What the Course is About

On the ground, an aircraft is considered “airworthy” when its “physical state matches its design”, and so it is considered to be in a good condition for a safe operation. However, you can also achieve an acceptable level of safety for an aircraft which has known failures –  and this is where the Minimum Equipment List (or MEL) comes in. The MEL is the operator’s tool which provides an approved way to determine the required conditions under which a flight can be commenced safely with inoperative equipment. 

The MEL is one of those documents which is used by all aircraft operator’s departments and so, everyone is expected to be knowledgeable about its use and limitations.

This course  follows EASA regulation, and covers most of the basic principles of MELs. It is aimed for aviation professionals who require a deeper understanding of how an MELs is put together, together with know-how for how to check and verify its contents against the MMEL.

This course is suited to supplement MEL training requirements as required by ORO.GEN.110(e) and its AMC.
