VOLUME 5  AIRMAN CERTIFICATION

CHAPTER 5  TITLE 14 CFR PART 65—AIRMEN OTHER THAN FLIGHT CREWMEMBERS

Section 2  Certificate Airframe and/or Powerplant Mechanic/Added Rating

5-1131    PROGRAM TRACKING AND REPORTING SUBSYSTEM (PTRS) ACTIVITY CODES.

A.    Maintenance: 3501, 3508.

B.    Avionics: 5501, 5508.

Indicates new/changed information.

5-1132    OBJECTIVE. This section provides guidance for certificating applicants and certain certificate actions for Mechanic Certificates and ratings. All inspectors (Airworthiness, Maintenance, or Avionics) who review these documents, unless otherwise stated in this section, must hold a Mechanic Certificate with both Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) ratings in order to sign off on either or both ratings or indicated actions to the certificate.

5-1133    ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS. Applicants for a Mechanic Certificate must meet the requirements of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 65 subparts A and D at the time of application. This must be determined at the time of application since there are no additional checks for mechanic applicants. (For the certification of foreign applicants physically located outside the United States during the time of testing per part 65, § 65.3, see Volume 5, Chapter 5, Section 3).

A.    Age Restrictions. An applicant under 18 years of age may take the tests, but do not issue a Mechanic Certificate until the applicant’s 18th birthday.

Indicates new/changed information.

B.    Language Requirements. All applicants who apply under this section must be able to read, write, speak, and understand English. Applicants for part 65 subparts D, E, and F are not required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) or International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to talk on a two-way radio as part of their eligibility. If the applicant’s English language skill level for applicants under part 65 subparts D, E, and F is in question, have him or her read a section of an appropriate technical manual, and then write and explain his or her interpretation of the reading to satisfy the English language requirement. (An appropriate technical manual in this sense means an Airplane Flight Manual (AFM), maintenance manual, or other publication, as appropriate for the Mechanic Certificate or rating sought.) Once the Airworthiness aviation safety inspector (ASI) is satisfied that the English language level is met, no remarks or additional information needs to be annotated except to sign block V on FAA Form 8610-2, Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application (see block V of Figure 5-236, Sample of Completed FAA Form 8610-2 (Additional Rating) (Front). Only applicants who are applying under Volume 5, Chapter 5, Section 3 need English language remarks annotated.

C.    Testing Periods. Once testing has begun, the applicant must pass all the required tests within a 24‑month period.

Indicates new/changed information.

5-1134    ELIGIBLE TO TEST. In order to meet § 65.77 requirements, applicants for a Mechanic Certificate or rating must show either an appropriate graduation certificate or Certificate of Completion from a certificated Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) or documentary evidence, satisfactory to the Administrator, of 18 months of experience for each rating sought separately; if a combined rating of A&P is sought at the time of application, only 30 months of experience is required.

A.    Additional Documentation. All documents that contain Personally Identifiable Information (PII) should be protected in accordance with FAA Order 1370.121, FAA Information Security and Privacy Program & Policy. All documentation that any part 65 subparts D, E, and F certificate holder or applicant provides that contains PII is on a need-to-know basis. Therefore, only FAA-produced forms, letters, and notices will be sent to the Airmen Certification Branch (AFB-720). All additional non-FAA documents mentioned in this section will only be annotated on FAA Form 8610-2, the PTRS, and/or any future use of the Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Application (IACRA) and Safety Assurance System (SAS), when required and in the manner instructed in this section.

B.    Presenting Certificates. Applicants who apply based on certificates may present one of two types of certificates to meet § 65.77 requirements. Applicants with these certificates may go directly to testing for the written, oral, and practical tests without having to go through a Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) for the rating(s) sought (see the processing procedure in subparagraph 5-1144A and Figure 5-235, Sample of Completed FAA Form 8610-2 (JSAMTCC COE)). The two types of certificates are:

1)    Graduation certificate or Certificate of Completion from a 14 CFR part 147 AMTS, which is based strictly on training hours and subjects for the training curriculum completed for the rating(s) sought (for more information on part 147 schools, refer to Advisory Circular (AC) 147-3, Certification and Operation of Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools).
2)    Certificates of Eligibility (COE) from the Joint Services Aviation Maintenance Technician Certification Council (JSAMTCC) issued to military service members who have met the required months of experience and completed the JSAMTCC training curriculum for the rating(s) sought (for more information on the JSAMTCC program, refer to AC 65-30, Overview of the Aviation Maintenance Profession). See Figure 5-137 for an example of Form CG-G-EAE-4, Certificate of Eligibility, which each qualifying applicant will have with them from the Military Branch JSAMTCC program the applicant completed.

NOTE:  There is no evaluation required for an applicant presenting evidence in the form of a graduation certificate, Certificate of Completion, or COE mentioned in this section. If certificates presented are suspected to be fraudulent, see paragraph 5-1139 for verification of the certificate.

Indicates new/changed information. Indicates new/changed information.

C.    Presenting Documented Evidence. Applicants who only present evidence in the form of documented practical experience in maintaining airframes and/or powerplants must go through a FSDO/International Field Office (IFO) to receive authorization to test. Applicants must present at least 18 months of practical experience appropriate to the rating requested. For a Mechanic Certificate with both ratings, the requirement is 30 months of experience concurrently performing the duties appropriate to both ratings. If the applicant has not met the required 30 months concurrently performing the duties appropriate to both ratings, calculate each rating separately using the 18-month requirement for each. The practical experience must provide the applicant with basic knowledge of and skills in the procedures, practices, materials, tools, machine tools, and equipment used in aircraft construction, alteration, maintenance, and inspection. All applicants who apply based on experience only must have verifiable experience in 50 percent of the subject areas listed for the rating sought (refer to part 147 appendices B, C, and D) in order to be eligible. There is no expectation that an applicant be highly proficient in overhauls, major repairs, or major alterations in the minimum 18/30 months of experience. Types of practical experience that may be evaluated are (see evaluating procedures in subparagraph 5-1134D):

1)    Practical experience gained on U.S.-registered aircraft.
2)    Practical experience gained while serving in a U.S. Military aviation maintenance occupation. Military experience/records may be evaluated for authorization to take the mechanic knowledge test based on documented experience and Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) code, Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC), or Navy Enlisted Code (NEC), as authorized in § 65.77. See Figure 5-135, Military Occupational Specialty Codes, for FAA-accepted military codes.
3)    Practical experience gained in foreign-registered civilian and military aircraft.
4)    Practical experience gained from a combination of all of the above to meet the 18/30-month experience requirement.

NOTE:  Manufacturing of any type of aircraft, including amateur-built experimental, does not count towards practical experience. However, practical experience gained on amateur-built aircraft after the aircraft has received an Airworthiness Certificate may count.

NOTE:  During the evaluation of part-time practical aviation maintenance experience, the applicant must document an equivalent of 18 months for each rating individually, or 30 months concurrently, of experience for both ratings. This is based on a standard workweek that has 8 hours per day for 5 days per week, or a 40-hour workweek, or a total of approximately 160 hours per month. The time is cumulative, but the days, weeks, and months are not required to be consecutive. The practical experience for non-JSAMTCC COE, and those who do not hold a part 147 graduation certificate, must present evidence of experience to an authorized person (see paragraph 5-1132).

D.    Evaluating Experience. Aviation maintenance experience gained as a U.S. Military service member, airframe or powerplant mechanic’s helper, foreign civilian or military aircraft mechanic, or light-sport repairman/experimental amateur-built aircraft repairman will receive evaluations on its own merits to determine whether it fulfills the experience requirements. During the evaluation, the merits in each area that an ASI needs to pay special attention to are:

Indicates new/changed information.
1)    Military experience. ASIs are not to accept MOSs, AFSCs, or NECs “carte blanche” as qualifications to experience as per § 65.77. Even if the FAA has already determined that the MOS, AFSC, or NEC meets authorization for the airframe, powerplant, or both A&P ratings, the inspector will only endorse FAA Form 8610-2 after ensuring, by a thorough interview and detailed review of records presented to the inspector, that the applicant worked in their assigned occupation specialty for the required time. This is necessary due to service members being assigned or volunteering for duty positions outside their occupation (e.g., Admin Clerk, Tool Room Custodian, Drill Instructor, Recruiter, Retention Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO), etc.). Acceptable forms for presenting U.S. Military aviation experience are:
a)    A properly completed DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, which lists the total time in service and the MOS, AFSC, or NEC codes assigned to the applicant. For current MOS, AFSC, or NEC codes, see Figure 5-135.
b)    For service members still serving and as an optional addition for veterans, a letter from the applicant’s executive officer, maintenance officer, or classification officer that certifies the applicant’s length of military service, the amount of time the applicant worked in each MOS, the make and model of aircraft and/or engine on which the applicant acquired the practical experience, and where he or she obtained the experience.
c)    Training records showing the type of aviation schools the applicant attended and/or a record of on-the-job training (OJT). Active duty military, selective guard, and reserve members are eligible for a transcript.
Indicates new/changed information.

NOTE:  Time spent in training or in an MOS, AFSC, or NEC for supervision and/or inspection does not count toward the 18 or 30 months of practical experience required in § 65.77.

NOTE:  The military experience must be directly applicable to the Mechanic Certificate and ratings sought.

2)    Applicants with airframe and/or powerplant mechanic’s helper experience may have a letter signed by an FAA mechanic with an A&P rating who supervised the helper’s work. The letter must have verifiable experience listed in 50 percent of the subject areas listed in part 147 appendices B, C, and D for the rating sought in order to be eligible. All experience must add up to 18/30 months for the rating(s) sought.
3)    Foreign military and/or civilian experience is acceptable experience towards authorization to take the knowledge test based on the context of § 65.77. Foreign applicants located in the United States need to meet the same requirements as a citizen of the United States in order to apply for the mechanic test. This includes applicants who come to the United States just to take the mechanic test. For those located outside the United States at the time of testing, see Volume 5, Chapter 5, Section 3. Documents presented must have practical experience listed in 50 percent of the subject areas listed in part 147 appendices B, C, and D for the rating sought in order to be eligible. All experience must add up to 18/30 months for the rating(s) sought. The following are types of documents that will be acceptable to establish the required record of time and experience:
a)    A detailed original statement from a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of the country in which he or she gained the experience.
Indicates new/changed information.
b)    A detailed statement from an advisor of the ICAO that will validate the applicant’s experience.
Indicates new/changed information.
c)    If the CAA refuses to provide this information, the inspector will take appropriate action to determine that the experience is valid.

NOTE:  “Appropriate action” is whatever the inspector deems appropriate to determine that the experience is valid (e.g., review supporting documentation presented to satisfy authorization) without expending an excessive amount of time or resources on behalf of the applicant.

Indicates new/changed information.

NOTE:  An applicant may show only foreign military work experience on aircraft that are not manufactured to U.S. standards; experience under § 65.77 is not exclusive towards U.S.-manufactured or “N” number-registered aircraft only.

4)    Applicants who have Light-Sport Repairman/Experimental Amateur-Built Aircraft Repairman Certificates may present documentation to verify practical experience in 50 percent of the subject areas listed in part 147 appendices B, C, and D for the rating(s) sought in order to be eligible. All experience must add up to 18/30 months for the rating(s) sought.
5)    Any combination of the above practical experience listed that meets the 18/30-month requirement and task listing for the rating(s) sought.

NOTE:  The block V endorsement on FAA Form 8610-2 for any of the applicants stated above must not be restricted to a specific responsible Flight Standards office area of responsibility.

5-1135    KNOWLEDGE TEST REQUIREMENTS. Section 65.71(a)(3) and (b) require the passage of all of the prescribed tests, which include the knowledge, oral, and practical skill tests, within a 24-month period. The 24 months start at the first attempt of any test, pass or fail. If for any reason other than being held for age, the applicant feels that he or she cannot finish in the 24-month period, the applicant needs to get a new authorization and start a new testing cycle.

A.    Part 147 and JSAMTCC Applicants. There is no evaluation required for an applicant presenting a part 147 graduation certificate or JSAMTCC COE. Except for applicants who apply under § 65.80, all other applicants with a part 147 graduation certificate or JSAMTCC COE may go directly to testing for the written, oral, and practical tests without having to go through a FSDO for the rating(s) sought (refer to the requirements in FAA Order 8080.6, Conduct of Airman Knowledge Tests).

B.    Part 147 Applicants Under § 65.80. Whenever an AMTS certificated under part 147 of this chapter shows to an FAA inspector that any of its students have made satisfactory progress at the school and is prepared to take the oral and practical tests prescribed by § 65.79, that student may take those tests during the final subjects of his or her training in the approved curriculum, before he or she meets the applicable experience requirements of § 65.77 and before he or she passes each section of the written test prescribed by § 65.75. The FAA Form 8610-2 for these applicants must be processed through an ASI prior to taking the written test prescribed by § 65.75 (see subparagraph 5-1144B for processing).

Indicates new/changed information.

C.    Applicants Based on Experience. Applicants who have properly presented evidence and have been evaluated and found eligible to test based on experience (see subparagraphs 5-1134C and D) must have an ASI sign block V on the applicant’s FAA Form 8610-2 in order to take the written test (see Figure 5-236). The following will be required to be sent with the applicant to the testing center:

1)    Two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 endorsed by an Airworthiness ASI in block V. One original will be photocopied by the testing center for the written test and the original will be returned to the applicant. Both originals of FAA Form 8610-2 are required to be presented to the Designated Mechanic Examiner (DME) for the oral and practical tests.
2)    A valid and positive form of picture identification, such as a U.S. driver’s license, passport, or military identification, needs to be presented for identification. It will not be copied, but will be annotated on FAA Form 8610-2 (see Figure 5-236).
Indicates new/changed information.

5-1136    ORAL AND PRACTICAL SKILL TEST PREREQUISITES. Applicants for a Mechanic Certificate and/or added rating(s) must meet the applicable knowledge and skill test requirements of § 65.79. Unless the applicant is applying under § 65.80 (see subparagraph 5-1135B), a valid airman test report (with raised, embossed seal) from a computer test center is required to show proof of successful completion of all sections of the knowledge test. The appropriate knowledge tests are the Aviation Mechanic General (AMG), Aviation Mechanic Airframe (AMA), and Aviation Mechanic Powerplant (AMP), depending on the rating sought. Section 65.71(a)(3) and (b) requires the passage of all of the prescribed tests, which include the knowledge, oral, and practical skill tests, within a 24-month period.

Indicates new/changed information.

A.    Required Items. Applicants must have the following items at the time of the oral and practical tests:

Indicates new/changed information.
1)    Under the Pilot’s Bill of Rights (PBR), applications for airman certificates, ratings, or Inspection Authorizations (IA) involve FAA investigations of an individual’s qualifications to hold the airman certificate, rating, or IA for which the individual has applied. Because such investigations are not for the purpose of determining whether a violation exists, the inspector does not issue a Letter of Investigation (LOI), and therefore only some of the written notifications under the PBR apply. Any individual who applies for an airman certificate, rating, or IA must receive and acknowledge one receipt of the written notification of investigation at the time of the application (see Volume 14, Chapter 1, Section 3, Figure 14-1-3B, Sample Written Notification to an Airman Applicant). The signed acknowledgment of receipt of the written notification must be retained with the individual’s application. A copy of the PBR is also in this section (see Figure 5-237, Sample Written Notification to an Airman Applicant).
2)    Graduates of a part 147 AMTS and JSAMTCC must complete two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 when applying for oral and practical tests.
Indicates new/changed information.
3)    Individuals applying based on civilian or military experience (non-COE holders) must present two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 at the responsible Flight Standards office. Complete blocks I, II, and III. The applicant must sign and date block IV. An Airworthiness ASI who holds a Mechanic Certificate with an A&P must sign and date block V.
Indicates new/changed information.

B.    Part 147 Applicants Under § 65.80. Whenever an AMTS certificated under part 147 shows to an FAA inspector that any of its students have made satisfactory progress at the school and is prepared to take the oral and practical tests prescribed by § 65.79, that student may take those tests during the final subjects of his or her training in the approved curriculum, before he or she meets the applicable experience requirements of § 65.77 and before he or she passes each section of the written test prescribed by § 65.75. These applicants need to go through an ASI designated in paragraph 5-1134. Additionally, the following requirements must be met:

Indicates new/changed information.
1)    The AMTS must show that a student is in the final phase of training, has made satisfactory progress, and is ready for the test. The authorized school official will complete block IIE(1) and (2) on two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 before administering the oral and practical tests. The reviewing ASI in the FSDO will fill out block IIF(1) through (4), ensuring that the expiration date is not later than the anticipated graduation date as shown in block IID(4).
2)    In completing the two originals of FAA Form 8610-2, the student will show the school’s name and location, school certificate number, the student’s curriculum, and the expected graduation date.
Indicates new/changed information.
3)    After completion of the two originals of FAA Form 8610-2, ensure that the type of photo identification the applicant presented is manually annotated in the “Remarks” block on the reverse side of the application. The Airworthiness ASI will only visually verify the number and expiration date on the photo identification (e.g., U.S. driver’s license, passport, or military identification). Verify that the DME has completed the “Results of Oral and Practical Tests” and the “Designated Examiner’s Report,” accordingly. Verify that the “FAA Inspector’s Report” is complete in its entirety, including approval date, signature, and the FSDO number.

NOTE:  The FSDO needs to review all applications that are made under § 65.80, and/or stated “hold for age,” and all applications that are marked “Disapproved” for any reason. These applications must have the “FAA Inspector’s Report” completed.

C.    Military Allowance. In order to avoid penalizing U.S. personnel who are unable to meet the regulatory time limits of their flight instructor certificate, IA, or airman written test report because they are serving outside of the United States in support of U.S. Armed Forces operations, the allowances of Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 100-2 are observed. This gives U.S. personnel who are assigned outside the United States in support of U.S. Armed Forces operations extra time to meet certain eligibility requirements in the current rules. Effective June 20, 2010, and until further notice, SFAR 100-2 will continue to allow FSDOs to accept expired airman written test reports for certain practical tests from U.S. personnel who are assigned outside the United States in support of U.S. Armed Forces operations.

5-1137    ORAL AND PRACTICAL SKILL TEST ADMINISTRATION.

A.    Standardized Test Procedures. FAA Order 8900.2, General Aviation Airman Designee Handbook, provides standardized procedures for conducting and processing mechanic oral and practical tests. Inspectors and examiners conducting the tests must use this handbook to ensure a satisfactory standard of competency by applicants for Mechanic Certificates.

Indicates new/changed information. Indicates new/changed information.

B.    FAA Form 8610-2. The only acceptable evidence of having passed a required oral or practical test is FAA Form 8610-2. In the “Results of Oral and Practical Tests” on the reverse side, the form must indicate either that the applicant has passed, with a 24-month expiration date, or that the applicant has failed, listing the questions and/or projects failed in the “Remarks” block.

Indicates new/changed information. Indicates new/changed information.

C.    Retest Applicants. An applicant for a retest must first present a valid airman test report (with raised, embossed seal) from a computer test center, two newly completed FAA Forms 8610-2, and the failed FAA Form 8610-2, to remain in the original 24-month § 65.71(a)(3) window. If less than 30 days has passed since the last test, the applicant must present a letter from an appropriate source indicating additional instruction received in each subject previously failed. The letter of additional instruction should mention the minimum requirements for the person providing the training. That person must hold a Mechanic Certificate with at least the rating the applicant is testing for. The retest must cover all subject areas in the failed or incomplete sections, unless the 24‑month expiration has lapsed. If an applicant is unable to produce a failed test or 24 months have expired, a new evaluation with an Airworthiness ASI authorization will be required to start a new testing cycle.

Indicates new/changed information.

D.    Additional Ratings. Applicants for additional rating(s) who have passed the General section of the test need not retake the General section. Proof of passing the General section may be in the form of a current Mechanic Certificate or FAA Form 8610-2 indicating the previous passage of the section by checking the additional rating block (see Figure 5-236).

5-1138    CHANGE OF ADDRESS/NAME/GENDER/CITIZENSHIP/NATIONALITY/DATE OF BIRTH.

Indicates new/changed information.

NOTE:  For changes to the name, gender, citizenship/nationality, and birth date on a Mechanic Certificate, use two signed originals of FAA Form 8610-2. The applicant fills out block I and block IV only; the inspector fills out the “FAA Inspector’s Report” (with the “Approved” box marked, and date, signature, and FSDO number included); and the method of identification shown in the “Remarks” block on the reverse side of the application must be completed. (See Figure 5-234, Sample of Completed FAA Form 8610-2 (Name and Gender Change).) Once both forms are completed, one goes to the applicant and the other to AFB-720.

5-1139    FALSIFICATION, FRAUDULENT REPRODUCTION, OR ALTERATION OF DOCUMENTS. Persons who falsify, fraudulently reproduce, or alter certificates or other documents required to support the issuance of that certificate are subject to suspension or revocation of a Mechanic Certificate held by that person that was fraudulently applied for. Remind applicants that Title 18 of the United States Code (18 U.S.C.) § 1001 applies, which states that whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States, knowingly and willfully falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact, or makes any false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or representations, or makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or entries, will be fined under 18 U.S.C., imprisoned, or both. When checking certificates and documents, the following should be noted:

Indicates new/changed information.

A.    Required Plastic Certificates. The paper-to-plastic Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) was finalized on February 28, 2008. All mechanics who do not have the new security-enhanced plastic Mechanic Certificate were required to get a replacement by March 31, 2013. Since this date, airmen are no longer able to exercise the privileges of their paper Mechanic Certificate until it is replaced by a plastic one. See subparagraph 5-1146B for procedures to replace or cancel paper certificates.

B.    JSAMTCC COE. All U.S. Military services report their program graduates to the Air Force representative at the beginning of every month. The reported information includes: name, COE control number, date of issue, MOS/rating, and ratings issued for the certificate (G/A/P for General, Airframe, and Powerplant). The Air Force representative sends the eligibility information to the corresponding representative in the General Aviation Branch (AFS-350) around the 15th of every month. If the authenticity of an individual COE is in doubt, contact AFS-350 at 202-267-1675.

C.    Part 147 Graduation Certificates or Certificates of Completion. An AMTS official must authenticate all student certificates issued. This should be accomplished by verifying that the student has passed the specified courses or has received prior credit based on the AMTS approved curriculum requirements. The certificate cannot be issued unless all curriculum requirements have been completed for the certificate sought. All students meeting the AMTS graduation or completion requirements must be issued the appropriate certificate. Each school shall give a graduation certificate or Certificate of Completion to each student it graduates. The certificate must show the date of graduation or completion and the approved curriculum title. The certificates should contain the name of the AMTS, its certificate number, the approved course name, and date of graduation. If the authenticity of a graduation certificate or Certificate of Completion is in doubt, contact the FSDO that has oversight of the AMTS to verify.

5-1140    INELIGIBLE APPLICANTS.

Indicates new/changed information.

A.    Suspended or Revoked Certificate Holders. A suspended or revoked Mechanic Certificate holder may not apply for another Mechanic Certificate during the period of suspension/revocation. The inspector must review the suspension/revocation order, which will specify any unique terms regarding its duration. An airman with a suspended/revoked Mechanic Certificate may not reapply for that certificate for a period up to but not exceeding 1 year after the date of suspension/revocation (refer to § 65.11). The inspector must review the suspension/revocation order if that applicant attempts to apply before 1 year has expired, to ensure it was properly executed and initiated by an authorized person in paragraph 5-1132. (See Figure 5-236 for an example.)

B.    Denial of Applications. Section 65.12(a) and (b) are grounds for denial of application of a certificate to any person convicted of a drug-related offense within the previous 12 months.

Indicates new/changed information.

NOTE:  Although § 65.12 is titled “Offenses Involving Alcohol or Drugs,” the General Counsel has determined that § 65.12 does not cover alcohol-related convictions since they are related to a medical certificate. Mechanics and repairmen are not required to have medical certificates as part of a Mechanic certification.

NOTE:  A conviction that is under legal appeal is not a final conviction.

Indicates new/changed information.

5-1141    COMPETENCY EXAMINATIONS/REEXAMINATIONS. Title 49 of the United States Code (49 U.S.C.) § 44709 provides for reexamination. The reconsideration of an airman’s competence is a serious issue that requires ample cause. In most cases, a reexamination will follow the investigation of an occurrence, accident, or incident apparently caused by the airman’s lack of qualification or questionable competence. Airworthiness ASIs will ensure and take appropriate action that reexamination is performed only when there is reasonable cause to believe that a mechanic’s knowledge and skill under §§ 65.75 and 65.77 is in question. For the procedures and further information on reexamination of a mechanic, see Volume 5, Chapter 7, Section 3.

5-1144    PROCEDURES.

Indicates new/changed information.

A.    Part 147 and JSAMTCC Applicants. There is no evaluation required for an applicant presenting a part 147 graduation certificate or JSAMTCC COE, except for applicants who apply under § 65.80. Send the part 147 graduation certificate or JSAMTCC COE directly to the testing center for the written, oral, and practical test. Testing centers will process these applicants according to Order 8080.6 and this section. DMEs will process these applicants according to Order 8900.2 guidance and this section (see Figure 5-235). If there is doubt concerning the validity of the COE, Certificate of Completion, or graduation certificate, see paragraph 5-1139.

B.    Part 147 Applicants Under § 65.80. A part 147 certificated school that has procedures in the school’s manual may have a student who, under § 65.80, has made satisfactory progress at the school and is prepared to take the oral and practical tests prescribed by § 65.79. If the student wants to take those tests during the final subjects of his or her training, they may do so. This action requires the following:

1)    The AMTS must show that a student is in the final phase of training, has made satisfactory progress, and is ready for the test. The authorized school official will complete block IIE(1) and (2) on two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 before administering the oral and practical tests. The reviewing ASI in the FSDO will fill out block IIF(1) through (4), ensuring that the expiration date is not later than the anticipated graduation date as shown in block IID(4).
2)    In completing the two originals of FAA Form 8610-2, the student will show the school’s name and location, school certificate number, the student’s curriculum, and the expected graduation date.
3)    After completion of the two originals of FAA Form 8610-2, ensure that the “Remarks” block on the reverse side of the application indicates the airman’s identification (e.g., U.S. driver’s license number and expiration date). Verify that the DME has completed the “Results of Oral and Practical Tests” and the “Designated Examiner’s Report,” accordingly. Verify that the “FAA Inspector’s Report” is complete in its entirety, including approval date, signature, and the FSDO number.

NOTE:  The FSDO needs to review applications made under § 65.80, “hold for age,” and disapproved applications. These applications must have the “FAA Inspector’s Report” completed. The time held for age does not count against the 24-month period.

C.    Application Based on Experience. To apply for a Mechanic Certificate with either an Airframe or Powerplant Rating or both, the applicant must present the following documentation to any authorized person listed in paragraph 5-1132 at a FSDO:

Indicates new/changed information.
1)    A positive form of picture identification such as a U.S. driver’s license, passport, or U.S. Military identification, presented in person at the time of application and temporary certificate issuance. In addition, the applicant must provide an address where the applicant currently resides. An applicant can use a P.O. Box, rural route, AMTS address, personal mailbox, commercial mail drop, or other mail drop as the applicant’s preferred mailing address; however, the applicant must also furnish a physical location where the applicant can be located, a strip map, or written directions to the applicant’s physical location. This information must be included on the application. ASIs should record the identification method in the “Remarks” block on the back of FAA Form 8610-2 and ensure that the applicant meets the minimum age.
2)    One completed PBR Written Notification of Investigation (see Figure 5-237 or Volume 14, Chapter 1, Section 3, Figure 14-1-3B, for a blank form example).
3)    Without any assistance, the applicant must read and sign the “Applicant’s Certification” block on the front of the form in the proper location in the presence of an FAA Airworthiness ASI. If the applicant is unable to accomplish this, see subparagraph 5-1133B.
Indicates new/changed information.

D.    Review Application. The ASI will check the enhanced Vital Information Database (eVID) and PTRS to determine the status of any existing certificates and to determine if the applicant has made previous attempts to obtain authorization for testing. If the PTRS indicates that the applicant may have been previously denied due to lack of qualification or knowledge, then further research should be performed prior to issuing an authorization. Enter the results of the research in the PTRS comments section when recording the authorization or denial. If it is a denial and no testing has taken place, no further processing of FAA Form 8610-2 is required.

1)    If the applicant has previously held or currently holds a Mechanic Certificate, check the eVID. Obtain a copy of a mechanic’s suspension/revocation order less than 12 months old for review. If the applicant is ineligible for a certificate/rating under §§ 65.11 and 65.12, return the application and take enforcement action under § 65.20, if appropriate.
2)    If the applicant is eligible, proceed with the certification.
Indicates new/changed information.

E.    Ensure that the Applicant Meets Requirements for Certificate/Rating.

Indicates new/changed information.
1)    Ensure that the applicant has met the experience requirements. If the applicant is eligible for only one mechanic rating, or is testing for only one mechanic rating, ensure that only that rating the applicant is testing for is marked on FAA Form 8610-2 and that all other ratings that the applicant is not testing for have a line through them (see Figure 5-236 for an example). All dates on FAA Form 8610-2 will use the eight-digit format MM/DD/YYYY, except block III will use the six-digit format MM/YYYY.
2)    Determine if the applicant can read, write, speak, and understand English (see subparagraph 5-1133B).
Indicates new/changed information.
3)    Verify that the applicant is at least 18 years old. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, explain to the applicant that the applicant will not receive a Mechanic Certificate until the applicant’s 18th birthday.
4)    The following tasks at the responsible Flight Standards office:
a)    Applicants who present a part 147 graduation certificate or a COE, Form CG-G-EAE-4 (Figure 5-137), with an FAA Certification Performance of Job Tasks, Form CG-G-EAE-2 (Figure 5-136), and a photo identification may receive, but are not required to obtain, a block V signoff on FAA Form 8610-2 and may proceed directly to testing. All others process by the procedures below.

NOTE:  If needed, instruct the DME that block III should reflect completion of the FAA/Military Certification of Performance of Job Tasks (JSAMTCC) program, along with the issuance control number as recorded on the applicant’s COE (Form CG-G-EAE-4). In addition, the applicant must also list his or her total length of military service in block III (see Figure 5-235).

b)    An Airworthiness ASI (Maintenance or Avionics) who holds a Mechanic Certificate with an A&P rating will review the presented items.
c)    An ASI will have the applicant fill out the PBR acknowledgement (see Figure 5-237) prior to filling out FAA Form 8610-2.
Indicates new/changed information.
d)    Applicants must complete two originals of FAA Form 8610-2 with blocks I, II, III, and IV filled out. Applicants and the ASI will sign both copies of FAA Form 8610-2 with original signatures. The ASI should also instruct the applicant to retain both originals for testing purposes.
Indicates new/changed information.

NOTE:  Applicants applying based on civil experience must complete block IIIB. Applicants applying based on military experience must complete blocks IIIA and B. Military applicants may still receive evaluations for authorization to take the mechanic knowledge test based on documented experience and MOS codes, as authorized in § 65.77.

Indicates new/changed information.
e)    For applicants processing through the FSDO/IFO, the inspector will complete the following tasks:

1.    Sign block V on both FAA Forms 8610-2.

2.    Return both originals to the applicant.

3.    Provide the applicant information on where to test if needed. Refer to https://www.faa.gov/training_testing/testing/.

4.    Enter PTRS code 3501 or 5501.

F.    Proof of Completion. Prior to authorizing the oral and practical tests for all non-§ 65.80 applicants, an ASI (authorized in paragraph 5-1132) or DME (for part 147 and JSAMTCC COE applicants only) ensures that the applicant has successfully completed all applicable knowledge tests for the rating sought. Review the appropriate airman test report to ensure all appropriate sections of the knowledge test have been successfully completed within a 24-month period.

G.    Administering and Passing Tests. Ensure the administration and passing of oral and practical tests has been properly administered. If necessary, administer these tests to the applicant according to Order 8900.2.

H.    Review Oral and Practical Test Results. Verify the successful completion of all applicable sections within a 24-month period.

Indicates new/changed information.

I.    Verify Completed “Inspector’s Report.” After verifying all information previously mentioned, complete the “Inspector’s Report.” Check the appropriate boxes, sign, date, and include the FSDO number. Only mark the “Approved” box if the inspector is the one issuing the temporary certificate. Follow up on and conduct an investigation if necessary for any indications or complaints that the applicant was not treated fairly by either the knowledge test center or DME.

J.    Emergency Replacement Certificates. In an emergency, an authorized person listed in paragraph 5-1132 may issue a Temporary Airman Certificate to replace a lost or destroyed certificate.

1)    The following conditions must be met before issuing an emergency replacement certificate:
a)    The mechanic must show that an immediate replacement of the lost or destroyed certificate is necessary to start or continue employment.
Indicates new/changed information.
b)    The mechanic must show that it is not possible or feasible to obtain a faxed temporary authority from AFB-720 or the mechanic does not wish to register online. If the mechanic wishes to register online, the mechanic can obtain an online request for temporary fax authority at https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/airmen_services/.
c)    The inspector must personally know the mechanic to issue a Temporary Airman Certificate, or they must present, in person, acceptable evidence of identity such as a valid, government-issued identification.
Indicates new/changed information.
d)    Check FAA computer systems, the Safety Performance Analysis System (SPAS) and/or PTRS, or contact AFB-720 for verification of the Mechanic Certificate and ratings of the lost or destroyed Mechanic Certificate. To confirm the validity of the Mechanic Certificate, contact the Aviation Data Branch (AFS-620).
Indicates new/changed information. Indicates new/changed information.
2)    Clearly mark the temporary certificate issued “EMERGENCY FIELD ISSUANCE” and limit it to the reasonable time necessary for the mechanic to obtain a duplicate certificate from AFB-720. Do not issue a temporary certificate for more than 60 days in any case. Copies of Emergency Field Issuance temporary certificates are maintained at the FSDO level. Do not send an Emergency Field Issuance application to AFB-720.
3)    An expired temporary certificate may be reissued, provided the inspector contacts AFB-720 to determine why a permanent Mechanic Certificate has not been issued.
Indicates new/changed information.
4)    If the applicant returns to the FSDO to receive a Temporary Airman Certificate because he or she has come of age or has completed the knowledge tests reports under § 65.80, the applicant must complete the “Applicant’s Certification” block on the back of FAA Form 8610-2. The applicant’s date must match the date the inspector signed the Temporary Airman Certificate.

5-1145    TASK OUTCOMES.

A.    Complete the PTRS Record.

Indicates new/changed information.

B.    Issue a Certificate/Added Rating in Accordance with Instructions.

1)    After the applicant has met all the requirements for the certificate/rating, issue FAA Form 8060-4. The applicant must either typewrite this form or fill it out in ink, and the issuing official and the applicant must sign it.
Indicates new/changed information.
a)    No original airman certificates will use the Social Security Number (SSN) of the applicant as the certificate number. DMEs and Airworthiness inspectors will always use the word “pending” in the “Certificate No.” block on the Temporary Airman Certificate unless the Mechanic Certificate is adding a rating.
b)    DMEs and Airworthiness inspectors should issue and handle FAA Form 8060-4 as follows:
Indicates new/changed information.

1.    No person other than a Flight Standards Service Airworthiness inspector or authorized DME may issue these forms to a mechanic.

2.    Do not issue FAA Form 8060-4 unless an Airworthiness inspector or an authorized DME has signed it.

Indicates new/changed information.

3.    When an applicant has accomplished the prescribed examinations, the examining official will prepare FAA Form 8060-4 in duplicate with the applicant’s name and address preferably typed (or if unable to type, legibly printed with ballpoint pen), and sign his or her name in the appropriate space provided. The examiner will also insert his or her designation number in the space provided.

NOTE:  The “valid outside the United States” statement does not pertain to persons who complete their evaluation and/or testing in the United States, and/or work in the United States. In this case, the applicant must be able to read, write, speak, and understand the English language.

4.    Ensure that the duplicate copy given to the applicant is legible.

Indicates new/changed information.

5.    Enter the word “PENDING” in the “Certificate No.” block if the applicant is not adding a rating to the Mechanic Certificate. AFB-720 will assign a unique certificate number. Otherwise, enter the permanent certificate number.

NOTE:  The reverse side of FAA Form 8060-4 (Conditions of Issuance) states: “This is an interim certificate issued subject to the approval of the Federal Aviation Administration pending the issue of a greater duration. As such the use of “PENDING” during this period is considered tantamount to a digital number for the purposes of meeting the recording requirements of 14 CFR part 43, §§ 43.9 and 43.11, as applicable.”

Indicates new/changed information.

NOTE:  On FAA Form 8610-2, the SSN is no longer used in the SSN block. Have the applicant enter the words “Do Not Use” in the SSN block on the application.

Indicates new/changed information.
2)    For a reissuance, continue to show the previously assigned certificate number in block III. A reissued certificate may use a U.S. SSN as the certificate number if the airman wishes to retain that number as the certificate number. If a U.S. SSN appears on the application, enter the SSN without dashes or spaces immediately above the applicant’s date of birth. If a new certificate number is to be issued, ensure both appropriate ratings are on the FAA Form 8060-4 and annotated in the “Remarks” block on FAA Form 8610-2. The certificate with the old number is now superseded and is to be destroyed by punching a hole through the holographic FAA emblem in the lower right-hand corner of the certificate with a hole punch. The hole should be at least of an inch in diameter (approximately) to ensure the destruction is obvious. The certificate may then be returned to the mechanic. If no new number is required, a certificate with the same number and the additional rating will be reissued.
a)    Fill out FAA Form 8610-2.
Indicates new/changed information.
b)    When the applicant passes all sections, and all applicable “Pass” blocks are marked, indicate the 24-month expiration date on the back of the application. Complete the “FAA Inspector’s Report” on FAA Form 8610-2. Sign the form with the office identifier and date.
Indicates new/changed information.

NOTE:  The inspector’s signature in the “FAA Inspector’s Report” on the back of the application indicates that the inspector has only reviewed the form for completeness if he or she checks “Examined this applicant’s papers.” If the inspector actually gave the test, he or she checks the “Personally Tested” block. The signature is not an endorsement of the applicant’s eligibility by an Airworthiness ASI. Only block V on the front of the form is an endorsement of the applicant’s eligibility by an Airworthiness ASI.

c)    Give the applicant the other signed original of FAA Form 8610-2 with instructions to keep it until they receive the permanent certificate.
Indicates new/changed information.
3)    Complete and submit to AFB-720 an application file with the following:
a)    An original FAA Form 8060-4, signed by the issuing inspector/examiner.
b)    One original FAA Form 8610-2 with completed blocks I, II, III, IV, and V (as appropriate).
c)    Copies of test planning sheets (DME).

NOTE:  FSDOs are no longer required to keep copies of the test planning sheets in the designee’s FSDO file. The office may choose to retain a copy of the test planning sheet in the designee’s file.

Indicates new/changed information.
d)    Send certification files via mail to AFB-720 (see address in subparagraph 5-1138F) as soon as possible to permit the necessary review and processing to take place before the expiration of the temporary certificate.

C.    Deny a Certificate/Added Rating. When the applicant fails any required section of the oral or practical test or does not complete the test, accomplish the following:

Indicates new/changed information.
1)    If the applicant is still within the 24-month window and wishes to continue testing, complete the “FAA Inspector’s Report” of FAA Form 8610-2 on the reverse side of the application. Check and complete all appropriate block(s) in the “FAA Inspector’s Report.” Ensure that the application is completed in blocks I, II, III, IV, and V, as appropriate.
a)    Make an entry in the applicant’s PTRS record showing that the applicant wishes to retest.
b)    Return one of the originals of FAA Form 8610-2 to the applicant as a record of the sections passed and failed to show the DME what sections have to be covered during retest. Also, complete two new originals of FAA Form 8610-2 using the original 24-month period dates.
c)    Place the other old originals of FAA Form 8610-2 in a temporary file until the applicant returns with a passing score or the 24-month period has expired.
d)    Instruct the applicant to go to a DME and present all three FAA Forms 8610-2 to the DME for retesting.
2)    If the applicant is not within the 24-month window and either has not returned or has made it known that they do not wish to continue testing, then make an entry in the applicant’s PTRS record showing that the applicant does not wish to continue testing.
3)    If the applicant is over the 24-month window but does wish to continue testing, use the procedures in paragraph 5-1135.
4)    If the applicant is within the 24-month window but feels they cannot finish within the 24-month window and wishes to continue testing, use the procedures in paragraph 5-1135.

D.    Applicant Successfully Completes Retest.

1)    Check the oral and practical retests against the FAA Form 8610-2 in the temporary file to ensure that all the subject areas in the failed section, as indicated on the application, were covered.
2)    Follow the procedures in subparagraph 5-1145B.
Indicates new/changed information.

E.    Investigate Discrepancies. Investigate all indications or reports of falsification, fraudulent reproduction, alteration of airman certification documents and applications, or complaints against testing facilities or DMEs.

Indicates new/changed information.

5-1146    VOLUNTARY CANCELLATION OF CERTIFICATE OR RATING.

A.    Process for Surrendered Certificate. Use this procedure for a mechanic who voluntarily surrenders an FAA Mechanic Certificate or rating for cancellation for other than enforcement or reexamination reasons. When a holder of an FAA Mechanic Certificate voluntarily surrenders the Mechanic Certificate or rating, accomplish the following:

1)    Have the FAA mechanic surrendering his or her certificate or just a rating fill out blocks I and IV and place the verbiage “Voluntarily Surrender Mechanic Certificate/Airframe & Powerplant” or just “Voluntarily Surrender Mechanic Certificate/Airframe” or “Voluntarily Surrender Mechanic Certificate/Powerplant” in the “Specify Rating” block on two original signed FAA Forms 8610-2. On FAA Form 8610-2, Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application (Surrender), the Airworthiness ASI signs and marks the “Approved” block on both FAA Forms 8610-2.
2)    Send one signed original FAA Form 8610-2 to AFB-720 with the surrendered certificate along with a voluntary surrender letter for cancellation (see Figure 5-238, Sample Voluntary Surrender for Cancellation) and give the other completed signed original FAA Form 8610-2 to the individual surrendering the certificate or rating.
3)    If both ratings are on one certificate, issue a temporary certificate if the mechanic is not surrendering all ratings, and add in the “Remarks” block on FAA Form 8610-2 to issue a new certificate with the same number with the remaining rating.
4)    Update the eVID to reflect surrender of the certificate.

B.    Paper Mechanic Certificate Replacement or Cancellation. To voluntarily surrender a paper FAA Mechanic Certificate with any rating which is not in compliance with § 65.15(d) for plastic replacement or cancellation, follow the procedures at https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/airmen_certification/certificate_replacement/. Those who do not wish to replace their paper certificate and do not want to use Option 2 of the procedures, but want to cancel their paper certificate, can submit a signed statement attested by their signature in the letter stating, “This request is made for my own reasons, with full knowledge that my (insert name of certificate and/or rating as appropriate) may not be reissued to me unless I again pass the tests prescribed for its issuance.” Mechanics surrendering paper certificates may send their paper certificates along with the prescribed request as stated above. The Sample Voluntary Surrender for Cancellation in Figure 5-238 may be used for this purpose.

C.    Voluntary Surrender of a Mechanic Certificate Due to Reexamination. See Volume 5, Chapter 7, Section 3. For all other reasons for surrendering a certificate not covered in this section or in Volume 5, Chapter 7, Section 3, refer to FAA Order 2150.3, FAA Compliance and Enforcement Program.

5-1147    FUTURE ACTIVITIES. Conduct routine surveillance.
