Guest Bullet Remington Posted March 21, 2010 Report Share Posted March 21, 2010 Ok, quick overview - I've been asked to do an import on a privately owned 520N. I have done private imports on 500e's for the same individual and he wants me to do the 520. My problem is, I'm NOT sure that I can legally sign a release on this machine. I have held an ACA for and done lots of work on these machines for an Eastern operator with an ACA based upon my 500D/E course endorsement. I have been told by people in the industry that I cannot release this machine nor can I attain an ACA based upon my previous training and Experience, based upon the 500D/E training. I called Transport and they advised me that I needed a differences course, UNLESS I was 'grandfathered" based upon being endorsed / trained PRIOR TO 1999. Now my training was done on the 500D/E PRIOR to 1999 BUt I was given an ACA in 2000 and renewed with the AMO in 2005. At that time there was no "difference"course. I am told that at this time MDHC do run a difference coursem but I haven't checked. I can't find anything on the TCA web site nor can I get anything but an opinion from the TCCA M & M inspectors. So, what authority says that Ii can't obtain an ACA on the 520N based upon the 500D/E training?? And what Authority states that Ii can be grandfathered?? The opinions and intrepretations of an M & M Inspector aside, does anybody have any insight into the ramblings of TCCA on this?? Surely there has to be something concrete other then individual dictates?? I would really like to find something in writing, either way . Thoughts? Anyone??
