Parts 121 and 145: ATOS Guidance on the Air Carrier/Maintenance Provider Relationship

HBAW 05-07A, Enhanced Repair Station & Air Carrier Oversight Program

The FAA recently released updates to a series of Handbook Bulletins containing the framework for applying a new risk-based oversight system to the maintenance provider/air carrier relationship. HBAW 05-07A includes numerous attachments which make extensive changes to Order 8300.10, the Airworthiness Inspector’s Handbook.

This system will allow for ongoing assessment of repair stations and air carriers through enhanced oversight of those contract maintenance providers deemed to be “high risk.”

In addition, information on the newly revised Program Tracking and Reporting Subsystem (PTRS) activity codes is included. Each operator and agency will be required to make the new program part of their respective manual system.

These following bulletins are part of the new risk-based oversight program for contract maintenance providers as set out in HBAW 05-07.
