Policies, standards, and recommendations relating to the aircraft leasing lifecycle, from delivery/redelivery conditions to aircraft parts replacement and back-to-birth records developed by the Aircraft Leasing Technical Group (ALTG).
The 4th edition of Guidance Material and Best Practices for Aircraft Leases (pdf) provides information about all aspects related to aircraft leases with focus on the technical perspective. The manual covers the entire aircraft leasing cycle, from common misunderstandings, legal considerations and insurance to lease-related processes and areas of attention at delivery and redelivery of an aircraft.
IATA’s Guidance Material and Best Practices for LLPs Traceability (pdf) covers all topics that play a role in back-to-birth traceability of aircraft life-limited parts (LLPs). The document is primarily for a technical audience (engineers working at the airline technical/engineering departments as well as technical representatives from leasing companies, parts providers & distributors). It explores key challenges facing the industry with regards to capturing data/information and gathering support documentation to enable tracking of LLPs, and provides a methodology.
Incident Clearance Statement
The purpose of the incident clearance statement (ICS) is to remove the focus from whether or not an aircraft/engine/part has been subjected to an accident or incident and instead declare that the aircraft/engine/part has been deemed acceptable for continued use.
Two document templates have been designed, one to cater for aircraft, the other for engines. These documents are intended to act as an industry acceptable common standard having relevance for the requirements of the commercial aviation industry.
