record acceptance information, custody and
transfer, record of rework, preservation and
depreservation, and TDs. Also, it contains a
record of periodic maintenance performed by
hours, starts, date completed, next PM due,
activity, and signature. It accompanies all items
of SE that have MRCs, MIMs, an HSI, a
manufacturers handbook, or periodic mainte-
nance requirements as directed by TDs. Excep-
tions are precision measuring equipment (PME),
engine test cells or stands, and oxygen-nitrogen
generating plants (GB-1As), as these items have
their own records. Reporting custodians retain the
latest completed copy and current copy of the
record, and they transcribe the accumulated data
upon initiation of each new record.
SE TRANSACTION REPORT (TR)
The SE Transaction Report (OPNAV
4790/64) is used to record SE issue and receipt
transactions, Figure 4-44 shows the TR card with
an explanation of the various entries for the
activity submitting the report.
When issuing SE on a subcustody basis, the
TR is signed by the user in block A. The white,
green, and yellow copies of the TR are retained
by the issuing activity for local recordkeeping
purposes. The pink copy is retained by the using
activity for its records.
When returning SE to the reporting custodian
(usually the IMA), block B of the TR is signed
by receiving personnel.
All of the discrepancies noted during issue,
receipt, or preoperational inspections are
annotated on a VIDS/MAF by IMA production
The completed and processed copy 1 of the
VIDS/MAF is retained by maintenance control
for a minimum of 6 months from the completed
date (block B30). The historical file requirements
are described in the following paragraphs.
AIRCRAFT INSPECTION FILES
The aircraft inspection file is maintained for
each BUNO. It should be arranged to group the
control, look, and fix-phase documents for a
given inspection. Documents in support of a phase
or special inspection are retained for one complete
inspection cycle or 6 months, whichever is greater.
Calendar inspection documents are retained for
the last two completed calendar inspections.
Conditional inspection documents are maintained
in this file for 6 months from the completion date.
AIRCRAFT GENERAL FILES
The aircraft general file is maintained by
BUNO in JCN sequence. It is grouped by month
of completion (block B30 on the VIDS/MAF).
Individual units have the option of establishing
local files by work center as long as the above
filing order is maintained. All other aircraft and
engine VIDS/MAFs are contained in this file.
Filing VIDWMAFs with an action taken code of
N is optional.
TD COMPLIANCE FILE
The TD compliance file is maintained by
BUNO for a minimum of 6 months from the
completed date, as shown in block B30 of the
NOTE: Upon transfer of the aircraft, the
aircraft inspection, TD compliance, and general
files are forwarded with the aircraft.
Miscellaneous files contain all non-BUNO
VIDS/MAFs. They may be separated by TEC,
serial number, or JCN as desired by the local
THE MONTHLY MAINTENANCE
The purpose and contents of the organiza-
tional and intermediate maintenance activities
monthly maintenance plans are discussed in the
The purpose of the monthly maintenance plan
is to provide scheduled control of the predictable
maintenance workload. This workload might
include inspections, transfer and/or receipt of
aircraft, and incorporation of technical directives.
By scheduling the predictable maintenance, the
capability for accomplishing unscheduled work
can be determined. Additionally, requirements for
