Air Carrier Contract Maintenance Requirements

 
Docket ID: FAA-2011-1136
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Parent Agency: Department of Transportation (DOT)
Summary:

This rulemaking would revise the maintenance regulations for part 121 air carriers and for part 135 air carriers with airplanes having a passenger seating capacity of 10 or more. It requires affected air carriers to develop policies, procedures, methods, and instructions for performing contract maintenance that are acceptable to the FAA and to include them in their maintenance manuals. It would also require the air carriers to provide a list to the FAA of all persons with whom they contract their maintenance. These changes are needed because contract maintenance has increased to over 70 percent of all air carrier maintenance, and numerous investigations have shown deficiencies in maintenance performed by contract maintenance providers. This rulemaking helps ensure consistency between contract and in-house air carrier maintenance and enhance the oversight capabilities of both the air carriers and the FAA.
