can be found in the applicable maintenance manuals. Use of the alphabetical index in the applicable manual will facilitate locating the
required information.
2. MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES. The inspections prescribed by
this manual will be performed at specified periods by Aviation Unit
Maintenance (AVUM) activities with assistance of Aviation Intermediate Maintenance (AVIM) and Depot Maintenance activities when
required.
3.
GENERAL INFORMATION.
a.
The inspection requirements contained herein are stated
in such a manner as to establish what conditions are desired/undesired. Compliance with the provisions outlined herein is required in
order to assure that proper servicing has been accomplished and latent defects are discovered and corrected before malfunctioning or
serious trouble results. Inspection requirements are arranged, as
nearly as possible, according to the manner in which they will be
performed. The requirements are divided into groups under area
headings.
b.
The inspection intervals designated herein will not be
exceeded except in actual operational emergencies as explained
herein. It is the commander’s responsibility to determine (on
TM 55-1520-210-PMD
an individual aircraft basis) when inspection intervals may be exceeded. For this purpose, operational emergencies are conditions of
combat, or conditions of disaster which necessitate flight to evacuate
aircraft or personnel. When aircraft are operated beyond the normal
inspection due-time because of such emergency situations, a Circled
Red” X” status symbol, system, date and fault/remarks must be entered in Part I-Fault Information of DA Form 2408-13-1/2408-13-1-E
(Aircraft Inspection and Maintenance Record) until such time as the
inspection is complete. Since safety may be jeopardized when inspections are delayed to meet emergency requirements, commander will assure that the aircraft status symbol reverts to a Red “X”
and that delayed inspections are accomplished immediately upon
termination of the actual emergency. When unusual local conditions
of environment, utilization, mission, experience of flight crew and
maintenance personnel, periods of inactivity, etc., are encountered,
the maintenance officer will, at his discretion, increase the scope
and/or frequency of maintenance or inspections as necessary to ensure safe flight.
c.
This manual may contain inspection requirements applicable to specific equipment not installed on your aircraft. Those requirements should be disregarded.
d.
DA Form 2408-13-1/2408-13-1-E will be used to record all
deficiencies or shortcomings discovered during the inspection.
e.
A 1-½ inch space between each area of inspection is being
provided to allow insertion of additional inspection items as required
by local command inspection procedures.

4. SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. A Preventative Maintenance
Daily inspection is accomplished after the last flight of the mission
day, or prior to the first flight on the next mission day on which the
aircraft is flown. The inspection consists of visual examination and
operational checks to determine that the aircraft can safety and
efficiently perform the assigned mission.
5. REPORTING ERRORS AND RECOMMENDING IMPROVEMENTS.

This fine document...
Was brought to you by me:
Liberated Manuals -- free army and government manuals
Why do I do it? I am tired of sleazy CD-ROM sellers, who take publicly
available information, slap “watermarks” and other junk on it, and sell it.
Those masters of search engine manipulation make sure that their sites that
sell free information, come up first in search engines. They did not create it...
They did not even scan it... Why should they get your money? Why are not
letting you give those free manuals to your friends?
I am setting this document FREE. This document was made by the US
Government and is NOT protected by Copyright. Feel free to share,
republish, sell and so on.
I am not asking you for donations, fees or handouts. If you can, please
provide a link to liberatedmanuals.com, so that free manuals come up first in
search engines:
