In closing, if one of the SME happens to give you a call and asks for your help, I would be grateful if you give him or her a hand. These folks volunteered for this job and most assuredly, they will have to work on their own time to meet the established deadlines.
But their hard work will have a positive impact on industry and how the FAA will conduct business for a long time into the future. I conservatively estimate that having “approved” alterations data in the AC will alone reduce the number of field approvals by 28 percent or 36,960 man-hours the first year. It is reasonable to expect additional reductions in the neighborhood of 10 percent to 12 percent in the time spent on field approvals when more mechanics get used to the new AC policy. Once Phase IV is put in place a few years down the line, we should see an even greater reduction in the number of field approvals. The net result being all of these policy changes should keep you in bread and butter for a long time to come.
On May 21, 2003, seven months after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) made the first substantive revision to field approval policy in 20 years
Well we finished another year and are starting to take on a brand new one.
In Part 2 of my tome on field approvals, we will cover current field approval policy found in Change 16 to FAA Order 8300.10.
