FAA / FSDO-25 and PAMA Teterboro Chapter IA Refresher / Renewal


March 10, 2012

Your local FAA/FSDO-25 Office and The Teterboro Chapter of PAMA (Professional Aircraft Maintenance
Association) have joined efforts once again and with the help of our Good Friends at:

  • CAE SimuFlite
  • API
  • Standard Aero
  • Any vendors interested in having a table for the Mini Trade Show or donating Door Prizes should contact: Neil at 973-227-5750

We have put together a program that will cover topics of interest to both the reciprocating and turbine Mechanic / IA. There will be a Mini Trade Show through out the day and during the lunch break. This Refresher/Renewal meets the requirements of FAR 65.93 (a) (4) for IA renewal. There will be NO other renewal meeting other than this being held in the area by the FAA.

A&P Plastic Licenses mandated by March 2013

This was passed along by Bill Bauer of Dassault Falcon Technical Support :

I just returned from an AMT meeting in Houston and thought I would send out this reminder concerning A&P licenses and Pilot licenses… I was reminded of this by the local FAA… so in case you have not already done so…

Certified airframe and powerplant mechanics are required to upgrade to a new “plastic” certificate or lose their A&P privileges. The regulation went into effect on March 31 last year with little fanfare, leaving most mechanics in the dark. An FAA spokesman said, “Except for temporary certificates issued under §65.13, the holder of a paper certificate may not exercise the privileges of that certificate after March 31, 2013.” Application can be made at the FAA’s registry Web site for a $2.00 fee. Stay in touch with your FAAST Representative, FSDO or ASI for the most current information.

FAA seeks to Restrict A&P Recognition – Deadline Extended

The FAA has issued a policy which is intended to clarify the definition of ”Actively Engaged” for purposes of issuing and renewing the A & P Inspector Authorization.

This FAA action proposes to clarify the term ”actively engaged” for the purposes of application for and renewal of an inspection authorization, as contained in Flight Standards Management System Order 8900.1.
