Aircraft Maintenance Regulations

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.
