FAA Updates Inspector Guidance

The FAA’s Aircraft Maintenance Division has updated its field approval job aid to help inspectors determine the appropriate approval mechanism for major repair and alteration data.

The FAA states that the revision clarifies the classifications and definitions of some major alterations which inspectors are to follow. The document, available on the division’s webpage, features interactive navigation tools and direct links to referenced documents.

The modification replaces the guidance found in Figure 4-68, Eligibility Considerations for Field Approval, located in Order 8900.1, volume 4, chapter 9, Section 1, change 198. The general portions of change 198, however, remain operative.
