AIRWORTHINESS AUTHORITY APPROVAL
When MTU called me to consult for them at the end of August 1998, they wanted me to set up their Quality Department and obtain their Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) certificate from Transport Canada (TC) in time for the November 2nd start up, six weeks away. The draft Maintenance Policy Manual MTU had prepared was not acceptable to Transport Canada. By working closely with TC, I was able to re-write the manual, train all management on it, set up a QA organization, assist Human Resources interviewing and hiring a Quality Director and six Quality Administrators, and obtain the AMO certificate by Nov 2nd.
In 2002, I was asked by a mechanic in a major airline’s component MRO shop to obtain Transport Canada AMO for a component overhaul business he was starting up.
I wrote a Maintenance Policy Manual to meet TC requirements and advised the client how to meet TC requirements for QA, Records, Production Control, and Material Control. The client obtained his AMO certificate on first application.
