ARSA Requests Clarification of FAA Repair Station Human Factors Training Requirements
July 27, 2006
ARSA has asked the FAA’s Flight Standards Service to clarify inconsistencies in guidance on human factors training in repair station training programs. Read ARSA’s request here (.pdf).
Language in Airworthiness Inspector’s Handbook, Order 8300.10 and Advisory Circular (AC) 145-10 suggests that human factors training is mandatory; a note in the order states that exclusion of such training “would hinder the training program approval.”
ARSA has asked the FAA for the regulatory basis for requiring human factors training.
If no regulatory basis exists, ARSA suggests that the guidance material be changed to reflect that human factors training, while beneficial to any maintenance organization, is not required under the Federal Aviation Regulations, and its absence will not prohibit approval of a training program tailored to meet the requirements of Section 145.163, “Training Requirements.”
