Summary of Change.
Volume 3, Chapter 20, Section 2, Safety Assurance System: Check Pilot and
Check Flight Engineer Approval and Surveillance.
Explanation of Policy Changes. Revisions
to this section are necessary as a result of the Qualification, Service, and
Use of Crewmembers and Aircraft Dispatchers (part
121 subpart N&O) final rule. Revisions to this section are also necessary
to address an inconsistency in the field and the AFS-40 interpretation regarding
what documents must be retained in a check pilot or Check Flight engineer (FE)
file. Revision also removes obsolete guidance related to what needs to be provided
in a check airman nomination package and the procedures in paragraph 3-1432
that are not workable across the entire spectrum of 135 operators.
