For aircraft that have received overhauled landing gears from Landing Gear Technologies, registered as TF-ISS, TF-FIA, TF-ISY and D4-CCG, inspect the landing gears and the landing gears records as follows:

Inspect the landing gears. If the landing gears contain fastening component and a mating part of painted yellow color, then inspect the landing gear overhaul records to verify that the parts have been undersized.

If the landing gear overhaul records indicate that the parts have been undersized by Landing Gear Technologies, jack up the airplane per the Aircraft Maintenance Manual instructions, disassemble the undersized parts and measure the threaded portion of the undersized parts to verify that their sizes are mating and per the relevant Component Maintenance Manual (CMM) for undersize parts.

If, the undersized parts sizes are as required per the CMM, re-assemble per the relevant CMM instructions. Otherwise take the necessary maintenance action to replace with the required parts.

Afgreiðsla

Training for maintenance personnel has been reviewed. Initial training for employees will include overview of privileges as well as limitations set forth for Mechanics and Technicians in CAME and regulations.

Procedures in CAME have been reviewed with this in mind, and CAME 2.10 and roles and responsibilities in 1.4 have been updated in rev. 50 with a clear definition of the different limitations. The line between Mechanic and Technician has been made clear to make sure every employee knows their limitations.

List 1.6.0 Company Staff and Authorization list will be re-issued to include all maintenance personnel and certifying staff will be re-issued to include all employees with limitations and privileges presented to make it clearer. E.g. currently the list does not contain Non Part-66 Mechanics, Airworthiness Review Staff and office personnel. In next revision this will all be added to the same list to have a clear overview for all personnel.

Training Material will be distributed to all personnel when CAME revision 50 has been accepted by ICETRA, with a special focus on Mechanics and Technicians.

The ITSB recommends to EASA to:

Require a spin test for VLA aircraft that goes through a major change, such as for MTOW, even though the C.G. excursion is the same.

Afgreiðsla

An EASA letter dated 19.02.2020 states that EASA has closed the safety recommendation with disagreement.

The Agency has carefully assessed the proposed recommendation, taking into account the justification provided. However, in line with paragraph 21.A.91 of Commission Regulation (EU) N748/2012 (as amended) and the applicable Certification Specifications, a spin test is only required for major changes which are assessed by the applicant and accepted by EASA as having an impact on the spin characteristics as established under the original type certification basis. This applies regardless of the aircraft type-certification basis (e.g. CS-LSA, CS-VLA and CS-23).

For this reason, the mandatory requirement of a spin test for a major changes is not found feasible.
