1 04 July 2007Cologne : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Juan Anton

2 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 2 Current requirements According to Part-66, the current licensing system includes the following categories of licences for aircraft: A1, A2, A3, A4 B1.1, B1.2, B1.3, B1.4 B2 C National system for sailplanes and balloons The qualification requirements for Licences B1.2 Piston engine aeroplanes and B1.4 Piston engine helicopters are the same for all sizes and complexity of aircraft.

3 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 3 Feedback received by EASA Industry and NAAs have requested the creation of an aircraft maintenance licence specific for light aircraft, with reduced qualification requirements that are better adapted to the reduced complexity of these aircrafts. In their view, the current system has the following shortcomings: Currently, there are not enough Part-66 licence holders to cover the needs that all the General Aviation industry will face when Part-M regulations come into force for aircraft not used in Commercial Air Transport. The current qualification requirements are too stringent for the reduced complexity of light aircraft, imposing also a non- reasonable economical impact. Current B1.2 and B1.4 licence holders may prefer to develop their career on larger piston engine aircraft rather than in light aircraft.

4 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 4 Task A working group was created, with members from Industry, NAA´s and EASA. 4 meetings (2 full days each) already held during May and June 2007 Work still undergoing, with the following envisaged calendar: NPA ready for external consultation by September End of NPA comment period by December CRD ready for external consultation by February End of CRD comment period by April Opinion issued by May 2008.

5 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 5 Key aspects of the aircraft maintenance licence for light aircraft (currently under discussion) New categories of aircraft maintenance licences: B3: applicable to non-pressurised piston engine aeroplanes, sailplanes and motor-powered sailplanes with MTOM less than 2000 Kg (not applicable to balloons or helicopters) ELA: applicable to European Light Aircraft (as defined in the near future by MDM.032, but excluding rotorcraft). This licence will be further divided in: ELA-Tech: licence limited to maintenance not including annual inspections and major repairs and modifications. ELA-Insp: includes the privileges of ELA-Tech plus annual inspections and major repairs and modifications.

6 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 6 Key aspects of the aircraft maintenance licence for light aircraft (currently under discussion) The B3 licence may be used in Commercial and Non- Commercial Air Transport. However, the definition of European Light Aircraft limits the use of the ELA licence to Non- Commercial Air Transport. The privileges associated with the B3 and ELA licences are limited to structure, powerplant and mechanical and electrical systems. They will also include work on avionic systems requiring simple tests. It is not the intention of the working group to create a specific licence similar to a B2 for light aircraft. For aircraft other than aeroplanes and helicopters it is the intention to maintain the possibility of using the corresponding Member State regulation for certifying staff (as stated in 66.A.100) in addition to the B3 and ELA licences (when applicable).

7 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 7 Key aspects of the aircraft maintenance licence for light aircraft (currently under discussion) As a summary, possible licences to be used are (in addition to A, B2 and C when applicable): Piston engine helicopters: B1.4 Piston engine aeroplanes above 2000 Kg MTOM and all pressurised piston engine aeroplanes: B1.2 Non-pressurised piston engine aeroplanes between 1000 Kg and 2000 Kg MTOM: B1.2 or B3 Non-pressurised piston engine aeroplanes below 1000 Kg MTOM: B1.2 or B3 or ELA Sailplanes and motor powered sailplanes below 850 Kg MTOM: B3 or ELA or National Licence Balloons falling outside the ELA definition: National Licence Balloons falling inside the ELA definition: ELA or National Licence These categories may change depending on the definition of ELA finally agreed by MDM.032.

8 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 8 Training and experience requirements (currently under discussion) B3 licence: Basic Knowledge: Examination per revised Appendix I to Part-66 (duration of approved Part-147 course: approx. 900h) Practical Experience: between 1 and 3 years (the same as for B1.2). Ref. 66.A.30(a)1 NOTE: Examination per Appendix I may be replaced by examination on human factors and aviation law if shown 10 years maintenance experience.

9 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 9 Training and experience requirements (currently under discussion) ELA-Tech licence: Basic Knowledge: 80 h training covering: human factors and aviation law, and specific training on one of the following: aircraft (either wood or metal or composite), or powerplant, or Balloon No practical experience required.

10 European Aviation Safety Agency 04 July 2007 WG : Aircraft Maintenance Licence for Light Aircraft Slide 10 Training and experience requirements (currently under discussion) ELA-Insp licence: Basic Knowledge: 40 h additional technical training Practical experience: 2 years experience as ELA-Tech certifying staff.
