Aviation Maintenance Profession Advisory Circular

August 26, 2014

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is soliciting industry input on draft Advisory Circular (AC) 65-30B entitled “Overview of the Aviation Maintenance Profession.”

The draft AC provides information and statistics regarding careers in aviation maintenance, including employer prospects, industry outlooks, certification requirements and application procedures. The draft revises military occupation codes for those wishing to credit military aviation maintenance experience towards FAA mechanic certification.

While industry applauds the agency for initiating the change, the draft leaves much room for improvement. Woefully missing from the update are many present-day realities and resources that have come into existence since the AC’s original publication in 2001.

The comment period is set to close on September 10. The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) joined the Aviation Technician Education Council (ATEC) requesting a 120-day extension for comment.

Comment on the draft AC through utilization of the comment template or by sending your comments to staff for inclusion in the association’s submission.
