interval of 50 hours or more is 5 hours.

For example, if an

inspection has an interval of 75 hours and is due at 1609.4 aircraft

hours the tolerance window starts at 1604.4 hours and ends at 1614.4

hours.

If the inspection is completed anywhere in that hour range

(1604.4 -- 1614.4) the next inspection due time will be 1684.4 (1609.4

+ 75 = 1684.4) aircraft hours.

tolerance window are out of scheduled sequence for that specific

period.

If the inspection is completed outside of the tolerance

window the next inspection due time will be obtained by adding the

inspection interval to the hours on the aircraft when the inspection

was completed.

For example, if an inspection with a 50-flight hour

interval is due at 1306.4 (tolerance window of 1301.4 to 1311.4 hours)

and the inspection is completed at 1299.9, the next inspection due

time will be 1349.9 (1299.9 + 50 = 1349.9) aircraft hours.

Tolerance window for calendar based special inspections

(inspection due dates entered in block 8 of a DA Form 2408-18 must

include the day, month and year for all calendar inspections):

(1) The tolerance window for inspections with an interval of less

than 12 months (300 days) is obtained by multiplying the number of

days in the inspection interval by 10 per cent.

For example, the

tolerance for a six-month interval would be plus or minus 18 days (180

Therefore, if the inspection due date is 31 January

frame (13 Jan -- 18 Feb) the next inspection due date will be 31 July

1999.

(2) The tolerance window for inspections with an interval of 12

months or more (over 300 days) is 30 days.

For example, an inspection

with an interval of 12 months and is due on 6 February 1999 the

tolerance window starts on 7 January 1999 and ends 8 March 1999. If

the inspection is completed anywhere in that time frame (7 Jan -- 8
