Inspection Authorization (IA)
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) initiated the issuance of the Inspection Authorization (IA) more than 35 years ago. This allowed qualified mechanics the privilege of performing certain inspections has served well in the maintenance of the U.S. Civil Fleet. The attainment of an IA and performance of the duties of that certificate greatly enhance the privileges and responsibilities of the aircraft mechanic. The IA permits the Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) mechanic to perform a greater variety of maintenance and alterations than any other single maintenance entity. So now is the time to get FAR Part 65.91: Applicants must meet FAR Part 65.91, which includes:
Possessing a &P rating for (3) three years, and being engaged in maintaining aircraft for 2 years prior to the date of your application.
Having a fixed base of operation.
Having the equipment, facilities, and inspection data available to properly perform Inspection Authorization (IA) duties and functions.
