Guest TOSGcentral Posted June 30, 2008 Share Posted June 30, 2008 Yeah well! I am known for being quick and vitriolic with criticism of RAAus both politically and in terms of effective member contact. I can (and would far prefer) to be the other way. Today in the mail I received from RAAus a large and bulky package containing a complete print out of the web site ADs and ANs (complete with printed images), a robust plastic ring binder to keep them in and a package of alphabetical spacer inserts. In addition I got a large maintenance log book for ‘Maintainers’ in which to record their work as they/we are already supposed to do. These have presumably been forwarded to all L2s and upwards. While I personally am not too keen on the issue being forced in my personal circumstances re the log book, as I am doing detailed development airframe work on virtually a daily basis – so will have a lot more writing to do – I really do applaud this move! Reading between the lines I deduce the following: At last L2s have some solid information on which to do inspections at the hangar in hard copy form (do not need a computer at the hangar). That fits in very well with the UACR and UAR inspections requirements currently required – they will then either be done or signed off as having been done, or outstanding as the case may be according to the aircraft’s log book. We are on notice! You want to retain your rating then you may well be asked to demonstrate what you are doing to justify retaining the rating (log book)! I personally believe this is a huge (and expensive but positive step) that I can see Chris Kiehn’s hand behind and could very well be a foundation of leading to information upon which practical airworthiness training may be based. At present I repeat that I see this as a huge and positive step forward for RAAus Airworthiness and trust that it is the first step of establishing real Movement credentials in this crucial area. Goodonya Chris and RAAus! Aye Tony Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
