1. System Definitions.

System numbers are based on the Air Transport Association (ATA) Specification Number 100 and items are numbered sequentially.

a. "Item" (Column 1) means the equipment, system, component, or function listed in the "Item" column.

b. "Number Installed" (Column 2) is the number (quantity) of items normally installed in the aircraft. This number represents the aircraft configuration considered in developing this MMEL. Should the number be a variable (e.g., passenger cabin items) a number is not required.

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 required for type certification and approved by the responsible FAA Aircraft Certification Office. The FAA approved AFM/RFM for the specific aircraft is listed on the applicable Type Certificate Data Sheet.

3. "As required by FAR" means that the listed item is subject to certain provisions (restrictive or permissive) expressed in the Federal Aviation Regulations operating rules. The number of items required by the FAR must be operative. When the listed item is not required by FAR it may be inoperative for the time specified by repair category.

4. Each inoperative item must be placarded to inform and remind the crewmembers and maintenance personnel of the equipment condition.

22. Repair Intervals: All users of an MEL approved under FAR 121, 125, 129 and 135 must effect repairs of inoperative systems or components, deferred in accordance with the MEL, at or prior to the repair times established by the following letter designators:

Category A. Items in this category shall be repaired within the time interval specified in the remarks column of the operator's approved MEL.

Category B. Items in this category shall be repaired within three (3) consecutive calendar days (72 hours), excluding the day the malfunction was recorded in the aircraft maintenance record/logbook. For example, if it were recorded at 10 a.m. on January 26th, the three day interval would begin at midnight the 26th and end at midnight the 29th.

Category C. Items in this category shall be repaired within ten (10) consecutive calendar days (240 hours), excluding the day the malfunction was recorded in the aircraft maintenance record/logbook. For example, if it were recorded at 10 a.m. on January 26th, the 10 day interval would begin at midnight the 26th and end at midnight February 5th.

Category D. Items in this category shall be repaired within one hundred and twenty (120) consecutive calendar days (2880 hours), excluding the day the malfunction was recorded in the aircraft maintenance log and/or record.

The letter designators are inserted adjacent to Column 2.

23. Electronic fault alerting system – General

New generation aircraft display system fault indications to the flight crew by use of computerized display systems. Each aircraft manufacturer has incorporated individual design philosophies in determining the data that would be represented. The following are customized definitions (specific to each manufacturer) to help determine the level of messages affecting the aircraft's dispatch status.  When preparing the MEL document, operators are to select the proper Definition No. 23 for their aircraft, if appropriate.

BOEING (B-757/767, B-747-400, B-777)

Boeing airplanes equipped with Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting Systems (EICAS) provide different priority levels of system messages (WARNING, CAUTION, ADVISORY, STATUS and MAINTENANCE).  Any messages that affects airplane dispatch status will be displayed at a STATUS message level or higher. The absence of an EICAS STATUS or higher level (WARNING, CAUTION, ADVISORY) indicates that the system/component is operating within its approved operating limits or tolerances.

DEFINITIONS

System conditions that result only in a maintenance level message, i.e. no correlation with a higher level EICAS message, do not affect dispatch and do not require action other than as addressed within an operator’s standard maintenance program.

b. Boeing (B-717, MD-10, MD-11)

These aircraft are equipped with an alerting function which is a subsystem within the Electronic Instrument System (EIS). The alerting function provides various levels of system condition alerts (WARNING, CAUTION, ADVISORY, MAINTENANCE and STATUS)

Alerts that affect aircraft dispatch will include WARNING, CAUTION, STATUS or MAINTENANCE level. MAINTENANCE alerts are displayed on the status page of the EIS display panel under the maintenance heading.

A MAINTENANCE alert on the EIS indicates the presence of a system fault which can be identified by the Central Fault Display System (CFDS) interrogation. The systems are designed to be fault tolerant, however, for any MAINTENANCE alert, the MEL must be verified for dispatch purposes.

c. AIRBUS (A-300-600, A-310, A-318/320/319/321, A-330, A-340)

Airbus aircraft equipped with Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitoring (ECAM) provide different levels of system condition messages (WARNING, CAUTION, STATUS, and ADVISORY). A-318/320/319/ 321, A-330, and A-340 also provide MAINTENANCE status messages.

Any message that affects airplane dispatchability will normally be at the WARNING, CAUTION or STATUS level. MAINTENANCE messages (A-318/319/320/321, A-330, and A-340 only) are also indicated on ECAM Status Page below the white Maintenance label.

A MAINTENANCE status (Class II) message on ECAM indicates the presence of a system fault which can be identified by CFDS (A-318/319/320/321) or CMS (A-330/A- 340) interrogation. The systems are designed to be fault tolerant. For A- 318/319/320/321, MAINTENANCE STATUS (Class II) do not affect dispatch but are listed in the MMEL.  Dispatch is allowed without specific conditions except for:

-  BLUE RSVR MAINTENANCE status:  If applicable, and

-  AIR BLEED MAINTENANCE status: As applicable.

For the A-330 and A-340, MAINTENANCE status messages do not affect dispatch.

d.  FOKKER (FK-100)

Fokker aircraft are equipped with Multi Function Display System (MFDS) which provides electronic message referring to the different priority levels of system information (WARNING (red), CAUTION (amber), AWARENESS (cyan) AND STATUS (white).  Any messages that affects aircraft dispatch will be at the WARNING, CAUTION or AWARENESS level.  In these cases the MEL must be verified for dispatch capability and maintenance may be required.

System conditions that only require maintenance are not ¦presented on the flight deck. These maintenance indications/messages may be presented on the Maintenance & Test Panel (MAP) or the Centralized Fault Display Unit (CFDU) and by dedicated Built in Test Evaluation (BITE) of systems.

e.  CANADAIR  (CL-65, CL-604)

Canadair aircraft equipped with Engine Indication and Crew Alerting Systems (EICAAS) provide four classes of messages (WARNING, CAUTION, ADVISORY, and STATUS). Any message that affects aircraft dispatch will be at the WARNING, CAUTION, or STATUS level.

System conditions that only require maintenance are not visible to the flight crew.  These maintenance indications/messages are only activated by maintenance personnel using the Maintenance Diagnostics Computer.

f.  EMBRAER (EMB-135/145, ERJ-170 Series)

The EMB-135/145 and ERJ-170/190 are equipped with an Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) that provides three different message levels:  WARNING, CAUTION, and ADVISORY.  The ERJ-170/190 Series add STATUS messages.

Failures that effect dispatchability are presented to the flight crew at one of these levels. Other failures may be presented only to the maintenance personnel on the Multi Function Display (MFD) maintenance pages or through the download of the Central Maintenance Computer (CMC).  System conditions that result only in a maintenance level message, i.e. no correlation with a higher level EICAS message, do not affect dispatch and do not require action other than as addressed within an operator’s standard maintenance program.

g.  GULFSTREAM (G-IV, G-V, GV-SP, and GIV-X)

Gulfstream airplanes equipped with EICAS provide different priority levels of system messages:  WARNING (red), CAUTION (amber), ADVISORY, STATUS and MAINTENANCE (cyan or blue).  Any WARNING or CAUTION message affects airplane dispatch status and requires that the Airplane Flight Manual or the MEL be used to determine dispatch capability.  STATUS messages which indicate a system failure (e.g., FMS-1 fail) require that the Airplane Flight Manual or the MEL be used to determine dispatch capability.  Maintenance messages do not affect airplane dispatch status.  They indicate the presence of a system fault which can be identified by Maintenance Data Acquisition Unit (MDAU on the G-V) interrogation, Central Maintenance Computer (CMC on the GV-SP/GIV-X) interrogation or by reference to the Airplane Flight Manual.

h.  De- HAVILLAND (DASH 8 SERIES 400)

Series 400 aircraft are equipped with a Caution/Warning Panel that annunciates all cautions and warnings.  Advisory messages are displayed by the Electronic Indication System (EIS) or individual advisory lights supplied in the cockpit.

“Class 1 failures” are failures that prevent continued operation of a specific Line Replacement Unit or channel and are annunciated via advisory messages:  caution, warning or advisory lights in the flight compartment.  Dispatch with such posted failures are to be in accordance with the MMEL.

“Class 2 failures” are failures which do not prevent continued system function.  These faults will not be annunciated to the flight crew and the absence of the higher level alert (warning, caution, advisory) indicates that the system/component is operating within its approved operating limits or tolerances.  Such faults would be evident during maintenance interrogation performed during maintenance activities.  Class 2 faults do not affect dispatch and will be listed in the Fault Isolation Manual (FIM).  Class 2 faults will be left to the discretion of the operators when these faults are to be rectified.

24. "Administrative control item" means an item listed by the operator in the MEL for tracking and informational purposes. It may be added to an operator's MEL by approval of the Principal Operations Inspector provided no relief is granted, or provided conditions and limitations are contained in an approved document (i.e. Structural Repair Manual, airworthiness directive, etc.). If relief other than that granted by an approved document is sought for an administrative control item, a request must be submitted to the Administrator. If the request results in review and approval by the FOEB, the item becomes an MMEL item rather than an administrative control item.

PREAMBLE

(07/05/1990)

This preamble is applicable to, and will be included in, master minimum equipment lists (MMEL) issued under the provisions of Section 91.30(a) NEW Section 91.213(a)(2).It is not applicable to MMEL's issued under the provisions of Parts 121, 125, 129, and 135 of the FAR.

Except as provided in Section 91.30(d) NEW Section 91.213(d), or under the provisions of an approved MMEL, all equipment installed on an aircraft in compliance with the airworthiness standards or operating rules must be operative. Experience has shown that with the various levels of redundancy designed into modern aircraft, operation of every system or component installed may not be necessary when the remaining equipment can provide an acceptable level of safety.

An 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 only those items of equipment which the Administrator finds may be inoperative and yet maintain an acceptable level of safety by appropriate conditions and limitations. The MMEL and FAA-issued letter of authorization are used as an MEL by an operator and permit operation of the aircraft with inoperative equipment.

The MMEL includes all items of installed equipment that are permitted to be inoperative. Equipment required by the FAR, and optional equipment in excess of FAR requirements, is included with appropriate conditions and limitations. For each listed item, the installed equipment configuration considered to be normal for the aircraft is specified. Items of equipment installed on aircraft (except for passenger convenience items such as galley equipment and passenger entertainment devices), such as "TCAS," windshear detection devices, and ground proximity warning systems (GPWS) that are in excess of what is required, and are not listed on the MMEL, must be operational for dispatch unless MMEL relief is sought through the FSDO having jurisdiction for the operator. If MMEL relief is sought, the operator must notify the FSDO who will make a request of the FOEB to convene and consider adding the equipment to the MMEL. The operator may then dispatch with the equipment disabled, or rendered inoperative, in accordance with all FAR. It is incumbent on the operator to endeavor to determine if O and/or M procedures for that equipment must be developed. If so, any procedures developed must comply with all FAR. Procedures developed to use the MMEL must not conflict with either the aircraft flight manual limitations, emergency procedures, or with airworthiness directives (AD), all of which take precedence over the MMEL and those procedures.

PREAMBLE

(07/05/1990)

Suitable conditions and limitations in the form of placards, maintenance procedures, crew operating procedures, and other restrictions, as necessary, are required to be accomplished by the operator to ensure that an acceptable level of safety is maintained. Those procedures should be developed from guidance provided in the manufacturer's aircraft flight and/or maintenance manuals, manufacturer's recommendations, engineering specifications, and other appropriate sources. Procedures must not be contrary to any FAR. Wherever the statement "as required by FAR" appears in the MMEL, the operator must either list the specific FAR by part and section and carry the FAR on board the aircraft or specify the requirements and/or limitations to conduct the flight in accordance with the appropriate FAR.

The MMEL is intended to permit operations with inoperative items of equipment for the minimum period of time necessary until repairs can be accomplished. It is important that repairs be accomplished at the earliest opportunity in order to return the aircraft to its design level of safety and reliability. Inoperative equipment in all cases must be repaired, or inspected and deferred, by qualified maintenance personnel at the next required inspection Section 91.165(c), NEW Section 91.405(c). The repair intervals indicated by the Letters A, B, and C inserted adjacent to column 2 are NOT applicable to this MMEL.

The MMEL 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 records. The item is then either repaired or deferred per the MMEL or other approved means acceptable to the Administrator prior to further operation. In addition to the specific MMEL conditions and limitations, determination by the operator that the aircraft is in condition for safe operations under anticipated flight conditions must be made for all items of inoperative equipment. When these requirements are met, the aircraft may be considered airworthy and returned to service. 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 interrelationship between those items, and the effect on aircraft operation and crew workload, must be considered. Operators are expected to establish a controlled and sound repair program, including the parts, personnel, facilities, procedures, and schedules to ensure timely repair.

WHEN USING THE MMEL, COMPLIANCE WITH THE STATED INTENT OF THE PREAMBLE, DEFINITIONS, CONDITIONS, AND LIMITATIONS SPECIFIED IN THE MMEL IS REQUIRED.
