listed item inoperative.

"Inoperative" means a system and/or component malfunction to

the extent that it does not accomplish its intended purpose

and/or is not consistently functioning normally within its

approved operating limit(s) or tolerance(s).

"Notes:" in Column 4 provides additional information for

crewmember or maintenance consideration.

Notes are used to

identify applicable material which is intended to assist with

compliance, but do not relieve the operator of the responsibility

for compliance with all applicable requirements.

Notes are not a

part of the provisos.

Inoperative components of an inoperative system:

Inoperative items which are components of a system which is

inoperative are usually considered components directly associated

with and having no other function than to support that system.

(Warning/caution systems associated with the inoperative system

must be operative unless relief is specifically authorized per

the MMEL).

"Deactivated" and "Secured" means that the specified

component must be put into an acceptable condition for safe

flight.

An acceptable method of securing or deactivating will be

established by the operator.

"Visual Flight Rules" (VFR) is as defined in FAR Part 91.

This precludes a pilot from filing an Instrument Flight Rules

(IFR) flight plan.

"Visual Meteorological Conditions" (VMC) means the

atmospheric environment is such that would allow a flight to

proceed under the visual flight rules applicable to the flight.

This does not preclude operating under Instrument Flight Rules.

"Visible Moisture" means an atmospheric environment

containing water in any form that can be seen in natural or

artificial light; for example, clouds, fog, rain, sleet, hail, or

snow.

DOUGLAS

(MD-11)

|

|

Some Douglas 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.

Monitoring (ECAM) provide different levels of system condition

|

messages (WARNING, CAUTION, STATUS, and ADVISORY). A-320/319/

|

, A-330, and A-340 also provide MAINTENANCE status messages. |

|

Any message that effects airplane dispatchability will normally |

be at the WARNING, CAUTION or STATUS level. MAINTENANCE

|

messages (A-320/319/321, 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-320/319/321) or CMS (A-330/A-340) interrogation. The systems |

are designed to be fault tolerant, however for any MAINTENANCE

|

status (Class II) message, the A-320/319/321 MEL must be

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.

|

"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.

"***" symbol in Column 1 indicates an item which is not

required by regulation but which may have been installed on some

models of aircraft covered by this MMEL.

This item may be

included on the operator's MEL after the approving office has

determined that the item has been installed on one or more of the

operator's aircraft.

The symbol, however, shall not be carried

forward into the operator's MEL.

It should be noted that neither

this policy nor the use of this symbol provide authority to

install or remove an item from an aircraft.

"Excess Items" means those items that have been installed

that are redundant to the requirements of the FARs.

MASTER MINIMUM EQUIPMENT LIST

Date: 06/14/89

STOL - MODEL UC-1 (TWIN BEE)

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.

MASTER MINIMUM EQUIPMENT LIST

Date: 06/14/89

STOL - MODEL UC-1 (TWIN BEE)

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.

Procedures to assure no fuel leak or mechanical/electrical

fault will cause a fire or additional damage.

Procedures to record heater operating time.

Procedure to assure that electrical or mechanical fault

will not have any adverse effect on the flight control

system.

Procedure to brief passengers by alternate means.

Procedure for recording aircraft time for maintenance

purposes.

Procedures for parking and securing aircraft without

parking brake.
