recorded on the Aircraft Engine Record card. An
engine card is shown in figure 7-7.
For the most part, the card is self-explanatory.
The blocks are numbered to correspond to items
of information reported on ETRs.
An understanding of data elements and ETRs
will clarify the entries made on the Aircraft Engine
Engine Transaction Report (ETR)
An ETR is used to advise the controlling
custodian of actions concerning the use or status
code changes of assigned engines. An ETR is
normally submitted once each workday covering
all transactions occurring since the previous
report. Reports will be submitted not later than
2400 hours of the first working day following the
date the action occurred. Should it become
necessary to submit a late report, use the actual
Julian date of action and indicate in the Remarks
section that the report is late. Some situations that
require the submission of an ETR are as follows:
. The installation of a serviceable,
. The removal of an engine and retention as
a serviceable uninstalled engine
. The removal of an engine as an
. The receipt and transfer of both installed
and uninstalled engines
. The striking of an engine from the Navy
There are numerous other situations that
require an ETR; however, those listed above are
used most often.
The preparation of an ETR is a relatively
simple (but important) task. NAVAIRINST
13700.15, as well as instructions issued by the
controlling custodians, contain guidelines and
examples that cover almost all anticipated engine
transactions. These instructions also provide
detailed information on status code and STAR
code applications and required data elements.
Refer to the matrices listed in figures 7-8 and 7-9
for more information on required data elements
for specific status/STAR code combinations.
