have the training necessary to adequately approve
the aircraft for return to service; especially modern
avionics systems with the current level of integration .
But it doesn't stop there . The performance rules
have additional requirements . First, each person
performing maintenance shall use the methods,
techniques and practices prescribed in the current
manufacturer's maintenance manual or ICA
(instructions for continued airworthiness), or other
methods, techniques and practices acceptable to
the administrator . Second, he or she must use the
tools, equipment and test apparatus necessary to
assure completion of the work in accordance with
accepted industry practices (ยง 43 .13 (a)) .
So where does a non-dealer obtain the technical
data necessary to perform maintenance properly?

Oh, they use the advisory circular or other
methods, techniques and practices acceptable to
the administrator . No, this doesn't meet muster
any longer . Advisory Circular 43 .13-1B specifically
states, "This AC contains methods, techniques and
practices acceptable to the administrator for the
inspection and repair of non-pressurized areas of
civil aircraft, only when there are no manufacturer
repair or maintenance instructions ." AC 43 .13-2B
states the alteration data may be used as approved
data for major alterations when the data is not
contrary to manufacturer's data . So the old days of
using AC 43 .13 in lieu of manufacturer's data were
superseded with the latest rewrite of the ACs .
If the local A&P is representing unfair and
technically non-compliant competition, where are
the authorities? Well, they are out to lunch .
Their argument is they don't have the resources .
This isn't completely unrealistic . The agency is

... and Executive AutoPilots has it.
Decades of outstanding experience, including:
* Service and repair of Cessna, Century, King, and S-TeC autopilots
* Full service avionics sales, installation, and repairs
* Design and installation of custom panels with a lifetime warranty*
But the most important experience is the great one you'll have with us. Ask any of our customers.
Or give Daniel Casey a call and experience first-hand what we mean by Dedicated to Excellence.
