In July of 2013 Highland Aviation Training Ltd was approved as a CAMO UK.MG.0653. With this approval we are able to provide Continuing Airworthiness Management services and Maintenance Services to owners of light aircraft on an Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC) in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
Since the advent of aviation the airworthiness of an aircraft has been confirmed in the detailed records, this was the case under CAA BCAR. In 2005 the implementation of EASA led to many changes in the way aviation is regulated in the UK.
The concept of the CAMO organisation was introduced, this is a separation for practical reasons of the management and the maintenance of the aircraft. The management of the airworthiness is the control of the log books, AD's, CAA Generic Requirements and the Manufacturers Service information.
All this information needs to be monitored managed and correctly recorded in the aircraft records. For example the Cessna 172 has approximately 300 AD's and Service Bulletins that have been issued which need assessing for applicability and then recording in the aircraft records.
The management and control of the many life limited items on the aircraft is another part of organisations responsibility. Ensuring the component is scheduled for overhaul or replaced at a time specified by the OEM and thus ensuring continued safety of the aircraft.
While the above paragraph is all about the records and documentation we are also part of the maintenance process. We are approved to draft and submit aircraft maintenance programmes to the CAA for approval. These can be bespoke programmes or a tailored LAMP.
If you would like to discuss the CAMO aspects or maintenance of your aircraft please do not hesitate to call or drop in for a coffee and we will be happy to show you our facilities.
