2 04 July 2007EASA Cologne M-005: Limited Pilot owner maintenance EASA workshop 04 July 2007

3 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 3 Current Part M.A.803 Pilot-owner authorisation (a) The pilot-owner is the person who owns or jointly owns the aircraft being maintained and holds a valid pilot licence with the appropriate type or class rating. (b) For any privately operated aircraft of simple design with a maximum take-off mass of less than 2730 kg, glider and balloon, the pilot-owner may issue the certificate of release to service after limited pilot owner maintenance listed in Appendix VIII. (c) Limited pilot owner maintenance shall be defined in the M.A.302 aircraft maintenance programme. (d) The certificate of release to service must be entered in the logbooks and contain basic details of the maintenance carried out, the date such maintenance was completed and the identity and pilot licence number of the pilot-owner issuing such a certificate.

4 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 4 Current AMC M.A.803 Pilot-owner authorisation AMC M.A.803 Pilot-owner authorisation 1. The pilot–owner should hold a valid pilot license issued or validated by a member state for the aircraft type being maintained. 2. Privately operated means the aircraft is not operated pursuant to M.A.201 (h) and (i). i.e means not involved in commercial activities or operational activities requiring an AOC IAW the national rules 3. A pilot owner should only issue a certificate of release to service for maintenance performed by the pilot owner and after demonstrating the competence to carry out such maintenance tasks.

5 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 5 History / need for such a working group JAA times: non complex and light aircraft not involved in commercial activities were not taken into account When the EASA was created, it became urgent, according to the remit of activities, to develop a regulation for non complex and light aircraft not involved in commercial activities. EASA Appendix VIII was based on FAR43 appendix A part (c) that needed to be updated.

6 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 6 History / need for such a working group Part M was published in 2003 (regulation 2042) NPA gave the opportunity to comment Part M (impact for non commercial aircraft) Appendix VIII was found too limitative. It was furthermore proposed re-evaluating the applicability of each task in Appendix VIII to gliders, balloons, airships and light aircraft. EASA decided that paragraph M.A.803 and Appendix VIII should be subject to further re-evaluation.

7 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 7 History / need for such a working group Creation of rulemaking task M.005. Comments arising from NPA have been considered and liaison with M-017 and MDM-032 was performed Composition of group M-005: a balance between experts from Industry (representing flying associations as AEI, EAS, OAPA) and NAAs Experts in the field of the General Aviation (Powered aircraft, glider, balloon, helicopter) + liaison with some TC holders, associations The group started to work on July meetings

8 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 8 M-005 Pilot owner maintenance What the new Appendix VIII will say …

9 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 9 M-005 Pilot owner maintenance Several criteria / basic principles: MTOW limit: kept as it is (2730 kg) You must be a pilot holding a valid license You must be the owner of the aircraft In the case of collectively owned aircraft, see next slides The pilot will issue the CRS in the logbook identity and pilot licence number of the pilot-owner issuing such a certificate The controlled environment is kept. The tasks are not critical for safety No competency check but self assessment The tasks shall be defined in the M.A.302 aircraft maintenance programme. Possible consequence in case of exportation (next slide)

10 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 10 ICAO Annex 6, Part II, Chapter (maintenance for general aviation): when the maintenance release is not issued by an approved Mmaintenance organisation, the person signing the CRS shall be licensed in accordance with ICAO Annex I. ICAO Annex I. Annex I (Personnel licensing) Chapter 4 : an applicant for any licence or rating shall demonstrate in a manner determined by the Licensing Authority, such requirements in respect of knowledge and skill that are specified for that licence or rating. M-005 Pilot owner maintenance: Competency check

11 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 11 A signatory shall not be less than 18 years of age and shall have demonstrated a level of knowledge relevant to the privileges to be granted and appropriate to the responsibilities of an aircraft maintenance licence holder in at least air law and maintenance requirements as well as other subjects. Additionally, sub-chapter authorises an approved maintenance organisation to appoint non-licensed personnel to exercise Certificate of Release to Service privileges provided that the above criteria are met. M-005 Pilot owner maintenance: Competency check

12 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 12 Thus, an aircraft which has undergone pilot owner maintenance IAW Part M appendix VIII may need to have additional maintenance carried out to ensure full compliance with ICAO requirements, for example on export from the EU (Sum up) no competency check but there are 3 filters: Tasks are not critical for safety Tasks listed in the Maintenance programme (NAA/CAMO approved) ARC review on a yearly basis M-005 Pilot owner maintenance: Competency check

13 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 13 M-005 Pilot owner maintenance New structure: Appendix VIII is now split in four lists aligned to ATA classification: Aeroplane (below 1000kg and between 1000 and 2730kg) / Sailplanes and powered sailplanes / Hot air ships, hot air and gas balloons / Rotorcraft – single engine (Part A to D) Most of the existing Appendix VIII with its proposed amendment from NPA was retained. Except item 41 (minor scheduled maintenance required at 50h/6months or less for piston-engine aeroplane or helicopters, gliders, balloons or airships (see further explanations) In fact the new lists are less restrictive, more flexible, more accurate than the existing one and adapted to the technology.

14 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 14 Proposal Appendix VIII: 10 principles 10 basic principles are to be complied with before any task is carried out under the terms of pilot owner maintenance: 1Before carrying out any maintenance tasks as listed in this appendix, the pilot owner must satisfy himself that he is competent to do the task. It is the responsibility of pilot owners to familiarize themselves with the standard maintenance practices for their aircraft and with the aircraft maintenance programme. 2The maintenance instructions of the TC holder as expressed in the maintenance manual and instructions for continuing airworthiness are to be considered in developing the maintenance programme; however, these requirements cannot override the generic lists in Part A to D.

15 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 15 Proposal Appendix VIII: 10 principles 3The maintenance data as specified in M.A.401 must be always available during the conduct of pilot owner maintenance. Details of the data referred to in the conduct of pilot owner maintenance must be included in the Certificate of Release to Service IAW M.A.803(d). 4. The need to use special tools, carry out special testing (e.g. NDT) or any unscheduled special inspections (e.g. heavy landing check) prevents the task from being carried out as pilot owner maintenance.

16 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 16 Proposal Appendix VIII: 10 principles 5Any task described in the aircraft flight manual as preparing the aircraft for flight (Example: assembling the glider wings or pre-flight), is considered to be a pilot task and is not considered pilot owner maintenance and therefore does not require a Certificate of Release to Service. 6Any task related to an Airworthiness Directive is not considered as pilot owner maintenance, unless specifically allowed in the AD. 7.The pilot owner must inform the M.A. Subpart G Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (if applicable) not later than 30 days after completion of the pilot owner maintenance task IAW M.A 305 (a).

17 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 17 Proposal Appendix VIII: 10 principles 8Inspection tasks/checks of any periodicity included in an approved maintenance programme can be carried out providing that the specified tasks are included in the generic lists at Parts A to D of Appendix VIII. 9In addition to the generic lists in Parts A to D, the pilot-owner may carry out very simple visual inspections for general condition and obvious damage of the airframe, engines and components as long as the task does not involve the removal of any component or element.

18 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 18 AMC to Appendix VIII Limited Pilot Owner Maintenance regarding Basic principles N°8 and N°9 The content of periodic inspections/checks as well as their periodicity is not regulated or standardized in an aviation specification. It is the decision of the manufacturer/Type Certificate Holder (TCH) to recommend a schedule for each specific type of inspection/check. For an inspection/check with the same periodicity for different TCHs, the content may differ, and in some cases may be critically safety related and may need the use of special tools or knowledge and thus would not qualify for pilot owner maintenance. Therefore the maintenance carried out by the pilot owner cannot be generalised to specific inspections such as 50 Hrs, 100 Hrs or 6 Month periodicity. Proposal Appendix VIII: AMC to principles n°8 and 9

19 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 19 AMC to Appendix VIII Limited Pilot Owner Maintenance regarding Basic principles N° 8 and N° 9 (…continuation) The Inspections to be carried out are limited to those areas and tasks listed in the Appendix; this allows flexibility in the development of the maintenance programme and does not limit the inspection to certain specific periodic inspections. A 50 Hrs /6 Month periodic inspection for a fixed wing aeroplane as well as the one-year inspection on a glider may normally be covered in the maintenance programme. Proposal Appendix VIII: AMC to principles n°8 and 9

20 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 20 Proposal Appendix VIII: 10 principles 10. Tasks in Appendix VIII Table A shown with ** exclude IFR operations following pilot owner maintenance. For these aircraft to operate under IFR operations, these tasks must be certified by an appropriate licensed engineer.

21 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 21 Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft….. M-005 Pilot owner maintenance

22 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 22 Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft One comment arising from NPA 2005/07 was the definition of pilot owner in the case of collectively owned aircraft. Existing AMC M.A.803 Is it applicable to associations representing flying clubs, training schools? Can we allow pilots in flying clubs for instance to carry out pilot owner maintenance? Rulemaking tasks M-010 created by the agency. M-005 took into account the concern about a « flying association / club » where members share the property of the aircraft (task M-010).

23 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 23 Clarification of joint ownership: an aircraft is either owned by a natural person or jointly owned by a group of natural persons, by a limited liability company or by a legal entity, accepted as the registered owner by the Member State of registry, irrespective of whether these owners are part of a non profit association, flying club/association, training schools etc. Only the registered owner is authorised to perform pilot owner maintenance: this excludes legal owners that are not in the document for the registration of aircraft. Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft

24 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 24 Only a natural person can possess a pilot licence. The pilot must hold a current licence, which must be valid for the aeroplane type concerned. Consequently, a company or a legal entity cannot hold a pilot licence and should designate the pilot authorised to perform limited pilot owner maintenance. The current Part M does not regulate this situation, the reason for which this proposal has been made. Ultimately, only the pilot owner or the pilot designated by the company or the legal entity as mentioned above is authorized to issue a CRS for the maintenance tasks he/she has performed. Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft

25 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 25 EASA is not committed to regulate the registration process (state of registry). What is enforceable is under the national rules. The national rules will apply. Refer to your national system whereby you are recognized as the owner of the aircraft. Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft

26 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 26 Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft Paragraph M.A.803 (a) is proposed to be amended as follows: (a) The pilot-owner is the person who owns or jointly owns the aircraft being maintained and holds a valid pilot license issued or validated by a Member State for the aircraft type or class rating with the appropriate type or class rating.

27 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 27 Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft Paragraph M.A.803 (a) (…continuation) 1. An aircraft, as referred to above paragraph (a) may be jointly owned by: (i) a number of natural persons on the registration form, or (ii) a limited liability company or a legal entity accepted as registered owner under the applicable national laws pertaining to the registration of aircraft. 2. Pilot owner maintenance shall be performed by: (i) the pilot owner or, (ii) in the case of joint ownership, the pilot owners designated by the registered owners of the aircraft being maintained or (iii) where the joint owner is a limited liability company or a legal entity, by a pilot who is a member of, and designated by, that company or legal entity.

28 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 28 Amendment to AMC M.A.803 Pilot-owner authorisation 1.Privately operated means the aircraft is not operated pursuant to M.A.201 (h) and (i). 2.A pilot owner may only issue a certificate of release to service for maintenance he/she has performed. 3.In the case of a jointly owned aircraft, the maintenance program should list the names of all pilots designated to perform pilot owner maintenance and the limited maintenance tasks they may perform. Pilot owner maintenance versus collectively owned aircraft

29 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 M-005 Limited pilot owner maintenance Slide 29 Pilot-owner maintenance Paragraph M.A.803 (d) is proposed to be amended as follows: (b) For any privately operated aircraft of simple design with a maximum take-off mass of less than 2730 kg, glider and balloon, the pilot-owner may issue the certificate of release to service after limited pilot owner maintenance listed in Appendix VIII. (c) Limited pilot owner maintenance shall be defined in the M.A.302 aircraft maintenance programme. (d) The certificate of release to service must be entered in the logbooks and contain basic details of the maintenance carried out, the maintenance data used, the date such maintenance was completed and the identity and pilot licence number of the pilot-owner issuing such a certificate.
