Overtemp, hot start, acceptance, and transfer
inspections are all examples of (a) what type
inspections and, (b) should be logged on what
page of the AESR?
Acceptance and transfer inspections are not re-
quired to be recorded in the AESR for equipment
in what status?
What minimum number of years of data should be
maintained on the Conditional Inspection page?
Repair/Rework Record (OPNAV 4790/23A)
The Repair/Rework Record (fig. 8-4) is also
common to the aircraft logbook and AESR. This record
is a permanent part of the AESR. The Repair/Rework
Record contains a complete record of all repair,
reconditioning, SDLM, conversion, modification, and
modernization that an intermediate- or depot-level
maintenance activity performs on the equipment. In
cases where an item requires an AESR, the AESR must
accompany the equipment through the maintenance
action required and must be updated by the activity that
accomplishes the action.
Q10. An auxiliary power unit (APU) is removed from
an aircraft and sent to an AIMD for repair. What
should be the disposition of the AESR?
Technical Directives Form (OPNAV 4790/24A)
The Technical Directives form (fig. 8-5) is used to
record technical directives in the AESR. This form is
the same one that is used in the aircraft logbook.
Separate pages are used for each type of directive, and
all applicable directives are recorded. Lists 02 and 04
for engines may be available for your use; however,
these lists are NOT an authorized part of the engine
Changes and bulletins that concern equipment,
other than engines, present no special record-keeping
problems because the numerical quantity of these
directives is relatively small. Power plant changes and
power plant bulletins, however, are issued in greater
numbers. Therefore, power plant changes and power
plant bulletins require careful screening to ensure that
the AESR reflects the actual configuration of the
Definite rules and procedures are required to
ensure that the AESR contains a record of applicable
directives and, at the same time, to eliminate
unnecessary record keeping. For uniformity through-
out the system, apply the following procedures for all
Record all changes and bulletins, including
revisions, that direct a material change or modification
of the particular equipment in this section of the AESR.
Log all technical directives in numerical
sequence, except on pages titled Revisions.
Revisions are logged in the order that they are received.
All activities must account for applicable bulletins or
production equivalents by number.
Use only applicable Status codes.
Ensure that technical directives that affect a
component that has an SRC card, Equipment History
Record (EHR) card, ASR, or MSR are documented in
the applicable section of that card or record as well as
the AESR. In this instance, enter the TD identification
on the technical directive (TD) page, and enter a
notation to refer to the applicable SRC, EHR, ASR, or
MSR in the Title/Remarks column.
Record other entries in the same manner as those in
the TD section of the aircraft logbook.
Q11. Technical directives that affect an EHR, ASR,
IMSR, or SRC card item should be recorded on the
applicable EHR, ASR, MSR, or SRC card. On
what other record should an entry be made?
Miscellneous/History (OPNAV 4790/25A)
When used in the AESR, the Miscellaneous/
History record (fig. 8-6) is where pertinent information
is recorded for which no other place in the record has
been provided. For example, special test data,
abnormal characteristics of equipment, serious
damage, significant repair, authorization for extension
of operating intervals, and Naval Oil Analysis Program
entries are made on this form. When equipment is
exposed to large quantities of salt water,
fire-extinguishing agents, or other corrosive material,
an entry is made on the Miscellaneous/History record
to include a description of the decontamination and
approximate time between exposure and completion of
decontamination. All entries on this record require an
authorized signature, date, and name of the activity.
Intermediate- and depot-level maintenance
activities screen the Miscellaneous/History record
before discarding it and initiating a new record. When
the specific information is of permanent value, the
information is transcribed onto the new form and
retained in the AESR. A minimum of 2 years of data is
