MEL Revisions

01. REVISIONS REQUESTED BY YOUR OPERATION DURING THE INITIAL CERTIFICATION PROCESS.
This is performed free of charge; however the operator must include ALL changes requested by the entire company in one request. We strongly encourage all principals in the organization compile their list of questions and requests in ONE submittal to Max Manuals. Multiple revision requests will result in additional charges (Please see revision costs below). ONE revision request is required in order to manage the costs of the product and save time in expediting the completed product to your operation.

02. REVISIONS REQUESTED BY YOUR FAA INSPECTOR DURING THE INITIAL CERTIFICATION PROCESS.

This is performed free of charge; however the FAA must include ALL changes requested by the POI, PMI, & PAI in one revision request. Multiple revision requests could result in additional charges. This type of revision is part of the certification process. Maximum Manuals understands that since the requirements could vary between FAA inspectors and also the different FAA Flight Standards District Office's we have a process to make applicable changes that your inspector may require.

03. WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE REVISION REQUEST BY YOUR ORGANIZATION OR THE FAA?

REVISIONS MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

The item that needs to be corrected clearly identified. The item to be corrected can be circled on a printed page from the MEL or identified by page number and MEL ATA number. The specific issue or concern clearly detailed and what corrective action is being required. If the corrective action is unknown, we can offer suggestions to present to your operation or your FSDO, however your input from you and your FAA is greatly appreciated to expedite this process. Your contact information (if different from what is indicated as the client contact you have on account, or if there are multiple names listed in your MM Account).

NOTE: This revision process is usually 1-5 business days to receive an amended copy, depending upon the revision requirement or current workload placed on our staff.

04. REVISIONS REQUIRED DUE TO CHANGES TO THE MASTER MEL (MMEL).
A revision to the MMEL will occur as either a STANDARD revision or an INTERIM revision. Standard revisions will be designated by a number change to the revision status. For example, the revision status may change from revision 8 to 9. Letter revisions are interim changes to the current revision number. For example, revision status 8 would become 8a when an interim revision occurs.

05. REVISION NOTIFICATION
Aircraft operators are normally notified via mail from the FAA when a revision has occurred to one of their MMEL manuals. This notification will include the revision type: letter or number and the current revision date. Max Manuals DOES provide an email notification to the person listed under the account name for all aircraft where an FAA MMEL has been posted. However, it is the operators' responsibility to ensure that they are aware of a revision to the MMEL. Most revisions will need to be accomplished and submitted to your FAA Inspector within 60 days.

06. REVISION PRICING
Within the first 90 days of your MEL purchase, there will be no charge for revisions resulting from the release of a required revision to the Master MEL. All other revisions are done at a flat rate or hourly cost depending on the nature of the revisions.
