must reflect the actual number installed or an alternate means of

configuration control approved by the Administrator.

c.  "Number Required for Dispatch" (Column 3) is the minimum

number (quantity) of items required for operation provided

the conditions specified in Column 4 are met.

NOTE:  Where the MMEL shows a variable number required for dispatch,

the MEL must reflect the actual number required for dispatch or an

alternate means of configuration control approved by the

Administrator.

d.  "Remarks or Exceptions" (Column 4) in this column includes a

statement either prohibiting or permitting operation with a

specific number of items inoperative, provisos (conditions and

limitations) for such operation, and appropriate notes.

e.  A vertical bar (change bar) in the margin indicates a change,

addition or deletion in the adjacent text for the current

revision of that page only.  The change bar is dropped at the

next revision of that page.

2.  "Airplane/Rotorcraft Flight Manual" (AFM/RFM) is the document

certain provisions (restrictive or permissive) expressed in the Federal

Aviation Regulations operating rules.  The number of items required by

the FAR must be operative.  Items installed that are in excess of the

FAR requirements may be permitted by the operator's MEL to be

inoperative if not otherwise required by the MMEL.

4.  "*" symbol in Column 4 indicates the listed item if inoperative,

must be placarded to inform and remind the crewmembers and maintenance

personnel of the equipment condition.

NOTE:  To the extent practical, placards should be located adjacent

to the control or indicator for the item affected; however, unless

otherwise specified, placard wording and location will be determined by

the operator.

5.  "-" symbol in Column 2 and/or Column 3 indicates a variable number

(quantity) of the item installed.

NOTE:  Where the MMEL shows a variable number installed, the MEL

must reflect the actual number installed or an alternate means of

MASTER MINIMUM EQUIPMENT LIST

Date: 6/14/1989

CESSNA MODELS 406 AND F406

Preamble

(Effective 6/14/89)

The following is applicable for authorized certificate holders operating

under Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Parts 121, 125, 129, 135: The

FAR require that all equipment installed on an aircraft in compliance

with the Airworthiness Standards and the Operating Rules must be

operative.  However, the Rules also permit the publication of a Minimum

Equipment List (MEL) where compliance with certain equipment

requirements is not necessary in the interests of safety under all

operating conditions.  Experience has shown that with the various levels

of redundancy designed into aircraft, operation of every system or

installed component may not be necessary when the remaining operative

equipment can provide an acceptable level of safety.  A Master Minimum

Equipment List (MMEL) is developed by the FAA, with participation by the

aviation industry, to improve aircraft utilization and thereby provide

more convenient and economic air transportation for the public.  The FAA

approved MMEL includes those items of equipment related to airworthiness

and operating regulations and other items of equipment which the

Administrator finds may be inoperative and yet maintain an acceptable

level of safety by appropriate conditions and limitations;  it does not

contain obviously required items such as wings, flaps, and rudders.  The

MMEL is the basis for development of individual operator MELs which take

into consideration the operator's particular aircraft equipment

configuration and operational conditions. Operator MELs, for

administrative control, may include items not contained in the

MMEL;  however, relief for administrative control items must be

approved by the Administrator.  An operator's MEL may differ in

format from the MMEL, but cannot be less restrictive than the MMEL.

The individual operator's MEL, when approved and authorized, permits

operation of the aircraft with inoperative equipment.

Equipment not required by the operation being conducted and equipment in

excess of FAR requirements are included in the MEL with appropriate

conditions and limitations.  The MEL must not deviate from the Aircraft

Flight Manual Limitations, Emergency Procedures or with Airworthiness

Directives.  It is important to remember that all equipment related to

the airworthiness and the operating regulations of the aircraft not

listed on the MMEL must be operative.

Revision: 2

MASTER MINIMUM EQUIPMENT LIST

Date: 6/14/1989

CESSNA MODELS 406 AND F406

Preamble

(Effective 6/14/89)

Suitable conditions and limitations in the form of placards, maintenance

procedures, crew operating procedures and other restrictions as

necessary are specified in the MEL to ensure that an acceptable level of

safety is maintained.

The MEL is intended to permit operation with inoperative items of

equipment for a period of time until repairs can be accomplished.  It is

important that repairs be accomplished at the earliest opportunity.  In

order to maintain an acceptable level of safety and reliability the MMEL

establishes limitations on the duration of and conditions for operation

with inoperative equipment.  The MEL provides for release of the

aircraft for flight with inoperative equipment.  When an item of

equipment is discovered to be inoperative, it is reported by making an

entry in the Aircraft Maintenance Record/Logbook as prescribed by FAR.

The item is then either repaired or may be deferred per the MEL or other

approved means acceptable to the Administrator prior to further

operation.  MEL conditions and limitations, do not relieve the operator

from determining that the aircraft is in condition for safe operation

with items of equipment inoperative.

When these requirements are met, an Airworthiness Release, Aircraft

Maintenance Record/Logbook entry, or other approved documentation is

issued as prescribed by FAR.  Such documentation is required prior to

operation with any item of equipment inoperative.

Operators are responsible for exercising the necessary operational

control to ensure that an acceptable level of safety is maintained.

When operating with multiple inoperative items, the interrelationships

between those items and the effect on aircraft operation and crew

workload will be considered.

Operators are to establish a controlled and sound repair program

including the parts, personnel, facilities, procedures, and schedules to

ensure timely repair.

WHEN USING THE MEL, COMPLIANCE WITH THE STATED INTENT OF THE PREAMBLE,

DEFINITIONS, AND THE CONDITIONS AND LIMITATIONS SPECIFIED IN THE MEL IS

REQUIRED.

Guidelines for (O) & (M) Procedures

The FOEB has identified a need for certain procedures to provide an

adequate level of safety while providing relief for the following

items. These procedures must be established by the operator. The

following guidelines are to help establish these required procedures:

21-1/2/3/4 (M)  Procedure to assure that shutoff valves are closed.

22-1  (M)  Procedure to assure that no electrical or mechanical fault

exists that will have an adverse effect on any flight control

function.

22-2  (M)  Procedure to assure that no electrical or mechanical fault

exists that will have an adverse effect on any flight control

function.

23-4  (O)  Procedure to specify how passengers will be briefed.

27-1  (M)  Procedure to assure failure of electric trim will not

interfere with operation of manual trim.

28-3  (O)  Procedure to determine fuel quantity on board aircraft.

29-1  (M)  Procedure to assure that hydraulic pump failure will not

adversely affect engine operation or cause contamination or

failure of the hydraulic system.

31-2  (O)  Procedure to record elapsed flight time.

33-7  (O)  Procedure to brief passengers.

71-1  (M)  Procedure to assure the cowl flaps are secured to the trail

or full open position.
