The FAA today published an Announcement in the Federal Register for a proposed AC 145-RSTP relating to Part 145 Repair Station Training Programs. The AC is only a draft and, even if it becomes a final published AC, repair stations would not be required to follow it. The draft AC merely “provides an acceptable means, but not the only means, for developing a repair station employee training program for repair stations certificated under part 145” and “[T]he sample programs only represent a possible way to structure a training program that meets the requirements of the regulations.”
Comments to this draft AC are due no later than January 21, 2005 and should be sent to Mr. Herbert E. Daniel, Aircraft Maintenance Division, General Aviation and Repair Station Branch (AFS-340), Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Ave., SW., Washington, DC 20591; facsimile (202) 267-5115; e-mail Herbert.E.Daniel@faa.gov.
For more information you should review proposed AC 145-RSTP in detail, or you can contact Mr. Herbert E. Daniel, AFS-340, at the address, facsimile, or e-mail listed above, or by telephone at (202) 267-3109; or Mr. Dan Bachelder, AFS-340, at the address or facsimile listed above or e-mail Dan.Bachelder@faa.gov or by telephone at (202) 267-7027.
