The cost of an annual inspection can be reduced by as much as half if the owner/pilot of the aircraft is willing to help with the preventative maintenance while being supervised by a certified repairman. This allows the owner/pilot to learn how to properly perform these tasks on their aircraft.
Aeromech will provide all the tools needed to perform the preventative maintenance. A maintenance logbook showing all the work the owner/pilot performs under supervision will also be provided. This now legally allows the owner/pilot to perform these same tasks with confidence and without paying the $75.00-$90.00 per hour shop rates.
Under FAR 43.13 (a) mechanics, repairmen and pilots are all held to the same standards when performing maintenance. The owner/pilot will need to follow the same guidelines as mechanics and repairmen as explained in FAR 65.83 to stay current. This allows the owner/pilot to continue to perform the same preventative maintenance tasks.
With this apprenticeship program, Aeromech wants to be able to provide some financial relief to the aircraft owners/pilots as well as educate them about their aircraft and how important it is to keep it properly maintained.
