AERONAUTICAL EQUIPMENT SERVICE RECORD
Aircraft maintenance activities are also tasked with
the responsibility of maintaining aeronautical equip-
ment service record (AESR). Currently, organizational
and intermediate level maintenance activities maintain
AESRs in paper format as well as electronic format
found in the Naval Aviation Logistics Command
Management Information System (NALCOMIS).
SERVICE RECORD (AESR)
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Define the pur-
pose of the Aeronautical Equipment Service
The Aeronautical Equipment Service Record
(AESR) is the log used to maintain records on
aeronautical equipment that are an integral part of the
aircraft. The AESR is a loose-leaf log that is contained
within a separate cover. The log can be inserted in the
aircraft logbook binder, or the log may stand alone.
The AESR is maintained in much the same manner
as the aircraft logbook. Many of the records used in the
aircraft logbook are also used in the AESR. In this
chapter, we will discuss records common to the aircraft
logbook and AESR, but we will focus more on records
unique to the AESR.
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Identify the
activity that originates AESRs.
The AESR is initiated by the activity that originally
accepted the equipment for the Navy, and the AESR is
subsequently maintained by the activity that has
custody of the equipment. When equipment is
installed as part of the aircraft, the AESR is maintained
concurrently with the aircraft logbook, and the record
becomes a part of the logbook.
Q1. What log is used to maintain records on the
aeronautical equipment that is an integral part of
Q2. What activity initiates the AESR?
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Identify equip-
ment that requires an AESR.
An AESR is required for each of the specific
equipments listed below:
Aircraft power plants (engines)
Auxiliary power unit (APU)
Airborne gun pods
Low-level escape system
In-flight refueling store/package
Aeronautical Expeditionary Airfield M-11,
M-22, M-23, V-1, V-7, and L series lighting
Gas Turbine Power Plant (7LM 1500 PB-104)
Engine test cell/stand
MK-105 magnetic minesweeping gear
Support equipment gas turbine engines (GTEs)
NOTE: Each aircraft has specific AESR
equipment requirements. The periodic maintenance
information card (PMIC) deck for the specific type,
model, and series of equipment contains AESR
equipment requirements. In case of loss, damage, or
destruction of an AESR, follow the same re-
construction procedures as those used for an aircraft
MAINTAINING THE AESR
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Describe the
disposition procedures for AESR data that has
no designated place in the AESR.
The AESR is maintained similarly to the aircraft
logbook. Since the AESR is in loose-leaf form, the full
