The following information is from the Federal
Aviation Regulations and Advisory Circular 145-9.

QUESTION:

Does a repair station need to employ an airframe
and powerplant mechanic with an inspection
authorization?

ANSWER:

No. The IA is an authorization needed when
working outside of a repair station but isn't
necessary when working inside a repair station.
Section 43.3 (e) authorized a repair station to
perform maintenance, preventive maintenance
and alterations as provided in Part 145. And
Section 43.7 (c) further authorizes a repair station
to approve an aircraft, airframe, aircraft engine,
propeller, appliance, or component part for
return to service after maintenance, preventive
maintenance or alteration as provided in Part 145.
Section 145.201 (a) (3) authorizes a repair
station to approve for return to service any
article for which it is rated after it has performed
maintenance, preventive maintenance or an
alteration in accordance with Part 43.

News & Regulatory Updates
New minister of
transportation appointed
With the federal election in October 2015
completed, a changing of the guard occurred
bringing about a new look and feel to the
government of Canada. There was a promise of

Section 145.201 (c) (2) further states that
a repair station may not approve for return to
service any article after a major repair or major
alteration unless the major repair or major
alteration was performed in accordance with
applicable approved technical data.
Part 145 Subpart D, Personnel, requires that
supervisors and individuals with return to service
authority "be appropriately certificated as a
mechanic or repairman under Part 65." The IA is
not a "certificate" but rather an "authorization" to
a certificated mechanic.
Under Part 65, a certificated mechanic holding
an inspection authorization may inspect and
approve for return to service any aircraft or
related part or appliance (except any aircraft
maintained in accordance with a continuous
airworthiness program under Part 121 of this
chapter) after a major repair or major alteration
to it in accordance with Part 43, if the work was
done in accordance with technical data approved
by the administrator (ยง 65.95 (1)).
So, no, there is nothing in the regulations that
requires a repair station to have an A&P mechanic
with IA authority. At a minimum, the repair
station must have a supervisor and persons with
return to service authority who are appropriately
certificated as a mechanic or repairman under
Part 65. However, this does not prohibit any
repair station who chooses to set a staffing
standard higher than the minimum standards of
the regulations to employ an A&P mechanic with
IA authority.

significant change to the way the government
operates - to be more open, to be more inclusive
and to promote the programs that will improve
the middle class. The new cabinet was introduced,
which included a reduction in the number of
ministers; however, the role of the transport
minister and infrastructure minister was divided
between two cabinet ministers. Marc Garneau was
appointed the minister of transport.
