Elvis Posted August 18, 2007 Report Share Posted August 18, 2007 More confusing crap from CARs APPENDIX A AME LICENCE RATING M1 AND M2 : AIRCRAFT The M1 and M2 ratings are dependent upon the aircraft type certification basis and propulsion system. The scope of maintenance release privileges includes all specialized and non-specialized work and can be assessed generically as follows: M1 - Aircraft built to CAR 522, 523, 523-VLA, 527, 549, and equivalent standards, but excluding turbojet aircraft. - Includes gliders, small piston powered, and small turboprop aircraft. M2 All aircraft (excluding balloons) not included in M1, which include (but is not limited to), aircraft built to CAR 525, 529, and equivalent standards. Includes all turbojet aircraft. As a general reference the following table can be used when assessing aircraft and equivalent standards. This table is not exhaustive and was developed primarily for older aircraft, where the certification basis may be difficult to identify.

This will enable either M1 or M2 rated AME licence holders to sign maintenance releases in respect of the maintenance of turbine-powered helicopters and SFAR 41C aeroplanes, including their associated Commuter Category variants and derivatives. This applies to all holders of Canadian AME licences endorsed with either an M1 or M2 aircraft rating when signing maintenance releases for the following aircraft: Aircraft Type/Model Basis of Certification AME Rating All Turbine-Powered Helicopters Various M1 or M2 Beechcraft 300 SFAR 41C M1 or M2 B300/B300C FAR 23 M1 or M2 1900/1900C SFAR 41C M1 or M2 1900D FAR 23 M1 or M2 British Aerospace Jetstream Series 3100 Model 3112 FAR 23/SFAR 41C M1 or M2 Jetstream Series 3200 Model 3212 AWM 523 M1 or M2 Dornier 228-201/202 SFAR 41C M1 or M2 Fairchild SA 227 AC/AT SA 227 CC/DC SFAR 41C CAR 523 M1 or M2 M1 or M2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
