ENGINE TRANSACTION REPORT
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Identify the
purpose of Engine Transaction Reports
(ETRs). Identify the deadline for submission of
ETRs. Recognize situations that require
submission of ETRs.
ETRs advise the controlling custodian of actions
that concern the use, status, or custody changes of
assigned engines. The report covers all transactions
that occurred since the previous report. A report must
be submitted not later than 2400 hours of the first
working day following the date the action occurred.
Should it become necessary to submit a late report, use
the actual Julian date of action and indicate in the
Remarks section that the report is late. Some situations
that require submission of ETRs are listed below:
The receipt or transfer of an uninstalled engine
The removal or installation of an engine
The cannibalization or strike of an engine
The delay of an engine repair due to a shortage
The receipt or transfer of an aircraft with an
There are many other situations that require an
ETR, however, those listed above are used most often.
The preparation of an ETR is a relatively simple
(but important) task. NAVAIRINST 13700.15 contains
guidelines and examples that cover almost any engine
transaction. Figure 9-1 is an example of a message-type
ETR prepared for transmission that reports four
transactions. Transaction 019 reports an engine
removed; transaction 020 reports the engine transfer.
Transactions 021 and 022 show receipt and subsequent
installation of the replacement engine.
Notice that fleet activities prepare ETRs in a
horizontal line format. Most shore activities, however,
submit ETRs electronically through the AEMS on-line
computer terminal. These terminals are connected by
telephone lines to a central computer that contains a
master list of engines and other propulsion systems.
ETRs can be directly entered into the AEMS database.
Activities with access to AEMS computer terminals
should use on-line reporting. Complete procedures for
on-line reporting are outlined in NAVAIRINST
By what means is a controlling custodian advised
of the status, use, or custody change of an
assigned aircraft engine?
What is the deadline for submission of ETRs?
Q10. A total of how many transactions are required on
an ETR that reports the removal and transfer of
an engine and the subsequent receipt and
installation of a replacement engine?
Q11. What is the preferred method of submitting ETRs
for shore-based activities?
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Describe how
ETRs are numbered. Identify data elements
and fields used on ETRs. Define retention
requirement for ETRs.
ETRs submitted by reporting custodians are
numbered sequentially throughout the calendar year
(CY) beginning with report number 1 for the first report
submitted on or after 1 January of the CY. Each
successive report increases by one number until 31
December, after which ETR numbering restarts with
report number 1 for the CY. Example: 1-96, 2-96, 3-96,
etc. On the first ETR of each year, report the last CY
