AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE ENGINEERS LOGBOOK

FOREWORD
This logbook has been developed by PCAA in its current format as the required means of recording aircraft practical maintenance experience in
order to support an application to PCAA for the issue or amendment/change of an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence (AML).

The format and layout of the logbook is designed to enable a methodical and progressive recording of personal data and ongoing work experience
by the user, thereby enabling a quicker and more accurate assessment of the candidates technical knowledge and experience by PCAA.

Used correctly, this logbook should serve as a compact and portable reference document, which would hold a concise history of the holders
training, experience, qualification and employment record, together with a facility to record any ongoing work experience as may be required for
the purpose of applying to the authority for the issue or change of an Aircraft Maintenance Engineers License (AML).

The design and content of this logbook have been derived from current regulatory requirements. However, please note that completion of this
logbook does not preclude the need to produce original documents, such as employment testimonials, training certificates or certified true copies
of the same, where these may be required.

Issuance of this logbook has canceled/superseded any other experience logbook issued before.

General Information
All entries in this logbook shall be made using ball point.
Dates entered shall follow the format DD/MM/YY.
Each page shall be identified by the logbook owners name and signature.
When used in support of an application for a license, any false entry in the logbook will constitute an offence under the legislation currently
in force.

Completion of the logbook


Entries in the logbook are made by 3 categories of persons:

1. The Logbook Holder (Candidate/Technician/Engineer)


It is important to note that engineers may not certify their own entries. However, certain pages require the name and signature of the logbook
holder. This is primarily for traceability and identification purposes, particularly when logbook pages are separated from the logbook and used in
isolation.

2. The basic task supervisor (Section 2.1 Basic Skills)


The basic task supervisor may be any one of the following:
(a) A person appropriately qualified as Basic training Practical Instructor/Assessor (PI/PA) in accordance with the requirements of AWNOT-
079 and duly authorized by the organization for the task(s).
(b) An appropriately qualified licensed aircraft maintenance engineer or shop approval holder employed by an ANO-145/ANO-001
maintenance organization and authorized by the quality unit of organization for the task(s).

AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE ENGINEERS LOGBOOK

Section 2.1 Basic Skills


This section is to record the achievement of practical competencies required to support the issue of a basic AML in the appropriate category. The
skills identified in this section relate directly to corresponding AML privileges. The required training may be carried out on in-service aircraft, in
workshops, out of service aircraft, on training equipment or on simulators.
Training on these basic skills can also be carried out during the conduct of approved basic course in relevant category. For this purpose, ANO-
147 approved MTOs can introduce these skills in the workshop or OJT element(s) of basic course.
Each entry must be confirmed by the supervisor, with his/her signature, approval number, position & organization details, to indicate that the
logbook holder has achieved the required competence on the subject. A specific task should only be entered once. There is no requirement to
make multiple entries for the same or similar tasks.

Section 3.1 Maintenance Experience


This section is to record experience gained on in-service aircraft for the purpose to claim Basic experience requirements (Para 66.A.30) for
the issuance of Basic AML and/or maintenance experience for type rating application. The type and range of tasks undertaken must reflect the
requirements ANO-066 in respect of the category and/or type rating applied for. Work task details should be recorded by the logbook holder on
completion of the task and countersigned by the task supervisor as soon as practicable after completion of the task. The supervisor will append
his/her name, signature, approval number to the record to indicate that the task has been carried out correctly under his/her direct supervision.
A specific task can only be entered once. There is no requirement to make multiple entries for the same or similar tasks.

Section 3.2 Typical Maintenance Tasks


This section gives examples of typical maintenance tasks, which may be undertaken. It is not an exhaustive list and may be added to in order to
support an application for an aircraft maintenance engineer license (AML).
The type and number of tasks undertaken must be representative of the aircraft structure and systems, both in terms of technology and complexity.
While relatively simple tasks may be included, other more complex tasks appropriate to the privileges of the license applied for should also be
undertaken and recorded.

Section 3.3 Glossary


This Section contains a Glossary of abbreviations used in Section 3.2. Abbreviations and their meaning may vary between manufacturers, hence
excessive use of these in compiling work records is not recommended.
