AD-Referenced Documents

Where to find Documents referenced in an AD, such as:  Service Bulletins or Letters, FARs, Historical ADs, etc?

When viewing an AD, the Related Documents links can be found in the left panel, under the heading “Related Links”.

RelatedLinks1

Click on the type of Document you wish to view (SB, FAR, etc), and a drop-down list will appear.  

Click on the title of the document you wish to view.  

RelatedLinks2

The document will open, for you to view, print, download and/or save to your computer.

We make great efforts to obtain all service documents that are referenced within in AD, however, that is becoming more difficult over time.

On our Service Documents page, we’ve listed the direct access points for specific manufacturers that do a fairly good job at providing the Bulletins and Letters for FREE.  It may take a bit of clicking around, but they are available.  Please go to our Service Documents page to view the list of Manufacturers.

RELATED TOPICS:

If you wish to search directly for Service Documents when not directly viewing an AD, you can search for them from the Member Dashboard.  Here’s how:

Service Documents (SBs, ASBs, MSBs, etc)

If you wish to search directly for Service Documents such as:  Service Bulletins (SBs), Alert Service Bulletins (ASBs), Mandatory Service Bulletins (MSBs), etc when not directly viewing an AD, you can search for them from the Member Dashboard.

From the left panel, click on Service Documents, then choose to search by:  Manufacturer or Document Number, by Aircraft, or by AD.  

And remember… when searching… we like to say “less is more”, so try putting the least amount of information in the search field.   You’re more likely to get the results you need!

Creating Logbooks Entries from a Work Order

From within the Work Order, you can create either:

1. A single logbook entry containing all the Corrective Actions on one sheet, or

2. Individual logbook entries for the separate Corrective Actions.

You do so by clicking the blue “Convert to LSSR” button at the top of the Work Order (to contain all Corrective Actions), or by clicking that same button from within each individual Discrepancy (for one Corrective Action at a time).

Choose the Print Option you prefer and click the Print button.

The image below is an example of Converting the entire Work Order to a Logbook Sticker:

WOLSSR1.png

You can see how all the Corrective actions are transferred over to the Logbook Sticker:

    • Weigh Forms
    • Form 337s
    • Instructions for Continued Airworthiness
    • Work Orders
    • Service Invoices
  8. Click on the blue button labeled “+ Create Report” in the first green bar titled AD Compliance Reports. This will produce the beginning of the first AD Report.

#3 Working with the AD Compliance Report

  1. The AD Report has a section at the top with a green bar header. This section also includes the Airframe info, Tail Number, S/N, and Hours fields that you can “edit”. You can see how many ADs are found for the airframe, along with the TCD.

  8. Below the Engine Section, you should see the Appliance Information section.
    1. This section has three links, they are:
      • Select Appliances ADs (for you to select specific Appliance ADs to your report)
      • Suggested Appliance ADs (For you to select TCD Certified Appliances which already have ADs) and add them to your report if you have any of those items.
      • Manually Add Appliance Info: Use this link to add and create an appliance list to the top of your AD Report (just above the orange, red and blue colored buttons).  For instance, this link allows you to list a TCD for a Garmin device that does not yet have an AD against it, but you know it is installed on this aircraft.
  1. Select the red button to eliminate Superseded ADs from your report. Note, you will not be able to reverse that action.

#4 Enter the compliance methods in the appropriate fields for each AD.

  1. Notice the header bar for the AD Compliance section. Under the title S/N Guide column, you will find notes like: “Yes (for CD-1101)”, or “All”, or No (for CD-1101), or it may be blank. These refer to the applicability of the AD for this airframe.
  2. The AD number shows in blue. Click on the number to read the AD
  3. The Category “Airframe”, “Engine”, “Propeller”, or “Appliance” will show next.
  4. The AD Subject is next, followed by the Amendment number and then the Effective Date.
  5. On the far right, we show you the AD is either “Yes”, or “Yes*” or blank.
    • Yes signifies recurring
    • Yes* signifies the AD is recurring and has a terminating option
    • Blank signifies the AD is not recurring.

#5 Creating a Logbook Service Record (LSSR) for SMALL LOGBOOKS

  1. The LSSR is designed to allow for using an Avery 5168 or 8168 label format to use with the small format logbook. The label is 3.5” x 5”. It is also designed to fit the full 11” x 8.5” label sheets for the large logbooks or to make smaller labels that you can cut and paste.
  2. Starting the LSSR from within the Aircraft Profile will bring aircraft information to the appropriate locations on the form.
  3. Click “+Create LSSR” which will open a new page titled with “Logbook Service Record” and tell you which layout you are looking at (i.e., Avery 5168/8168 layout)
  4. Verify all the information in the fields at the top, add what is missing, and then click into the main box located under “Maintenance Release:” Notice the blue ‘bubble’.
  5. Click the blue bubble to see a saved library of “maintenance releases”. If none are showing, then you can create a new one by selecting the blue button “Add New Release”. Give it a title so you know what it is for (i.e., 100-hour Release), then click on “Save”.
  6. You can click into the main (large) field of this LSSR view and type your Maintenance Release right there. Then it will save after you click the “Save” green button on the left.
  7. Your signature line will be at the bottom of the label as seen.
  8. Click on the “Print” blue button on the left.
  9. A smaller window opens providing you with a choice of selecting which label position on the paper your LSSR will print. You have this choice so you can make use of all four labels on the sheet and not waste them. Imagine the label in landscape view to determine the layout. You may have to visualize this with the actual sheet of paper label in front of you.

#6 Creating a Logbook Service Record (LSSR) for LARGE LOGBOOKS

  1. Starting the LSSR from within the Aircraft Profile will bring aircraft information to the appropriate locations on the form.
  2. Click “+Create LSSR” which will open a new page titled with “Logbook Service Record” and show you the Avery 5168/8168 layout.
  3. Select (click) on the blue button titled “Full Page View”. This will set up the full sheet label format for you to use.
  4. Benefits to the large label include:
    1. Ability to add the company logo
    2. Ability to type much more information in the release with greater detail
    3. Rubber-banding of the signature line with the content including auto flow to a second page if required.
  5. As above in Small Logbooks, verify all the information in the fields at the top, add what is missing, and then click into the main box located under “Maintenance Release:” Notice the blue ‘bubble’.
  6. Click the blue bubble to see a saved library of “maintenance releases”. If none are showing, then you can create a new one by selecting the blue button “Add New Release”. Give it a title so you know what it is for (i.e., 100-hour Release), then click on “Save”.
  7. Your signature line can flow/move with the text of the release length to eliminate a large space or gap after the information before the signature.
  8. Click on the “Print” blue button on the left. A smaller window opens providing you with a choice “auto expand” as I described above, or “ single page which will not auto expand.
  9. Select “Print”.
  10. The window will change to the PDF Print view. Click print from your browser using the browser print command. You can also “Save as” or print to PDF on your computer.
  11. Feel free to email the LSSR to a customer in paper format.

#7 Creating a Weigh form (with CG or Revision)

  1. From the 3rd Green Bar in the Aircraft Profile, select “+ Create Weigh with CG” form.
  2. Be sure the date is correct for your form.
  3. If you started this Form from the “Aircraft Profile” the aircraft information was forwarded to this form in the appropriate fields. If not, complete the empty fields now.
  4. The Owner information should also have been imported automatically. Complete it now if not.
  5. Complete the fields in the Method of Weighing as it relates to the equipment used section.
  6. Enter the information into lines 1. thru 6 for the scale readings. Be sure to type numbers exactly, no spaces and do not use commas or decimals calculate the total weight and Moment
  7. Enter the Moment/Weight and see results in CG, and place any notes in the large field.
  8. Enter your Gross Weight, Empty weight, and AC Useful load.
  9. Sign and certify your form.

#7B. Creating a Weight & Balance Revision Form

  1. From the 3rd Green Bar in the Aircraft Profile, select “+ Create S&B REV” form.
  2. Verify the date field, aircraft information, owner information.
  3. Enter the Weight and CG Range.
  4. Enter the Data in the “As Received” section: Previous WB Date, Empty Weight, Useful Load, Empty Weight CG and Moment.
  5. In section “Revision” enter the appropriate changes of equipment/component changes, along with the Weight, Arm and Moment. You will need to include a (Minus) “-” sign if appropriate. For instance, the removal of a strobe light would be -1.70 lbs., and the removal of a Light/strobe might be -0.30 lbs. The addition of a LED Strobe/Nav Light Assembly might be 0.30 lbs.
  6. Verify the appropriate numbers in the totals section
  7. Make any “Notes” you need.
  8. Check the appropriate circle at the bottom as “As Calculated” or “As Weighed”.

#8. Creating a form 337

  1. From the 4th green bar down, in the Aircraft Profile, select “+ Create Form 337”.
  2. Verify all the appropriate information was prefilled in the form for section 1. Aircraft and 2. Owner. Correct or change the information if appropriate.
  3. Skip to section 4 and select the “Repair” or “Alteration” box.
  4. In section 5, enter the information into the fields.
  5. In section 6, complete the information in A. and B and C. Then certify under section D.
  6. In section 7, enter the appropriate information and select the proper items.
  7. No move on to Section 8, is where you place the description. Use as much space as necessary but try not to use full line spacing for visuals as it counts as a minimum of 66 characters per blank line and will cause 2nd page overflow, unless you accept that action. You cannot change the font size at this time.
  8. If a second page is required, you will need to review the document using “Print” so show the PDF View of the form. Take note of where the form data is cut off from section 8. Highlight and copy the text from a point which is above the bottom of the page leaving about ½” of space in the field.
  9. Paste that information into the “2nd page” field.
  10. Review both pages, delete the duplicated information from page one and make sure you have no missing data.
  11. You may have to work with this a few times to get the information correctly displayed on both pages. For today, this is the best option we have for completing lengthy forms.

YOU SHOULD HAVE NOW COMPLETED YOUR FIRST AIRCRAFT PROFILE, ADDED AND ASSIGNED THE OWNER TO THE AIRCRAFT AND CREATED A COMPLETE AIRCRAFT AD COMPLIANCE REPORT.
