TCDs – Type Certificate Data Sheets

Need to review a TCD sheet?  It’s a good idea to look over them occasionally, as they’re updated when the TCD Holder changes.

The easiest method to look for TCDS documents is to do the following search from the Dashboard.

1. Click on the menu bar link “AD & TCD Search” located on the left side of the Member Dashboard.

Select either Airframe, Engine, or Propeller AD & TCD (We’re using a Lycoming Engine for the example here):

2. Type the word “Lycoming” into the Manufacturer field and click “Search“:

3. The results shown below for that search will provide all of the Lycoming engine models, along with their accompanying TCD Sheet.  *Type a keyword or model extension in the Filter Search field to get more specific results.

4. Click on the applicable TCDs number you want to read:

You can follow these same steps above for Airframe and Propeller TCDs too.

If you have an Aircraft Profile, the TCDs (for Airframe only, at this time) are shown just under the “Hours” field in the Aircraft Information section.  (We’re using a Cessna 172A for this example):

Another place you can view the TCDs are in an AD Report. Here you can view the TCDs for Airframe, Engine(s) and Propeller(s):

If you already know the TCD number you’re looking for, you can run a DIRECT search from the Dashboard.

1. Click on the menu bar link “AD & TCD Search” located on the left side of the Member Dashboard.  Then click the TCDS link:

This takes you to the list of ALL TCDs.

*Type the TCD number into the Filter Search field to get specific results.

Click on the TCD number you want to view:

This is what an actual TCD looks like.  From here you can Print, or download/save it to your computer:

Link Old Reports & Forms to a New Aircraft Profile

Did you make Reports and Forms a long time ago, before having an Aircraft Profile made?  If so, you can easily LINK those old Reports and Forms to a new Aircraft Profile:

1) If you haven’t done so already, make a New Aircraft Profile:

Create a NEW Aircraft Profile

2) Once you have the Aircraft Profile made, start linking existing Reports and Forms to the Profile:

Scroll to the section of the Profile you want to link an old Report or Form to.

*The “linking factor” is the N-Number, so you’ll want to make sure that anything you want to link has a matching N-number. 

For this example, scroll to the WORK ORDERS section, then click the LINK WORK ORDER button:

Review the possible links, then click the LINK WORK ORDER button for each Work Order you want to add to the Aircraft Profile:

You will now see the newly linked Work Orders  listed within the Aircraft Profile:

Repeat these same steps for each section you want to add Reports or Forms to such as:

      • AD Compliance Reports
      • Logbook Service Records
      • Weigh Forms
      • 337
      • Instructions for Continued Airworthiness
      • Service Invoices

Mac Safari Logbook Print Issue

Are you a Mac Safari user, having print trouble with Logbook Entries?

Below are a few examples of how the Logbook can look on screen:

This can be due to communication issues between the PDF, and Safari’s  screen display.  However, there is a quick fix:

1) Hover your mouse over the bottom center of your screen, to bring up the Print action controls.

2) Select the Ink Well icon:

3) This will open the PDF in your Mac’s PDF viewer, where you can successfully Print from there:

There is another solution that seems to work for some people but not others, likely due to OS and Safari versions:

Hit Command + P on your keyboard:

Select Landscape Orientation, and click Print:

Your Logbook entry should print normally:

If this still does not work, we’d recommend using a different browser, such as FireFox:  https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
