THE TAKEAWAY


The repairing of aircraft with salvage/surplus parts will never go away and should not go away. For more and more aircraft, it’s becoming the only way to source parts to keep them flying. The FAA has also realized this and issued additional guidance such as AC 23-27, providing an acceptable means to substitute certain parts and materials on these older vintage aircraft.


For the most part, a general lack of guidance and knowledge got us down this road in the first place. However, I believe with the current level of exposure and information out there on salvage/ surplus parts and aircraft repairs, we can close a good portion of that knowledge gap and put the Swiss cheese back on our sandwich instead of using it as an accident investigative tool.


About the author: After 32 years maintaining helicopters in various capacities, Skola concluded a full-time career with a major operator in 2014. When not pursuing future writing projects, he can still be seen around the flight line tinkering on aircraft for beer money. He can be contacted at tekaviationllc@gmail.com.


Sales – (2014) Legal Interpretation, provides a very specific illustration of how the guidance is intended to work.


With the implementation of Part 3, the FAA LOIs, and Order 8900.19, there is now a definitive reference when it comes to using or repairing salvage aircraft and their subsequent parts. And while the Order still allows some subjective interpretation, hopefully it will also provide the means to purge nefarious individuals whose sole purpose is to make a buck.
