This webinar will show how to easily interpret the FAA guidance material to create the manuals - Repair Station Manual (RSM), Quality Control Manual (QCM), and Training Program Manual (TPM) - that form the basis for the approval of new repair station certificates and continuing compliance for current repair station certificate holders.
Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) Advisory Circular (AC) numbers 145-9 and 145-10 provide information material for repair station certificate holders or applicants on how to develop and evaluate a Repair Station Manual (RSM), Quality Control Manual (QCM), and Training Program Manual (TPM). FAA Order 8900.1 explains the policies and procedures applicable to a 14 CFR Part 145 repair station and is the material used by FAA inspectors by which they will evaluate and approve applications for new repair stations and/or changes to existing repair station certificate holders.
This webinar will provide a high level review of FAA requirements for 14 CFR Part 145 FAA repair station manuals; RSM, QCM, and TPM. The material covered will provide easy to follow guidelines on how to comply with Part 145, FAA AC’s 145-9 and 145-10, and FAA Order 8900.1. An overview of the FAA Part 145 Job Aid will be provided that gives step-by step compliance that is used by FAA Inspectors when they evaluate Part 145 repair stations.
This presentation will be beneficial to those who are establishing new FAA Part 145 Repair Stations or those who are in need of updating their manuals to the latest revision of the Federal Aviation Regulations. The information provided will assist repair station accountable managers, quality managers, and those responsible for ensuring that their manuals comply with regulatory requirements and guidance material.
