2.15 Rectification of Defects Arising During Base Maintenance

2.15.1 Purpose

To define NAC Engineering & Maintenance policies regarding process for rectification of
defects arising during Base Maintenance of aircraft as well as deferment of non-rectified
defects.

2.15.2 Procedure

2.15.2.1 Before any major checks, physical survey inspection of the aircraft needs to be made. This
will assess the condition of the aircraft and will facilitate the forecasting of the additional
work required and necessary ground time required so that budgeting of material, man-
hour and provisioning of tools and equipment’s can be done reasonably in order to
accomplish the additional work during the base maintenance.

2.15.2.2 Recording of defect encountered during line/ base/ shop maintenance

1) Major maintenance is defined as overhaul, major repair or extensive modification of


aircraft or aircraft components, the extensive dismantling or reassembly of them and the
manufacture of simple replacement parts in accordance with approved data. And minor
maintenance is defined as all work relating to the maintenance of the aircraft other than
major maintenance. The defect referred in this manual refers to minor maintenance as
defined above.

2) Defect noticed by the operating crew or maintenance personnel during operation or


line maintenance of the aircraft will first be recorded by the person observing the defect
as PIREP or Maintenance Entry as applicable in the Aircraft Technical Log Page (TLP).

3) Defects noticed during base / shop maintenance will be recorded in the Defect &
Rectification Sheet. Defects generated during routine inspection / servicing schedule shall
be recorded in the Technical Log Book.

2.15.2.3 Rectification of Line / Base / Shop Maintenance Defects

1) Defects noticed during operation or line maintenance first entered in Aircraft Flight
Log will be rectified by certifying staff using updated Maintenance Data.

2) Maintenance job order (MJO) raised by maintenance planning Division for the defects
found during Base/ Shop Maintenance will contain the nature of defect
reported/observed.

3) After defect rectification is completed, MJO will be closed by the certifying staff and
CRS issued with reference to MJO.

Issue: 01 Revision: 01 November 2014 Page 62


CONTINUING AIRWORTHINESS MANAGEMENT
PART 2: MAINTENANCE MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION EXPOSITION (CAMMOE)
PROCEDURES

4) Support / certifying staff rectifying the defect will enter the details of rectification
action in a rectification column of AFL.

5) Major defects noticed & rectification action taken during shop maintenance of a
component will also be reflected in the component history card so that defect history
of the component will be known to the shop maintenance staff during its next visit to
the shop.

In case, repair is not possible through solution given in maintenance data, Aircraft
Engineer concerned shall be informed to work out for viable solution in coordination
with Type Certificate holder / OEM and CAA Nepal (ref CAMMOE Chapter 2.9 for
details).

2.15.2.4 Reporting of Defects

Defects considered being hazardous to safety and airworthiness must be reported to


Quality Manager. The competent authority, Type Certificate Holder and customer /
operator shall be informed for such non-airworthy condition (Ref CAMMOE Chapter 2.18
for details).

2.15.2.5 Deferred Maintenance Procedure

NAC shall not operate aircraft with defects or unserviceable equipment unless the defect
has been recorded and rectified or deferred in accordance with the procedures contained
in this manual.

(1) MEL Procedure

Whenever defect is to be deferred, concerned maintenance personnel shall do so


only IAW Minimum Equipment List (MEL) of aircraft provided by operator. Any
defect raised, but not rectified during scheduled maintenance due to justified reason
shall be considered as deferred defect. Concerned engineer production
(Maintenance Division) shall raise ADD Form and distribute as explained in
CAMMOE Chapter 2.9.2.4 to ensure that required maintenance and operation
procedures are complied with in order to maintain the required level of safety in
presence of the defect and to secure their rectification on priority.

(2) Defect Control for the Items not included in MEL:

Usually no aircraft shall be released on ADD from Base. However, due to long
turnaround time to rectify the defect, a situation may require that the aircraft need
to be released. Provided that defect is minor or apparent and does not compromise
comfort of passenger, aircraft operation or/and airworthiness of aircraft. The
aircraft can be released to service with acceptable temporary repair of the defect
until permanent repair is carried out within the stipulated time. EPD with the help

Issue: 01 Revision: 01 November 2014 Page 63


CONTINUING AIRWORTHINESS MANAGEMENT
PART 2: MAINTENANCE MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION EXPOSITION (CAMMOE)
PROCEDURES

of ESSD shall arrange all required material / components to carry out permanent
repair within stipulated time as mentioned in ADD Form.

(3) Transfer of Acceptable Deferred Defect into Outstanding Defect (OD):

In case of any acceptable deferred defect that needs to be deferred until next heavy
maintenance or hangar visit, Engineering Planning Division shall organize a meeting
with ESSD, Manager Quality, ESTD and or where applicable maintenance contractor.
The meeting shall decide transfer of only those ADDs, which can be transferred to
Out-Standing Defect (OD). ESTD shall issue MJO to Maintenance Division to transfer
such ADDs to ODs. ESTD shall maintain a list of ODs each bearing a serial number in
a record. Serial number shall be unique and is not duplicated. These outstanding
defect (OD) shall be reported to Accountable Manager through CAMO Manager.

In case of defect requiring pro-long grounding of the aircraft, top management shall
be informed of such defect.

2.15.3 Analysis of Defect and Rectification – Human Factor – Maintenance Program Implication

A) All major defects and repetitive minor defects will be analyzed in a meeting conducted
every three months, for its cause by a team comprising of the Manager Engineering,
Line/Base Maintenance Engineer, Engineering Services and the Quality Manager.

B) Rectification action taken and preventive measures required to be followed will also be
discussed while closing the defect analysis.

C) Above meeting will be conducted on occurrence of major defect / minor repetitive defect /
receipt of any investigation report from repair agencies & before releasing the aircraft to
service. Result of such defect evaluation will be intimated through Technical circulars as
preventive measures to avoid similar defects arising on the same or other aircrafts.

D) If a Human factor is found to be the reason for the defect, a suggestion to the Accountable
Manager will be made to conduct of additional training for the concerned person and also to
persons discharging similar duties. If fatigue / over load of work are found to be the reason,
suggestion will be made to streamline the work allotment.

E) During defect analysis, if it is found that improvement to maintenance program is required


to be made by increasing the frequency of inspection schedule, then the Manager
Engineering will initiate the amendment to the Aircraft Maintenance Schedule and submit
the same through the Quality Manager for CAA Nepal approval.

maintenance task as given in maintenance manuals or other appropriate maintenance
documents, in either the content of the task or the period / frequency at which it is
scheduled to be accomplished will be applied with the consent of maintenance manager. If
such variation is applied, it is to be recorded in relevant work order or in Technical log by
certifying staff.
Process for exemption of deviation from an aircraft technical standard or maintenance
procedure shall be applied when maintenance personnel are unable to comply with a
particular requirement or to comply through method different from one prescribed in the
relevant maintenance data. In this context, it shall refer to deviation from approved
maintenance standard.

Existence of a procedure for obtaining exemption from CAA, Nepal, as prescribed in this
chapter is not a reason for applying for any change of maintenance instructions without
prior notice of the manufacturer’s instructions. Furthermore, this exemption procedure
does not allow modification of engineering design as well.

3.9.2.2 Maintenance Task Exemption Process

3.15.3.1 General

Safety Management System (SMS) is a systematic, explicit and proactive process for
managing safety that integrates operations and technical systems with financial and
human resources management to achieve safe operations with as low as reasonably
practicable risk.

In Continuing Airworthiness and Maintenance, Safety Management System works to


achieve following safety objectives: (edit the points... show how exactly they work?)

 Identifies safety hazards

 Assesses the impact of these safety hazards and mitigates the risks

 Ensures that remedial action necessary to maintain an acceptable level of safety is


implemented

 Provides for continuous monitoring and regular assessment of safety level achieved,
and

 Aims to make continuous improvement of the overall level of safety

The SMS Manual assists all departments in achieving a high standard of safety in the
organization’s work and allows QA&FS to further refine and improve corporation’s safety
program.

Note: NAC has developed a SMS manual (SMSM) which is approved by CAAN. Refer to
company SMS manual for further guidance and implementation.

3.15.3.2 Management commitment to, and responsibility for, safety risk management

NAC Managing Director has signed “Safety Policy Statement” to ensure efficacy and
efficiency of corporation’s Safety Management System. The corporation has developed
management teams for insuring that the safety responsibility is discharged through the
operation of dedicated organizational system that incorporates the necessary safety risk
controls.

For further reference and detailed description, refer SMSM 3.1.1.

PROCEDURES

3.15.3.3 Safety accountabilities of managers (senior management)

In addition to the specific responsibilities for the operation of the department/functional


unit, senior management or key corporation personnel have safety accountabilities and
responsibilities.

For accountabilities and responsibilities of senior management personnel, refer to SMSM


3.3.

3.15.3.4 Key personnel

Key management personnel who are responsible for implementation of safety


management system in their respective departments/functional units are identified.

3.15.3.5 SMS implementation Plan

NAC has already implemented SMS system throughout the organization. SMS has been
implemented on phase-wise basis. SMS has been effective from date.

For detailed phase-wise description, refer SMSM 8.

3.15.3.6 Emergency response plan

NAC has developed and maintained a common system for the management of emergency
response/contingency plan. NAC has developed an Emergency Response and Crisis
Management Manual (ERCMM) to provide common system in the management of
emergencies and crisis. This manual specifies the procedure to be carried out in case of
any emergency situation and roles and responsibilities of Nepal Airlines Emergency
Response Team, security, chief Team, Security, Chief Station Manager and other officials in
each emergency situation.

The objectives of the developed emergency response plan are:

PROCEDURES

 Safe continuation of operations or return to normal operations as soon as possible.

 Proactive identification of all possible emergency events/ scenarios and their


corresponding mitigation actions.

 Planned and coordinated actions to ensure the risks attributable to a major safety
event can be managed and minimized.

 Compliance with relevant local, national and international law.

 Cooperation with local, regional, national authorities, agencies.

 Care for victims, family members and staff involved with the emergency.

 Compliance of Policy Statement from the Managing Director.

For detailed information, refer ERCMM.

3.15.3.7 Safety Risk Management

a) Hazard Identification

Risks cannot be totally eliminated and the implementation of risk management process is
critical to an effective safety management program. Hazard identification is part of the
risk management process. Hazard identification is the first step in safety management
process and it includes collecting, recording, acting on and generating feedback about
hazards and safety risks in operations and maintenance.

NAC’s hazard identification processes are based on combination of reactive, proactive and
predictive methods of safety data collection through investigation of incidents and
accidents, voluntary and mandatory reporting systems, safety audits, safety surveys, and
safety data capture system. The hazard identification process takes place with non-
punitive and just safety culture within the organization. Following are some examples of
hazards:

 Operations: Unfamiliar phraseology, inclement weather, birds in take-off path,


heavy traffic, unfamiliar airports, high terrain around airport, new on-board
equipment, cabin configuration, Flight Time Limitations (FTL), recurring defects,
etc.

Issue: 01 Revision: 04 December 2015 Page 53


CONTINUING AIRWORTHINESS MANAGEMENT
PART 3: QUALITY SYSTEM MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION EXPOSITION (CAMMOE)
PROCEDURES

 Aircraft/Workshop Maintenance: Fuel vapor from open wing tanks, discrepant


test equipment, ambiguous work instructions improper shift handover procedure,
inadequate training/ resources/ capabilities, improper material/ equipment
handling, etc.

For more detailed process of hazard identification and risk management, refer SMSM 4.4.

b) Safety Risk Assessment and Mitigation

The risk assessment determines the level of risk based on two factors - the probability of
the occurrence and the severity of the consequences. The more severe the consequences
of an accident the probability of its occurrence must be lowered for the risk to be
acceptable. Conversely, accidents whose consequences are less severe and likelihood of
occurrence is higher may be acceptable. Using this concept as a baseline, design limits are
defined.

Risk mitigation is the process of implementing actions of defenses to eliminate or reduce


the probability or severity of risks associated with hazards. The basic defenses employed
in our organization are technology, training and procedures. Three basic strategies for
safety risk control/mitigation are applied which are: Avoidance, Reduction and
Segregation of Exposure.

For detailed safety risk assessment and mitigation process and strategies, refer SMSM 4.5
and SMSM 4.6.

3.15.3.8 Safety Assurance

Safety assurance provides the confidence of performance and effectiveness of SMS. The
organization monitors, measures and evaluates the effectiveness of SMS through formal
safety review process.

The organization frequently experiences temporary and permanent changes due to


expansion, contraction, changes to existing systems, equipment, programs, products and
services and introduction of new equipment or procedures. Hazards may inadvertently be
introduced into an operation whenever such changes occur. Whenever there are any such
changes, the safety manager with the help of Safety Action Group shall identify new
hazards, assess the impacts of changes and develop safety risk mitigation strategies.

For detailed safety assurance procedure, refer SMSM Chapter 5.

CONTINUING AIRWORTHINESS MANAGEMENT
PART 6: CONTINUING AIRWORTHINESS MAINTENANCE ORGANISATION EXPOSITION (CAMMOE)
MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES

Any changes to the Technical Log will be submitted to Civil Aviation Authority Nepal for
approval prior to being put into use. In the event that unscheduled maintenance and/or
defect rectification is required to be carried out away from main base, by another Part 145
approved maintenance organisation, the prior agreement of the primary maintenance
contractor must be sought. The organisation carrying out such maintenance will be
required to issue a Certificate of Release to Service in the Technical Log.
NAC will ensure that copies of all Technical Log Pages, and any other pertinent
maintenance-related information, are forwarded promptly to the maintenance contractor,
to allow them to perform their planning and maintenance co-ordination functions.
6.1.2 MEL Application
Nepal Airlines Corporation Minimum Equipment List (MEL) represents a list that provides
for the operation of an aircraft, subject to specified conditions, with particular equipment
inoperative, prepared by EST Division, coordination with Operation Department NAC, and
approved by CAAN, in conformity with, or more restrictive than, the MMEL established for
the aircraft type. MEL shall be updated in line with latest MMEL by Engineering Services
and Training Division (ESTD).
MEL also includes operating conditions for defective RVSM related equipment, CAT II, CAT
III operation equipment and R-NAV related equipment as applicable.
6.1.2.1 MEL Procedure
When a defect has been raised in 'Defects' column of the Aircraft Technical Log and if it is
deemed to be within the allowance quoted in the MEL then it may be subjected to carry
forward action.
The entry in the 'Action Taken' column of the TLP will be annotated 'Defect carried forward
in accordance with the MEL reference number and ADD Number made by the operating
crew or maintenance personnel. The ADD record pages must be suitably annotated with
details of the defect and a time limit must be specified (date and time or remaining flight
hours and/or cycles).
6.1.2.2 Acceptance by the Pilot
Pilot –in-command & certifying staff must ensure that no aircraft is dispatched or flown
with multiple MEL items without determining inter-relationship between inoperative
systems or components will not result in degradation on specified level of safety and/ or
increase in crew work load. The decision to accept the carried forward item allowed by the
MEL remains the responsibility of the pilot-in-command. This acceptance of any open
deferred items is indicated by his/her signature on the Aircraft Flight Log in the block
marked “CAPT’S ACCEPTANCE SIGN.”

6.1.2.3 Management of the MEL Rectification Intervals (RI’s)


The time limit for the defect rectification or “rectification interval” is specified in the MEL in
Flight Hours/Cycles/Calendar Time (A, B, C or D) so that the defect rectification may be
performed before the specified MEL limit.

9.4 Physical Survey

The Physical survey of the aircraft will be under taken prior to annual C of A renewal test
flight. The survey will be carried out as per Survey Inspection Form and will include:

• All required markings and placards are properly installed


• The aircraft complies with its approved flight manual
• All the documents in the essential documents folder are up to date
• The aircraft configuration complies with the approved documentation,
• There are no evident defects that have not been deferred correctly
• There are no discrepancies between the aircraft and the document review.

The physical survey may require maintenance actions, i.e. removal of panels or operational
tests. So if the review staff is not appropriately authorized on the type of aircraft a type
rated licensed engineer is to be used to assist with the survey. Any defects
from the physical survey are to be raised by the authorized engineer in the aircraft
Technical log.
