Cargo Loading Manuals. These manuals have been prepared for selected cargo-type aircraft. They provide instructions on authorized procedures for loading, securing, and unloading. All typical loads (ground equipment, troops, engines, etc.) and other assigned transport missions are covered and illustrated. Most cargo loading manuals are subject to controls identical to NATOPS. In fact, for aircraft that do not have separate cargo loading manuals, the information can normally be found in the applicable NATOPS flight manual. MAINTENANCE MANUALS Maintenance manuals contain instructions for the effective use and support of weapons systems or equipment. These instructions include, but are not limited to, troubleshooting, installation, removal, and repair of system components. General Engineering Series Manuals (01-1A Series) The general engineering series manuals cover standard aviation maintenance practices that apply to all aircraft rather than to a particular aircraft. These publications serve as useful training tools, and they prevent duplication of standard practices within other manuals. Aircraft Maintenance Instruction Manuals (MIMs) Aircraft MIMs are prepared on a systems maintenance concept. They appear in two basic formats, conventional and work package. The older conventional manual specification required that the coverage reflect both organizational and selected intermediate maintenance for contractor-furnished equipment (CFE). The more recent, task-oriented work package manuals cover organizational-level maintenance only. (Both conventional and work package formats for technical manuals were covered earlier in this chapter.) Work Unit Code (WUC) Manual WUC manuals are provided for each model of aircraft. They are identified by a -8 in part III of the NAVAIR publication number. For example, NAVAIR 01-F14AAA-8 is the WUC Manual for the F-14 Aircraft. There are WUC manuals provided for every type of aircraft and support equipment. The WUC manual is used as a maintenance aid and recording guide in conjunction with the Maintenance Data Systems. It identifies assigned system-related equipment codes pertaining to various servicing and maintenance functions. These codes are used to record maintenance information into an automated data base. The information is processed to produce management reports that are used to determine material failure analysis and supply statistics, as well as maintenance and equipment design improvements. Weight and Balance Data Manual, NAVAIR 01-lB-40 The weight and balance data manuals are used jointly with the U.S. Air Force. They provide a standard system for recording field weight and balance of certain aircraft. The initial forms, charts, and records contained in the manual are prepared by the original manufacturer before delivery of the aircraft to the Navy. The manual remains with the aircraft during its entire service life. It provides a means of maintaining a continuous, current record of the aircraft’s basic weight, balance, and loading data. The records are maintained by the aircraft reporting custodian and overhaul activities. It must be brought up-to-date before transfer of aircraft. The procedures for maintaining this manual are contained in the USN Aircraft Weight And Balance Control Manual, NAVAIR 01-lB-50. Crew Station Manuals and In-Flight Maintenance Manuals Crew station and in-flight maintenance manuals are designed for large, high-density avionics aircraft with sophisticated, computer-controlled, integrated weapons systems. They provide the operators of the individual stations the capability of monitoring logic analysis and signal flow data. They aid in maintaining mission capability and assist in rapid fault detection, and possible corrective action, while still airborne. Airborne Missiles-Guided Weapons and Target and Drone Manuals Because of the similarity of missiles and drones to aircraft, these manuals are prepared to the same general specifications as aircraft manuals. However, they are tailored to missile and drone specific functional application. These manuals cover basic description, theory and troubleshooting, checkout, 2-25
