Aviation Gas Free Engineering
The purpose of the AVGFE program is to ensure
a safe environment when aeronautical fuel systems are
worked on. NAVAIR 01-1A-35 outlines requirements
for the AVGFE program. Technicians certified under
the AVGFE program must be qualified QARs or
CDQARs and have graduated from an approved
AVGFE program course. O-level activities normally
provide their own AVGFE technicians; however,
those activities with less than three gas free
engineering (GFE) requirements in a 6-month period
may request the services of the supporting I-level

The QA division monitoring includes the
continuous collection and distribution to cognizant
personnel of all messages, letters, instructions, and
other information concerning the programs or
processes being monitored.
The QA division does not manage any of these
programs and processes. However, they are
responsible for overall surveillance of these programs
and processes to identify problems and to verify
compliance. Audits are one of the tools used in
monitoring these programs and processes. QA gives
continuous attention to program performance. They
prepare checklists that describe the specific functions
needed to effectively monitor each assigned program
and process. These checklists are the same for O- and
I-level maintenance with a few exceptions.
