form is the same one that is used in the aircraft logbook. (See chapter 6, fig. 6-6.) Separate pages are used for each type of directive, and all applicable directives are recorded. Lists 02 and 04 for engines may be available for your use; however, they are NOT an authorized part of the engine AESR.
Changes and bulletins concerning equipment, other than engines, present no special problems in recording because the numerical quantity of these directives is relatively small. Power plant changes and bulletins, however, are issued in greater numbers. Therefore, they require careful screening to ensure that the AESR reflects the actual configuration of the equipment.
Definite rules and procedures are required to ensure that the AESR contains a record of the applicable directives and, at the same time, eliminates the recording of unnecessary material.
To provide for uniformity throughout the system, the following procedures apply for all equipment: All changes and bulletins, including revisions, that direct a material change or modification of the particular equipment are recorded in this section of the AESR. All technical directives are logged in numerical sequence, except on pages titled "Revisions." These are logged in the order that they are received. All activities account for all applicable bulletins or production equivalents by number. Applicable status codes and descriptions are used. Technical directives that affect a component that has an SRC card, EHR card, ASR, or MSR are also recorded in the technical directives part of that card or record. In this instance, the technical directive identification is entered, and a notation to see the applicable SRC, EHR, ASR, or MSR is entered in the Title/Remarks column.
Other entries are recorded in the same way as those in the TD section of the aircraft logbook.
When used in the AESR, the Miscellaneous/ History Form (chapter 6, fig. 6-7) is used for recording pertinent information for which no other place has been provided. For example, special test data, abnormal characteristics of equipment, significant damage and/or repair, authorization for extension of operating intervals, and Naval Oil Analysis Program entries are made on this form. When equipment is exposed to large quantities of salt water, fire-extinguishing agents, or other corrosive material, an entry is made on the Miscellaneous/History Form to include a description of the decontamination and approximate time between exposure and completion of decontamination. All entries on this form require an authorized signature and the name of the activity.
IMA and depot activities screen this form before discarding it and initiating a new form. When the specific information is of permanent value, this information is transcribed onto the new form and retained in the AESR. A minimum of 2 years of data is maintained at all times.
To aid the IMA and depot activities in determining repair or rework requirements of equipment following rejection, the activity that rejects the equipment MUST completely document the reason for and nature of the rejection on the Miscellaneous/History Form. For example, an entry such as overtemp is not enough. Information must be given as to the degree of overtemp, the length of overtemp, and the circumstances under which it occurred, such as at start, in flight, during shutdown, or during ground runup. Corrective measures that were taken must also be listed.
If there is a change in the authorized inspection interval, the following entry is required: Effective (date) was placed on (specified interval) in accordance with (authority); next inspection due (date or hours). A change in the inspection induction date or hourly sequence requires that the following entry be made: Effective (date) inspection induction date (or hours) was rescheduled from (old date or hours) to (new date or hours) as authorized by (reference):
The Preservation/Depreservation Record in the AESR contains a record of preservation, represervation, and depreservation. It is maintained in the same way that it is maintained in the aircraft logbook (chapter 6, fig. 6-8). If the equipment (engine propellers, ejection seats, or auxiliary power units [APUs]) is installed in the aircraft and the aircraft is preserved but the preservation requirement is not applied to the specific equipment, then no preservation entry is made to the equipment AESR.
The Installed Explosives Devices Form contains a record of all explosive safety devicesContinue Reading
