Customized Part 135 / 145 Vendor Training

aviation training

As a FAA Part 135 Operator or an 145 Service maintenance provider you may find it difficult to qualify vendors to work on your outsourced articles or aircraft.

A charter operation may need one of their aircraft serviced at a remote location.  Before that can happen the 3rd party vendor must have training in your GMM procedures, RII procedures, AWR procedures and maybe RVSM.

On the other hand a Part 145 may also have to qualify their 3rd party vendors through training on their quality systems.

Part 145 Start Up Consulting

Information for starting up a Part 145 Repair Station generally starts with the Flight Standards Information Management System, specifically Volume 2 Chapter 11 “Certification of Title 14 CFR Part 145  (Start with 8900.1 Contents).Usually starting up a Part 145 Repair Station is the same from one district to the next, with the exception of the intial steps of contacting your local FSDO. All FSDOs will require a PASI form, a Repair Station Manual / Quality Control Manual, a Training Program Manual and a Letter of Compliance.  Contact Blue Tuna for help with these. We will work in all the FSDOs within the United States as well as foreign repair stations.  (Contact Us for help with writing the manuals or consulting for the entire project).Here are the relevant Advisory Circulars:
