This month, officials at the Oklahoma City Academy opened its doors for ATEC Executive Director Crystal Maguire to attend its most recent aviation maintenance technician school course. The council has long-supported the training that is now required for all inspectors with part 147 certificate oversight responsibilities. The recently-established three-day course will run nine times in 2017, providing a seat for most FAA inspectors required to attend.
The training covers all aspects of the current part 147 (with reference to inspector guidance, job tasks and advisory circular 147-3), including certification requirements, curriculum review, instructor requirements, facility, equipment and materials requirement and surveillance.
The council is appreciative of the opportunity to attend and comment on the course content and looks forward to industry’s continued participation in these important sessions. Compliance is a team effort, it takes the good work of certificate holders AND regulators to ensure we continue the current trajectory of safety. Industry perspective and experience is an important piece of the puzzle.
