AERONAUTICAL ITEMS USED FOR MAINTENANCE TRAINING
Items used for technical training of ground
maintenance personnel are defined as follows:
a. Maintenance Training Aircraft. Aircraft used for technical
training, and evaluations that do not require airborne operations.
They are restricted from any type of flight. Maintenance training
aircraft are classified in two categories:
Aircraft. Temporarily grounded aircraft that
can be used for ground run operations. They will be maintained per
applicable publications, and must be capable of being returned to
full flyable status at the AVUM/AVIM level with, all inspections,
maintenance, and required
completed within 60 working days.
Aircraft. Grounded aircraft that can be used
for ground run operations, if all required equipment and components,
are installed and functioning properly. They may be returned to
flight status only after depot level overhaul.
b. Maintenance Training Airframe (MTA). Condemned aircraft used
to train maintenance personnel, or equipment validation procedures.
These aircraft are retired, or damaged and/or deteriorated beyond the
authorized expenditure limits.
Fabricated Airframe Training Device (FATD). Training devices
that have been constructed under specific contract statements of work
to conform to the needs of the aircraft maintenance training
d. Structural Training Device. Normally "pieces" of aircraft;
such as, wing, tail boom, cabin, or empennage. Used by students for
Dynamic Training Device.
Component mock-ups, cut-aways, and
f. Isolated Aeronautical Training Element
modules that are being used separately for training purposes.
This section establishes standards for management
and control of aircraft, and other aviation related items used for
aircraft maintenance technical training. Training aircraft,
and other training devices will be maintained per AR 750-1,
all applicable publications, and this manual.
