Maximum Manuals of Carlsbad, Calif., has unveiled an automated online system that allows operators to create, purchase and receive minimum equipment list (MEL) and RVSM manuals in as few as two hours. Maximum Manuals has been developing the Smart Manual Process for the past two years and the system has been undergoing testing with operators that have submitted newly created manuals to FAA FSDOs for review. These manuals received positive feedback from FAA inspectors, according to the company.
Maximum Manuals launched an Internet-based minimum equipment list (MEL) generator that provides same-day MELs customized to the individual client and aircraft. The online system allows clients to choose their aircraft and manual preference, supply basic aircraft information and submit the manual for completion. MELs can be ready in three hours, Maximum Manuals president Doug Taylor told AIN.
