Aircraft subject to EASA regulations must be maintained to an Aircraft Maintenance Programme (AMP).
EASA has published an AMP template and Minimum Inspection Programmes for non-complex aircraft. More information is available in Aircraft Maintenance Programmes for ELA1 aircraft not used in Commercial Operations.
This template should be used in conjunction with the Minimum Inspection Programme, or the manufacturer's recommended programme so long as that programme is not less rigorous than EASA's MIP. For light helicopters, the MPLA-H may still be used.
EASA AMP template and Minimum Inspection Programme
EASA AMP Template applicable to non-complex Aeroplanes, (powered) sailplanes and balloons
The Minimum Inspection Programmes, as provided for in M.A.302(h) are available here:
Minimum Inspection Programme - Aeroplanes
Minimum Inspection Programme - Sailplanes and Powered Sailplanes
Minimum Inspection Programme - Balloons
MPLA-H Applicable to Helicopters
Owners/Operators should submit a customised AMP to the IAA for approval at the time of applying to register an aircraft, or, for ELA1 aircraft, when they so choose, use a "Self-Declared" AMP.
Maintenance Programmes which were approved by the IAA and are based on superseded templates remain valid.
Which aircraft are affected?
Single and twin piston engine aircraft, sailplanes and single piston engine helicopters below 2,730 Kg Maximum Take-Off Mass (MTOM) operating on a Certificate of Airworthiness and subject to European Regulations.
Note: The EASA AMP template is not applicable to Annex II aircraft, Aircraft and Helicopters not affected by the EASA Regulations.
In accordance with Section M.A.201 of the regulation (1321/2014) the owner is responsible for the continuing airworthiness of the aircraft and shall ensure that:
- The aircraft is maintained in an airworthy condition;
- Any operational and emergency equipment fitted is correctly installed and serviceable;
- The Airworthiness Review Certificate remains valid;
- The maintenance of the aircraft is performed in accordance with the Aircraft Maintenance Programme (AMP);
- The owner may contract the above to a CAMO.
