Who Should Attend?

Current quality managers, technicians, mechanics, and repairmen who are involved in the management of a repair station as well as individuals looking to establish a 14 CFR Part 145 repair station.

U.S. Regulations for Repair Stations

This program will 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. This training program will review 14 CFR Part 145 and how various other regulatory parts interface with Part 145. This module includes a thorough examination of the U.S. regulations needed to manage a U.S. FAA certificated repair station.

  • Part 145 – Repair Stations
  • Part 43 – Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance, Rebuilding, and Alteration
  • And the applicable maintenance sections of:
    • Part 91 – General Operating and Flight Rules
    • Part 121 – Operating Requirements: Domestic, Flag, and Supplemental Operations
  • Part 135 – Operating Requirements: Commuter and On Demand Operations and Rules Governing Persons on Board Such Aircraft

Preparing for an FAA Audit of your Repair Station

This course will include a complete review of the FAA guidance and policy regarding the procedures to assure a repair station is operating within the criteria of its manuals.

The instructor will describe the path of regulatory authority from the repair station and explain what the FAA is looking for in an audit. Using AC 145-5 and FAA Order 8900.1, this course will allow the repair station to perform an internal audit prior to its annual FAA audit to assure that it is operating as stated in its various manuals.

Many repair station feel that the FAA audit is an unknown, "gotcha" procedure that is feared.  Following this program the student will understand the scope of the FAA audit, understand the logic of the audit items and be able to be better prepared to receive an external audit.

Students will be provided with the reference links to all FAA regulations, guidance and policy.

Writing Repair Station Manuals

Why pay thousands to a consultant who simply wants to use a template for you with no real understanding of your business? Don’t over-commit your repair station to processes and procedures outside the scope of your work. Simplify your manual, speed up your audits and maintain compliance with this thorough review of your manuals.

In this two-day hands-on course, attendees will draft or revise their own:

  • Repair Station Manual
  • Quality Control Manual
  • Repair Station Training Program.

Bring your laptop, current manuals and be prepared to write.
