AIRCRAFT RECORD A CARD
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Define the
purpose of the Aircraft Record "A" card.
Define the retention requirements of the
Aircraft Record "A" card. Describe the entries
documented on the Aircraft Record "A" card.
An Aircraft Record "A" card, OPNAV Form
5442/9, is maintained by reporting custodians for each
aircraft in their reporting custody. The Aircraft Record
"A" card provides custodians of naval aircraft with a
local history of assigned aircraft and a ready reference
for preparation of the Aircraft Accounting Audit
Report. The card (figs. 7-4 and 7-5) is initiated upon
receipt of the aircraft. The card is retained by the unit
for a period of 12 months following the date of strike or
transfer from the units reporting custody. A copy of
the current card should be placed in the manila
envelope in the back of the logbook whenever the
aircraft is transferred to another unit or physically
departs the unit for standard depot level maintenance
(SDLM) or special rework.
NOTE: The Aircraft Record "A" card is also
maintained in electronic form in NALCOMIS.
As you read this section, refer to figures 7-4 and
7-5. The upper portion of the front of the card contains
spaces for statistical data (which may be typed in) that
concerns the aircraft. Below this, on the left side of the
card, space is provided to record OPNAV XRAY report
data. The lower right section and the reverse side of the
card is used to record month-by-month flight and
landing data. Below is a brief description of each
section of the Aircraft Record "A" card.
