Book Title :

Chapter Title :

Book IV Chapter 9
Summary of deficiency, proposed amendment and justification
Investigations by CAS revealed that RAAFSTT are teaching Technical trainees to perform Work area examinations (Zonal inspections) See attached document (21306).
The requirement to conduct Work Area Examinations/ Zonal inspections is not currently specified explicitly in maintenance OIP at an 'Air Force' level, particularly post maintenance. This is currently leading to an increase in ASRs where maintenance personnel are missing obvious damage/ FOD.
We suggest that the explicit inclusion of a requirement to conduct Work Area Examinations/ Zonal inspections be considered for inclusion in the AFCAMAN.
