MYTH:


No. While a mechanic is responsible for the specific work they perform, in reality, it is the owner who is held responsible overall by the FAA for maintaining the aircraft in airworthy condition. The feds even conveniently state that in black and white in FAR Part 91.403(a).


So, if you think you get a pass on all regulatory maintenance


infractions, you may want to think again and be more involved in the maintenance processes that take place on your aircraft.


And just when you think you have that myth resolved, the owner is also responsible for compliance with the requirements of Part 39, Airworthiness Directives. This is also stated in Part


68 Mar/Apr 2021


The mechanic is responsible for maintaining the aircraft.


91.403(a). So, while your APIA may check for the actual AD compliance during every annual inspection, the owner is the one who is accountable to the man.


Now in all honesty, there is a cross responsibility on Airworthiness Directives that holds a mechanic accountable for ensuring that all applicable ADs are complied with, but


only when they perform certain inspections. So if a new AD is received in the mail by the owner, it falls to the owner to ensure compliance with the new AD until the mechanic performs a required inspection per Part 91 or 125 or §135.411(a)(1) and also assumes responsibility for the new AD compliance.
