Although the FAA has developed a risk-based assessment process for inspectors to identify areas of greatest concern at repair stations, the agency is emphasizing mandatory inspections and not high-risk areas, according to an audit conducted by the Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General and issued on May 1.

The audit examined 27 randomly selected repair stations in the U.S., Brazil, China, New Zealand, Peru and Singapore that maintain aircraft operated by U.S. Part 121 air carriers.

Fourteen charter operators and four auditing companies met early last month to discuss whether there should be a single audit standard for the charter and fractional-share industry. The meeting was organized by the Air Charter Safety Foundation, which developed the ACSF industry audit standard and is proposing that this be the sole standard used for auditing charter companies.
