CHAPTER 1 NAVAL AVIATION MAINTENANCE PROGRAM (NAMP) Most of the duties that AZs perform are in direct support of the aviation maintenance technicians who work directly in the aviation maintenance effort. Since most of the duties and responsibilities of an AZ are specifically outlined in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP), OPNAVINST 4790.2, you should have a good working knowledge of the NAMP. This chapter will concentrate on the organizational and intermediate levels of aviation maintenance that the NAMP describes. It is to activities that perform these levels of maintenance that you, as an AZ, will most likely be assigned. Since it is in the staff divisions of aviation maintenance activities that AZs are assigned, some of the important duties and responsibilities of staff divisions, especially those that an AZ might perform, are discussed. NAMP OBJECTIVES LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Identify the purpose of the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP). Q1. Q2. Q3. Q4. The objective of the NAMP is to achieve and continually improve aviation material readiness and safety standards through the optimum use of available resources (money, manpower, and material management). This objective is accomplished through command attention, policy direction, technical direction, management, and administration of all programs that affect activities responsible for aircraft maintenance. As the basic document that governs the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, OPNAVINST 4790.2 establishes a standardized set of policies and procedures for the management of all Navy and Marine Corps aviation maintenance activities. Any directive or instruction in conflict with the provisions in the NAMP should be revised to conform with the NAMP. OPNAVINST 4790.2 consists of five volumes. Each volume describes policies, procedures, responsibilities, and functions that may be applicable to one, two, or all three levels of maintenance. These five volumes are as follows: Volume I—Organizational and Intermediate Level Maintenance Volume II—Depot Level Maintenance Volume III—Maintenance Data System Volume IV—Data Processing Requirements Volume V—NAMP Standard Operating Proce- dures The NAMP, available in paper and on CD-ROM, outlines the standardized organizational structure of all aviation maintenance activities. The continuous improvement of aviation material readiness and safety through the efficient use of resources is an objective of what program? The NAMP, OPNAVINST 4790.2, has how many volumes? What volume of the NAMP outlines procedures for organizational and intermediate maintenance levels? What volume of the NAMP outlines the Main- tenance Data System (MDS)? AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Describe the organizational structure of aircraft mainte- nance activities. In most operating aircraft units or activities, the aircraft maintenance department is the largest department. Its primary efforts are to support the unit’s mission of flight operations. The operations department carries out the unit’s mission. In support of the unit’s mission, the objective of the maintenance department is to maintain all unit aircraft in a state of full mission l-l
