[Avionics Today 07-13-2015] The European Aviation Safety Administration’s (EASA) objective to make maintenance rules for General Aviation (GA) aircraft simpler and lighter is coming a step closer to reality. The agency has put its Part-M Light proposal forward for consultation, a significant milestone in the process, according to the agency.
The objective of the initiative is to have proportional aircraft maintenance rules applicable to the lighter end of GA activities. This Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) to the rules is part of the agency’s activities within the General Aviation Road Map to remove some of the burdensome red tape from regulations for the GA community.
