5.PROCEDURES. If the contractor is a certificated repair station, the inspecting ASI should determine the qualifications. Ensure that the outsource maintenance facility is properly certificated and rated for the work being performed. If the repair station is authorized to work at a place other than the repair station fixed location, it is recommended that operation specifications (OpSpecs) D100 be reviewed. This OpSpec lists the authorized work
to be accomplished away from the fixed base and the manual location in which the procedures are listed.
A. Inspect the Outsource Maintenance Provider’s Organization. Ensure that the organization is adequate to support the air operator’s Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Program (CAMP).
B. Inspect the Technical Library. Ensure that the maintenance facility’s library is available for use by the facility personnel and includes the following:
Repair Station Manual (RSM) (if applicable)
Quality Control Manual (QCM) (if applicable)
The air operator’s general maintenance manual or applicable portions and any other required portions of the CAMP necessary to properly maintain the aircraft
Aircraft, engine, propeller, appliance, and emergency equipment manual(s)
Manufacturer’s maintenance and component repair manual(s)
Task cards, engineering orders, etc.
C. Review the Work Process. If there is an aircraft, engine, or appliance undergoing maintenance in the facility, this is a good time to observe/review the entire process in work. A good starting place is the planning department (it is recommended that the operator’s manual be verified for completeness as you follow the process). The air operator’s work package usually comes to this section first. Review the inspection package provided by the operator. The first page is usually called a work scope. It will list all of the Airworthiness Directives (AD), and non-routine maintenance to be accomplished; list all of the phase; or check work cards to be accomplished at the maintenance visit; and it will list any components that have schedule removal requirements.
(1) Be aware!! Every air operator’s system is different; the information herein is provided as a tool and is not to be used verbatim. The inspecting ASI must always refer to the air operator’s manual procedures and use them as the guide to be followed.
