Updated FAA Form 8130-3 to Harmonize Global Cooperation
The Federal Aviation Administration recently announced a revised FAA Form 8130-3, used for domestic airworthiness approval of new products and articles; approval for return to service of altered aircraft parts; and export airworthiness approvals of aircraft engines, propellers or articles. A presentation outlining the major changes is available here.

The FAA revised the form as part of harmonization efforts with other civil aviation authorities to ease the identification and traceability of goods between the United States and other countries.

The new 8130-3 will go into effect on Feb. 1, 2014; until then, continue to use the current form dated June 1, 2001 (06/01).

Formalizing On the Job Training
Blue Tuna    Share   
More than 90% of the critical skills that aviation based maintenance techs use are acquired through On the Job Training (OJT). Many companies depend upon OJT to flow down training from OEMs and specific technologies to the hangar floor fast and cheap. OJT classes often consist of one person (a lead mechanic or technician) showing another person (or a group) how a task is accomplished. While the intent may be good the method has its own set of inherent problems. A highly skilled mechanic may not be a good communicator. On the other hand a highly skilled communicator will have a difficult time effectively teaching courses that lacks planning and structure. MORE
