DEFINITIONS AND PREAMBLE

 

 

 

DEFINITIONS

 

The required definitions listed are listed in Appendix B of MMEL Policy Letter 25. Additional definitions may be included in an operators MEL as desired. Revision of PL-025 does not require revision to the operator’s MEL.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PREAMBLE

 

The applicable preamble must be inserted in the operator’s MEL from current FAA Policy Letter
PL-34 or Policy Letter PL-36.

 

 

The FOEB has identified a need for certain procedures to provide an adequate level of safety while providing relief for some items. These procedures must be established by the operator and may be based on the aircraft manufacturer’s recommended procedures, Supplemental Type Certificate modifier’s recommended procedures, or equivalent operator procedures. When recommended procedures are published the operator should comply with these procedures. If recommended procedures are not published, the following guidelines delineate the aspects to be considered by the operator in the development of required procedures.
