Aircraft logbooks: they’re usually found in paper form; in many cases are full of hand-written entries; are put together in various formats, shapes, and sizes; are often falling apart due to wear and tear; are typically unorganized and chaotic; are difficult to understand; and are often times missing critical information altogether. But this shouldn’t be the case. One easy way to overcome many of these limitations is to scan the original paper records; put them into a usable and understandable electronic format (in compliance with the FAA’s guidance on electronic recordkeeping); make them searchable with an electronic search engine; and have them to use and have as a back-up for the life of the aircraft. Or, even better, create an Electronic Record Keeping System for the aircraft and maintain this electronic record properly to avoid the many pitfalls encountered today with aircraft records.
The objective of this course is to get a better understanding of what is involved in developing an electronic back-up for an existing paper record or moving into a new Electronic Record Keeping System for your aircraft. What the FAA’s position is on Electronic Record Keeping; Electronic Signatures; and how an FAA sanctioned electronic records back-up can be used to replace a missing or damaged paper record when the need arises.
This course will benefit A&P Technicians and Students, Repair Station Technicians, Repairmen, and anyone needing a better understanding of electronic aircraft records or are contemplating establishing an Electronic Record Keeping System for their aircraft’s maintenance record.
