Introduction

As an industry, we have anticipated the need for the development of Part M, in particular, to better address the needs of the General Aviation Community for some time.

EASA has now commenced a significant transition which will see the demise of Part M Subpart G by September 2021 at the latest.

Part M Subpart G will be replaced by Part CAMO.

EASA Part M is a core element of the Continuing Airworthiness Regulation (EU No 1321/2014) which establishes the regulation involving continuing airworthiness of the aircraft, its parts and appliances as well as the organisations and personnel involved.

1. Part M is split into 2 Part ML & Part M

A long time coming Part M one size fits all was not working in the best way so EASA took the initiative and created Part M Light - EASA Part ML (Annex Vb). Part ML is a stripped down version of Part M requirements and is only applicable for private aircraft up to 2730 KGS.

Note 1 other Private Aircraft must follow Full PART M.

Steve Bentley CEO of Sofema Aviation Services (www.sassofia.com) looks at the regulatory implications of the New Part M and explains the new terms and what they mean.

Implementation Date – 24 March 2020

Following the Implementation Date - each aircraft must follow either Part-M or Part-ML standard, and any person or organization involved in continuing airworthiness must comply with Part-M, or Part-ML or both, depending on the scope of activities (related type(s) of aircraft and operation(s)).

Sofema Online (www.sofemaonline.com) considers regulatory complacencies following the introduction of the new EASA Part M requirements.

Notes Concerning Part CAMO & PART CAO

a) Part-CAMO provides requirements for Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO): compared with Part-M Subpart G organization, the main difference is the introduction of SMS principles.

b) Part-CAO provides a new set of requirements for Combined Airworthiness Organisation: such an organization may perform CAMO activities or Maintenance Organisation activities, or both, but limited to non-complex aircraft not used by a licensed air carrier.

Review the Following

Details of ageing aircraft system requirements with any specified sampling programmes (if applicable).

Details of specific structural maintenance programmes (if applicable), including but not limited to:

a. Damage Tolerance and Supplemental Structural Inspection Programmes (SSID)

SUPPLEMENTAL STRUCTURAL INSPECTION PROGRAMME (SSIP)

Increased utilisation, longer operational lives, and the high safety demands imposed on the current fleet of transport aeroplanes indicate the need for a programme to ensure a high level of structural integrity for all aeroplanes in the transport fleet.

What is EASA Part M?

Quite simply it is an approval which lets organisations manage the “Continuing Airworthiness” of aircraft types which the organisation is authorised to manage. (More on this later)

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is responsible for the regulations which govern the maintenance performed on aircraft which are used for Commercial Air Transport throughout the European Community.

Part M concerns specifically the continuing airworthiness of aircraft and aeronautical products, parts and appliances together with the approval of organizations and personnel involved in these tasks.
 
First to understand that EASA the abbreviation for European Aviation Safety Agency is the governing agency for all European regulations in the environment of Operations, Maintenance, Airports, Air Traffic Control and Air Navigation.
 
In 2002 empowered by the European Commission Regulation EC 1592/2002, EASA created European Commission Regulation EC No. 2042/2003 which together with several amendments provided us with EASA Part M of this regulation. Specifying airworthiness requirements for EU based carriers and owners of private aircraft in regard to the obligation to manage continuing airworthiness. This was further consolidated in 2014 with introduction of the updated regulation 1321/2014 which together with further amendments is current today (Jun 2016).

SofemaOnline.com presents - The Role of the EASA Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC)

Considerations to support the understanding of the role of the EASA Airworthiness Review Certificate ARC.

Applicability

Effective 29th September 2007 - All aircraft used for Commercial Air Transport have been subject to the full requirements of Part M.
ARCs are valid for 12 months. Before your ARC expires, you need to ensure that a new ARC is issued or that the current is extended in order to allow legal flight to continue.

In accordance with Part M of Regulation (EC) 1321/2014, all EASA aircraft types that qualify for an EASA Certificate of Airworthiness (CofA) are issued with a non-expiring CofA, validated annually with an Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC).

The European Commission published amendment 1056/2008 Regulation (EC) 2042/2003 on 29 October 2008. The changes in the amendment introduce new rules and new categories of aircraft that are affected by Part M.
