CHAPTER 94. INSPECT A REPAIR STATION AND ITS AUTHORIZATION FOR WORK AWAY FROM ITS FIXED LOCATION
SECTION 1. BACKGROUND
PROGRAM TRACKING AND REPORTING SUBSYSTEM (PTRS) ACTIVITY CODES.
Maintenance: 3606 (New)
Avionics: 5606 (New)
OBJECTIVE. This chapter provides guidance for authorization and surveillance of a repair station that performs aircraft maintenance away from it fixed location.
GENERAL. There are three circumstances that allow a Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 145 repair station to do work away from the station:
A. When a “special circumstance” arises (temporary basis) such as a blown tire, radio, or navigation equipment changes, etc.)
B. When the repair or alternation requires the repair station to make repairs or alternations over an extended period (such as the aircraft is in for extended maintenance and an interior shop is requested to install a new interior at that location).
C. When it is necessary to perform such working on a recurring basis with operations specification (OpSpec) D100 authority.
NOTE: Working away from the repair station is not equivalent to a line maintenance or geographic authorization. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 8300.10, Airworthiness Inspector’s Handbook, volume 2, chapter 163, provides geographical authorization guidance.
Paragraphs A and B requires notification and authorization from the CHDO and the principal inspector (PI).
