...those issues would not have been an concern in the OM category...
Can you say what kind of issues those were? I'm curious what would ground a Certified aircraft that wouldn't ground an O-M aircraft.

Re: Owner Maintenance

Yes, a bilingual message is required by both doors. The label need not be ugly, either. I designed one for my father's Cessna 150 when he moved it to O-M, it looks nice and clean on the side panel behind the door handle. On some aircraft the door frame is wide enough to place the label, and that ha...

Re: Paperless Digital Maintenance Tracking program

That's not a lawful way of keeping technical records for an aircraft with a standard certificate of airworthiness. This thread isn't really about OM, experimental or amateur-built aircraft. No? I pointed out a while back that I was in the Amateur-Built camp. I didn't think it mattered, doesn't the ...

Re: Paperless Digital Maintenance Tracking program

You don't have to (and arguably shouldn't) carry maintenance logs with you at all, ever. You do have to carry the Journey Log (one volume) though. Scans of paper records are great online backups. I use a combined Journey/Maintenance log, so if one comes along, they both do. Which brings up an inter...

Re: Paperless Digital Maintenance Tracking program

Why tho? If you're a private operator then you don't have a need to digitize your logs, you'd save very little paper and would spend more in basic digital backup services then an old paper log. For the same reasons a commercial operator might want to digitize. Having a backup. Not having to carry a...

Okay. Yeah not sure. I'd have to call TC to find out if that's even possible anymore. Crazy if it is. Why is it crazy? There are many ways to learn the material. Why does it *need* to be in a classroom? Lol. I think you misunderstood what I meant by "Crazy". Not crazy as in bad, just craz...

Re: Paperless Digital Maintenance Tracking program

One other over-riding consideration here, perhaps... I wasn't thinking about Commercial operations here. I was thinking about private owners. I've got an amateur-built myself, that allows much more flexibility, but I still think a private operator could easily maintain a digital maintenance log with...

I logged the time spent studying, and showed the log to the instructor. He was okay with it. Keep in mind this was in 1998.

Doesn't everyone use the "Active Topics" link? Shows new posts in all threads, in date order, regardless of which forum they're posted in. If nobody is answering posts in the rotary forum, it's probably because there aren't many rotary pilots around to answer them. http://www.avcanada.ca/...

Re: Paperless Digital Maintenance Tracking program

Signatures can be forged, but this is not a discussion about the weaknesses of paper record keeping. It's a discussion about the weaknesses of electronic record keeping. Po-tay-to, po-tah-to. I'd say it's a discussion about replacing the functionality of a paper-based system with an electronic one,...
