AC No. 43.13.1B  - Techniques and Practices – Aircraft Inspection and Repair

 

The FAA published an advisory circular No. 43.13.1B (Change 1) entitled Techniques and Practices – Aircraft Inspection and Repair.

 

The stated purpose of the document is, This advisory circular (AC) contains methods, techniques, and practices acceptable to the Administrator for the inspection and repair of nonpressurized areas of civil aircraft, only when there are no manufacturer repair or maintenance instructions. This data generally pertains to minor repairs. The repairs identified in this AC may only be used as a basis for FAA approval for major repairs. The repair data may also be used as approved data, and the AC chapter, page, and paragraph listed in block 8 of FAA form 337 when:

a. the user has determined that it is appropriate to the product being repaired;

b. it is directly applicable to the repair being made; and

c. it is not contrary to manufacturer’s data.

 

It is an extremely useful document and I’ve placed it on a separate server, as the 8KCAB server is nearly full. Hopefully the traffic will be bearable.

 

The contents of the document are listed here to give you a flavor of the vast amount of information in it.
