Usher Aviation provides Subpart G Continuing Airworthiness Management FREE of charge to all customers who attend our company for all their aircraft maintenance requirements.
Under EC Regulation 2042/2003 aircraft are issued with an EASA non expiring Certificate of Airworthiness which are validated by an Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC). The ARC is valid for one year and may be extended twice for a one year period before it must be reissued.
To ensure the continued airworthiness of an aircraft an airworthiness review must be carried out periodically. This airworthiness review includes a review of technical documentation and the physical survey of the aircraft.
When an aircraft is continuously managed and maintained by an organisation approved in accordance with Part M Subpart G, this activity is carried out by a Subpart G organisation without the intervention of the IAA.
When an aircraft is not managed by the same organisation the ARC is issued by the IAA based on a recommendation from an approved Subpart G organisation.
It is possible for a Subpart G organisation to issue an ARC for an aircraft only if the aircraft is in a “controlled environment”.
An aircraft is in a controlled environment only if it has been contracted to the same Subpart G approved organisation for a 12 month period and all maintenance within that period has been carried out by approved organisations.
