An aircraft maintenance engineer supervising maintenance work on a variety of aircraft for a company, knowingly had maintenance releases signed without the work complying with the Standards of Airworthiness. In addition, he intentionally misled his employees, including the signing AME, and caused to have false entries to be made in the aircraft technical logbooks. The individual received a total licence suspension of 420 days.

 

 

Holy crap.

Holy crap is right. What is crap is that he only got a 420 day suspension. He should have lost his license...permanently.

Agreed. Then again, wouldn't something like this go on the AME's TC record? However, do any employers actually look up an AME's record of violations before hiring them?

As a DoM I always checked to see if the potential AME that I was hiring had any violations - I don't know if any other organizations do that or not.

 

Years ago there was an enforcement investigation within our AMO that actually originated in the US by the FAA ramp inspection of a Bell 206B over an STC installation that was not done correctly in Canada, omitted a few steps in the STC due to operational pressure. Our DoM was directly involved in the installation and he was found in violation of the regulations, he was issued a 2 week suspension of his AME license and the corporation was fined $5,000 and since he no longer met the intent of CAR 573.03(6) had to step down as DoM - he subsequently retired from the corporation.

 

When TC performs an internal audit the results of the audit are subsequently passed over to Enforcement to determine if any enforcement action is required as a result of the audit as noted in TP 13794 (Aviation Enforcement Policy Manual) – section 7.2.2.

 

Just my 2 cents...

 

Hbd..
