United States
Special Federal Aviation Regulation
The Federal Aviation Administration published a
Special Federal Aviation Regulation providing regulatory
relief to persons who have been unable to comply with
certain training, recent experience, testing, and checking
requirements due to the coronavirus outbreak. The SFAR is
effective through March 31, 2021.
This relief allows operators to continue to use pilots and
other crew members in support of essential operations during
this period. Additionally, this SFAR provides regulatory relief
to certain persons and pilot schools unable to meet duration
and renewal requirements due to the outbreak. This rule also
allows certain air carriers and operators to fly temporary
overflow aircraft, a need resulting from the outbreak, to a
point of storage pursuant to a special flight permit with a
continuing authorization.
While predominately pilot/flight operations centric, there
are a few areas of relief that might be applicable to the AEA
membership, including:
Part 61
*	 Medical Certificates: Requirement and Duration (§ 61.23).
*	 Prerequisites for Practical Tests (§ 61.39).
*	 Renewal Requirements for Flight Instructor
Certification (§ 61.197).
Part 65
*	 Eligibility Requirements: General (§ 65.71).
*	 Inspection Authorization: Renewal (§ 65.93).

The following information is from the Federal
Aviation Administration Regulations.

Question:

Can a repair station manufacture a part as part of
maintenance?

Answer:

As with all regulations, words matter. 14 CFR
§21.9 does allow for the "fabrication" of an article
as long as it is consumed in the repair or alteration
of the contracted product. As a function of avionics
installations, every shop should be familiar with
the provisions to fabricate brackets, shelves and
instrument panels.
Contained within the provisions of 14 CFR
§21.9, the regulations permit a replacement
or modification article to be fabricated by an
appropriately rated certificate holder with a quality
system and consumed in the repair or alteration
of a product or article in accordance with Part 43.
(§21.9 (a) (6))
Note: This provision has three criteria:
