JDA provides new applicants assistance and guidance on the certification process for obtaining a new 14 CFR Part 145 Repair Station Certificate (RSC). JDA supports its clients through all phases of the repair station certificate process including:
JDA assists with the cover letter introducing the Pre-Application Statement of Intent (PASI) FAA Form 8400-6 for certification through the FAA Safety Assurance System (SAS) External Portal or as directed by the applicable FSDO/IFO/Flight Standards office.
After the PASI is received, the FAA will initiate the Certification Services Oversight Process (CSOP). JDA will assist with the following Phase 1 requirements:
Phase 1 ends when the FAA accepts the pre application package and requirements are met.
Prior to the development of the Formal application package (elements) JDA will visit the facility, evaluate the layout and work flow, interview prospective repair station personnel, identify and capture the proposed process intended to be used and where necessary, recommend procedures to comply with FAA regulations and guidance to enhance the certification project.
The formal application meeting is scheduled after the FAA receives all submissions required in the Pre-application Checklist (PAC). JDA assists the client in ensuring the completeness and accuracy of the PAC and the formal application “package” by helping the applicant complete:
Note: For a repair station located outside the territories of the U.S., § 145.51(d)(1) requires that the applicant must show the necessity for a Part 145 Air Agency Certificate and rating(s) (perceived need).
Phase 2 ends when the FAA accepts the formal application package and all requirements are met
The FAA evaluates the design of the applicant’s operating systems and manuals to ensure compliance with regulations and standards. The FAA may direct the applicant to complete all ED DCTs or perform a SAS template Custom DCT (C DCT); JDA will assist with this requirement and also revise the manual system following any comments provided by the FAA.
Prior to the Performance Assessment, JDA will provide on-site training for the repair station management and quality control personnel using the repair station procedures manual and quality control system to ensure the applicant can receive an article into the repair station and follow all the steps necessary for return to service. JDA will train and mentor the applicant’s key repair station personnel on the PA process
The FAA uses Performance DCTs to collect data to be to determine if the applicant’s systems are performing as intended and producing the desired results. This phase requires the applicant demonstrate methods and procedures to aid in the assessment of the system design.
Phases 3 and 4 ends when all DAs, PAs, or Custom DCTs have been successfully completed and all requirements have been met
This FAA completes all administrative functions including issuance of the Air Agency Certificate, OpSpecs, and the certification reports.
