equipment (fig. 6-20). The SEATS computer generated
Seat Survival Kit record is a single-sided record
designed to be filed in the aircraft logbook or the
ejection seat AESR in which the SSK is installed.
The activity that places the SSK into service should
initiate the SSK record. When the SSK is issued to a
custodian, the receiving activity should verify the
completeness and accuracy of the record, and resolve
any discrepancies with the issuing activity prior to
acceptance of the SSK. Once an SSK is installed, the
SSK record should be forwarded to maintenance
control for insertion into the aircraft logbook or
ejection seat AESR. When an SSK is transferred, its
SSK record should be attached to the equipment and
should accompany the SSK to its new destination.
Aircrew Systems Record (OPNAV 4790/138)
The Aircrew Systems Record, figure 6-21,
provides a continuous configuration and inspection
history of ALSS components, kits, and assemblies. The
SEATS computer-generated Aircrew Systems Record
should be filed in the logbook of the aircraft in which
the component, kit, or assembly is installed.
The Aircrew Systems Record should be initiated by
the activity placing the component, kit, or assembly
into service. When a new record is initiated, applicable
data is transcribed to a new record and verified and the
old record is either retained or destroyed in accordance
with command directives. Accepting activities should
review and verify aircrew systems records for
completeness and accuracy. Any discrepancies found
by the accepting activity should be resolved with the
issuing activity prior to acceptance. When the
component, kit, or assembly is installed, the record
should be forwarded to maintenance control for
insertion into the aircraft logbook. The Aircrew System
Record should accompany the component, kit, or
assembly whenever these components are sent to an
I-level activity for inspection or maintenance and when
the component, kit, or assembly is transferred to a new
Aircrew Personal Equipment Record (OPNAV
This record, shown in figure 6-22, provides a
record of the current configuration of all personal
equipment issued to aircrewrnen. Only items of ALSS
that require inspection at the O-level of maintenance
should be documented on this record. All item of ALSS
requiring I-level maintenance should have a separate
Aircrew Systems Record.
The Aircrew Personal Equipment Record should
be initiated by an O-level activity upon initial issue of
personal equipment to the aviator or aircrewman. Each
aviator or aircrewman should have a separate file
containing the Aircrew Personal Equipment Record
and separate Air Systems Records as necessary.
Maintenance actions performed on an aircrewmans
equipment should be documented on the MAF. The
Aircrew Personal Equipment Record must be retained
for a minimum of 6 months or one complete inspection
cycle, whichever is greater.
Q25. Upon installion of a parachute assembly, what is
the disposition of the parachute record?
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Define the
purpose of the aircraft inventory record.
Identify procedures to record equipment
shortages when aircraft are transferred or
The aircraft inventory records are part of the com-
plete packet of the logs and records maintained on each
aircraft. To record aircraft inventory data accurately
and properly, you, the AZ, should have a knowledge of
their general content and use. Normally, material
control work center personnel supervise and coordinate
(in conjunction with production division personnel) the
inventory of aircraft upon acceptance and transfer.
The aircraft inventory record establishes a formal,
continuous chain of accountability for specific
equipment and material installed on or designated for
use on any aircraft of a specified type, model, and series
(T/M/S). A Master Aircraft Inventory Record (MAIR)
that identifies those items of installed and loose
equipment for which a periodic inventory must be
accomplished is maintained by NAVAIR. A MAIR is
maintained as the standard for each T/M/S aircraft.
Aircraft are transferred and accepted only after an
equipment and item inventory and notation on the
forms of the aircraft inventory record are completed.
This inventory record is NOT to be considered a
packing list, bill of materials, or configuration list.
Selection of items to be included in the inventory
record is governed by the following list, without regard
to whether the items are government- or
