Review Initiated Of Air Carriers Use Of Aircraft Repair Stations
January 31, 2002
This review will determine if the FAA:
- ensures that repair stations have controls which provide adequate security for aircraft and repair facilities;
- verifies that foreign civil aviation authorities conducting inspections on FAA’s behalf ensure that aircraft are adequately safeguarded, repairs are completed properly, and identified deficiencies are corrected;
- monitors changes in air carriers’ maintenance expenses and repair station usage to identify noteworthy trends and effectively target FAA’s surveillance resources; and
- ensures that maintenance work at FAA-approved repair stations is performed by trained, qualified personnel and complies with approved procedures.
