How to PRINT an AD Report

My AD Reports are not printing right, what is going on?  

The quick answer:  Do not use your browser’s print function! 

Instead, use the “Print Layout Options” from within your AD Report.  Here’s the details:

1. Open an AD Report. 

2. On the left side of your screen, click on “Print Layout Options“.  

3. Choose the style you prefer, there are plenty to choose from, but the “Dynamic” style is the best option.

4. When the page appears, depending on your browser, you may see a small printer icon towards the top of the page.  If not, try hovering your mouse towards the bottom center of the page, and the download or print icon may appear.  Each browser displays the print tools differently.

If you still don’t see a print icon, you can try going up to File > Print.

  • B.  Also on the Member Dashboard, you will see a list of your AD Reports in the center of the screen.  Click on the Report you want to access, or:
  • C. Click on My AD Compliance Reports for a complete list of AD Reports.

Once you’ve opened the old Report, go the left panel and click Report Options.  From there, choose Update with New ADs.

If there are any new ADs that have been issued since the original Report date, a list of applicable ADs for that airframe, engine(s), propeller(s) and all appliances will be shown.

If you want all the ADs in the list to be added to your report, simply click the “Update My Report” button.

If you want to remove some ADs, uncheck the boxes next to the AD number, then click the “Update My Report” button.

Now your new Report will have the most current ADs.  The newly added ADs will be marked with a gold star.

Note:   The “Update with New ADs” function duplicates the old Report, adds the New ADs, and stamps it with today’s date.   For historical preferences, the original old Report will stay intact, unchanged.  You can always delete the old Report if you no longer wish to retain it.
