OBJECTIVE. This chapter provides guidance for inspecting the repair station to verify that the requirements of Title of the of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 145, § 145.151 are met.
GENERAL. Each repair station must have the management personnel necessary for the scope and complexity of its organization. The regulation requires an accountable manager, supervisory personnel, inspection personnel, and certificated personnel to approve the articles it maintains/alters for return to service. It may be necessary for the repair station management structure to warrant additional supervisory personnel that are not required by regulation. In addition, a repair station is required
to maintain a roster of managerial, supervisory, and inspection personnel. This list must include their qualifications and authority in the repair station. This roster may be maintained in paper or electronic format, and must be accessible for review and inspection by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
NOTE: A repair station located outside the United States is not required to employ personnel that hold an FAA certificate issued under 14 CFR part 65. However, if employed by a repair station located outside the United States, the personnel must have a minimum of 18 months of practical experience in the work preformed. On the other hand, be trained in or thoroughly familiar with the methods, techniques, practices, aids, equipment, and tools used to perform the maintenance, preventive maintenance, or alterations. All supervisory personnel must understand, read, and write English.
