Proposed Advisory Circular 120-YY, “Aircraft Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems Training Program”, 58563 [05-19410]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 193 / Thursday, October 6, 2005 / Notices formed an Aging Nonstructural Systems study team. This team, led by the Transport Airplane Directorate (TAD), conducted an inspection of systems in several aging airplanes. It then met with FAA principal maintenance inspectors (PMI) tasked with oversight of major air carriers to evaluate the need for additional work in addressing the commission’s concerns. The team concluded that additional work was warranted and that industry involvement in this work was essential. The elements of the Aging Nonstructural Systems Plan were grouped into five major tasks. One task was to define standards for a simplified chapter 20, commonly referred to as the standard wiring practices manual (SWPM), of manufacturers’ airplane maintenance manuals, and to define a process for training development based on the airline’s customized chapter 20. This task was assigned to industryrepresented Task 4 Working Group. The tasking statement assigned to the Task 4 Working Group also required the group to consider ‘‘simplification’’ of chapter 20 of wiring diagram manuals (WDM). The working group concluded that simplification of the chapter 20 SWPM by end users was not appropriate for several reasons: 1. It would not be practical, because end-users do not have access to the source data. 2. It would result in different standards from one end-user to another. 3. End-users would need the details for inspection, maintenance, and repair that are currently in the manufacturer’s SWPM. At the conclusion of Aging Transport Non-Structural Systems Plan Phase I, the Task 4 Working Group stated that the current presentation and arrangement of standard wiring practices make it difficult for an aircraft maintenance technician to locate and extract pertinent and applicable data necessary to effect satisfactory electrical repairs. Subsequent tasks assigned to the Standard Wire Practice Manual Harmonization Working Group required the development of a standardized SWPM format and a definition of the minimum content to be included in an SWPM. This guidance presents one means, but not the only means, of complying with the part 25 revisions proposed in Notice No. 05–08, entitled ‘‘Enhanced Airworthiness Program for Airplane Systems/Fuel Tank Safety (EAPAS/ FTS),’’ published in this same edition of the Federal Register. Issuance of AC 25– YY is contingent on final adoption of the proposed revisions to part 25. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:45 Oct 05, 2005 Jkt 208001 58563 Issued in Washington, DC, on September 22, 2005.
