What authority governs management of O-level, I-level, and D-level aviation maintenance?
Describe the NAMP.
- Provides management tools required for efficient and economical use of personnel and material resource in performance of maintenance.
- Provides basis for establishing standard organizations, procedures, and responsibilities for accomplishment of maintenance on naval aircraft, associated material, and equipment.
What are the three levels of maintenance?
O-level, I-level, D-level
What is O-level maintenance and its mission?
- Maintenance performed by operating unit on day-to-day basis in support of its own operations.
- Mission is to maintain assigned aircraft and aeronautical equipment in full mission capable status.
What is I-level maintenance and its mission?
- Provides quality and timely material support at nearest location with lowest practical resource expenditure
- Mission is to enhance and sustain combat readiness and mission capability of supported activities
What is D-level maintenance and its mission?
Support O-level and I-level maintenance by providing engineering assistance and performing maintenance beyond their capabilities.
What are two types of maintenance described in the NAMP?
Rework and upkeep
What is Rework?
Restorative, or additive work performed on aircraft, aircraft equipment, and aircraft SE (completed at D-level)
What is Upkeep?
Preventive, restorative, or additive work performed on aircraft, equipment, and SE by operating units and aircraft SE activities.
List the types of Upkeep inspections/maintenance.
In regards to Upkeep maintenance, what is Turnaround Inspection?
- Conducted between flights to ensure integrity of aircraft for flight, verifies proper servicing, and detects degradation that may have occurred during previous flight.
- Good for 24 hrs if no flight occurs during period and no maintenance other than servicing was performed.
In regards to Upkeep maintenance, what is Daily Inspection?
- Conducted to inspect for defects to greater depth than turnaround inspection.
- Valid for 72 hrs without flight or major maintenance.
- Aircraft can be flown for 24 hrs before another daily is needed, but cannot surpass 72 hr limit.
In regards to Upkeep maintenance, what is Special Inspection?
- Scheduled inspection with prescribed interval other than daily or phase.
- Intervals specified in applicable PMS publications, and based on elapsed calendar time, flight hrs, operating hrs, or number of cycles or events.
In regards to Upkeep maintenance, what is Conditional Maintenace and its timeframe?
- Unscheduled events required as result of specific overlimit condition.
- Result of circumstances or events which create administrative requirement for inspection.
In regards to Upkeep maintenance, what is Phase Inspection?
- Divides total scheduled maintenance requirement into smaller packages, or phases of same work content.
- Done sequentially and at specified intervals.
In regards to Upkeep maintenance, what is Acceptance Maintenance?
- Performed when reporting custodian accepts newly assigned aircraft or SE
- On return of aircraft from major depot level maintenance.
In regards to Upkeep maintenance, what is Transfer Maintenance?
Performed when reporting custodian transfers aircraft or SE.
In regards to Rework maintenance, what is Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)?
Process to ensure assets continue to do what their users require in present operating context.
What are two different types of Rework maintenance?
- Aircraft Service Period Adjustment (ASPA)
- Periodic Maintenance Interval (PMI)
What is the difference between maintenance control and production control?
- The level of maintenance at which duties are performed.
- Maintenance control at O-level and production control at I-level.
What are the two most critical aspects in naval aviation?
- Release of an aircraft safe for flight
- Acceptance of the aircraft
