Can You Define “Appliance”? (15 min. sessions)
On Dec. 13, the ARSA online training program released a series of three 15-minute sessions critically reading the regulations in 14 CFR. The sessions use the term “appliance,” which appears in countless places across the aviation safety rules, as the focus on this exploration.
The sessions should be viewed in order and may be purchased together for a discounted price by clicking here. Please note that since these sessions are less than an hour long, special pricing applies:
Session 1: “Appliance” Defined
This session provides participants a lesson in reading regulations with a critical eye. Many aviation terms used during the “normal” course of a day are taken for granted. Meanings and expectations are set by “tribal knowledge” rather than first-hand review. This session helps ensure each word in a aviation safety regulation is read carefully so any exceptions or conditions are understood.
Session 2: “Appliance” Applied
This session provides participants information on when and how the word “appliance” is used within the design, production, operation and maintenance rules.
Session 3: “Appliance” – Yes, No or Maybe
This session provides participants the opportunity to test their knowledge of whether an article is an appliance by using case studies.
