  • Quality Assurance Staff

What Does EASA Part CAMO Require?

AMC4 CAMO.A.305(g) Personnel requirements include the following:

  • Personnel involved in developing and amending/reviewing the AMP, in assessing its effectiveness and/or working on reliability programme, should have knowledge of the applicable methodology used in developing, as part of the instructions for continuing airworthiness (ICA), the manufacturer recommended maintenance programme (such as maintenance steering group logic).

Let’s Look at the Maintenance Philosophy

Incidentally, the two main reasons we have an MSG-3 Maintenance Program could be described as to deliver both “Safety & Economic Advantage”.

The Role of Maintenance Planning is to provide:

  • potential for significant financial & operational savings
  • a fully compliant maintenance management system
  • a safety-focused maintenance management system

Consider the OPERATOR perspective

  • Operators are continuously under pressure to improve their punctuality.
  • Eventually, all mechanical components or equipment will fail.
  • The whole purpose then of maintenance is not only to recognize this fact but to cope with it in the most effective way.
  • Safety and reliable service with on-time departures is a part of the passenger expectation. The on-time performance of an operator’s schedule is a key factor.

Who is the course for?

All personnel with duties and/or responsibilities in ensuring effective oversight of the Airline Planning environment and Aircraft Maintenance Program. Competent Authority (CA) Quality Assurance Staff. Also of Interest to persons working in a CAMO or Part M Quality System. Technical Managers & Lease Companies.

What is the Benefit of this Training – What will I learn?

a) At the end of this Training the delegate should have a comprehensive understanding of the Roles and responsibilities associated with the development of the Aircraft Maintenance Program (AMP).

b) To be able to effectively assess both the regulatory compliance and suitability of operators’ Maintenance Programmes.

c) Achieve a solid understanding related to Subpart G Continued Airworthiness Management (CAM) and the Continuing Airworthiness Organisation (CAMO) management of the AMP.

d) Be able to use the regulation to proactively manage the oversight of regulatory compliance related to the AMP and its control processes.

e) Understand the activities which support the analysis of Safety Data including SB’s and AD’s.

f) Understand the impact of the various elements on the AMP with the ability to assess exposure and viability and identify potential weaknesses within the system.

At Sofema Aviation Services our focus is on accepting that compliance with Regulations is in fact minimum compliance. Interpreting the regulations in a way which enables the development and optimisation of our business is where we should see an opportunity to drive efficiencies and cost-saving.
