aircraft trouble shooting. ADS-B transponders systems will be the focus of study. Attendees will keep their fabricated wire harness at course completion.
This course is designed for technicians who have experience with basic avionics installation practice and are looking for experience in Avionics Flight line testing, LRU bench testing and Aircraft trouble shooting. VOR, Localizer, Glideslope, Marker Beacon and VHF Comms will be the focus of study.
Attendees will learn the proper methods for conducting pitot-static and transponder tests and inspections. This full-day course offers hands-on training, including a regulatory review and an explanation of the proper administrative procedures for completing these critical certifications. With so many questions surrounding ADS-B this course will provide the answers and what you need to know.
The Basic Wiring & Avionics Installation course is designed for certificated repairmen, new avionics technicians, aviation maintenance technicians and recent graduates interested in improving or acquiring the skills necessary to perform avionics installations. This three-day seminar employs in-depth theory and hands-on lab exercises to immerse the attendee in the best practices used to plan, manage, and install a general aviation avionics panel. Installation lab includes: Avidyne IFD540 FMS/GPS Navigator, Garmin G5 Electronic Flight Instrument & GAD 29 ARINC 429 data bus module, PS Engineering PMA8000BT Audio Panel and Trans-Cal SSD120-35C-RS-232 Altitude Encoder
The Basic Pitot-Static & Transponder course is designed for entry-level avionics technicians or those looking for basic training on pitot-static & aircraft transponder systems. This two-day course covers the history and theory of operation of pitot-static instruments and transponders, as well as system set-up, hands-on testing, and the troubleshooting skills necessary to perform FAR 91.411 and 91.413 checks.
This day-and-a-half course is designed to provide maintenance personnel with the knowledge and skills required to operate and configure IFR6000 & IFR4000 to verify and maintain transponder, UAT, TCAS, DME, ILS, VOR, Comms and ELT. Plus a complete review all features and benefits of the AVX-10K Flight Line Test Set with emphasis on testing transponder (Mode S and ADS-B In/Out), UAT, TCAS and DME.
VIRTUAL LIVE COURSE
This course is designed for avionics technicians or apprentices who want to learn more about aircraft instrument systems and better understand their operation, installation considerations, and maintenance to become more effective troubleshooters. From simple mechanical gauges to complex electrical and electronic systems, this course covers nearly every instrument system in an aircraft.
VIRTUAL LIVE COURSE
This course is designed for currently employed repair station personnel and installers of ADS-B systems. Approximately 7% of all general aviation ADS-B installations are non-compliant based on the FAA’s ADS-B Performance Monitoring System. This course focuses on the proper configuration and testing of ADS-B installations to ensure your installation meets the performance requirements and regulations. Also included are troubleshooting tips and tricks that will help you resolve the common problems found in ADS-B installations.
VIRTUAL LIVE COURSE
As today’s modern airplanes become much more technologically advanced, so must the professionals that maintain them. The advanced avionics and instrumentation systems used in these aircraft rely on various forms of digital databus communication. Understanding digital databus theory is becoming more and more important for avionics technicians, and even A&P mechanics, to effectively test and troubleshoot these highly advanced aircraft systems.
This weeklong course provides an interactive environment to learn, understand and implement the regulations that govern repair station design and operations.
