The Regulations of Maintenance

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.

Architecture of an Alteration

Many "field approvals" are requested because the installer is unsure which alterations are major and which are minor. Valuable repair station resources are wasted on just-in-case field approvals and improper documentation practices. This seminar focuses on the tools necessary to evaluate an alteration for determining its effect on the aircraft.
