Be very, very careful of the export restrictions on technical data. It doesn't matter if it's current or not. You technically can't even give it away until you verify the citizenship of the receiver.

Yeah, I have to agree with Avioniker on this one. As somebody who works with CMMs and Aircraft IPLs on a daily basis, I'm reminded by manufacturers (component and aircraft alike) that these are proprietary information and cannot be shared with anyone.

You can get yourself into some hot water for even advertising that you have them if you're not supposed to.

In my dealings, anything that is printed by the manufacturer, regardless of content, is not allowed to be distributed to an unapproved source.

I'm not sure about training manuals, because I have limited no experience with them, but from CMMs, AMMs, SB's, Service Letters and TRs, nothing is to leave our facility without consent from the manufacturer.

I would imagine that Boeing would not want an approved training manual, current or not, distributed to anyone that isn't approved.

See, the thing is, Boeing would probably charge a BOATLOAD of money to someone for that same manual. I can think of a couple of OEMs that charge ridiculous amounts of money, like $15K+ for Temporary Revisions alone (1-2 pages.)

If you're distributing them, you're taking easy money out of their pocket.

Help me with this, where in the above does it say I want to sell them? Where in the above does it say I want to distribute copies? Where does it say I want to export them? Where does it say that I have them but am not supposed to? Where does it say that I will be providing revisions? Where does it say that I have CMMs, AMMs, SB's, Service Letters and TRs available to a good home? Ladies and Gentlemen, it says none of that. I figured some young enthusiasts punk would be interested in them in exchange for a couple safety cards or 'junior captain' wings, but no, the killjoys have come out and rained on this parade.

Training Manuals only Impart Information for Passing Approved training courses.While working on Aircraft other Documents like AMMs are reffered.So why should there be a restriction on someone reading a copy of the training Manual,as long as there is no copy being made.

Right there. You just offered to distribute a training manual to an unapproved source. It doesn't matter if you sell, trade or give intellectual property to another party. It all falls into the "distribution" category.

But, if you still think I'm "raining on your parade" I can call my contacts at Boeing Lit and have them explain to you which laws you'd be breaking.

By the way, despite the fact that you "turn wrenches on the big 'uns," those manuals don't belong to you. They were given to you by your airline. Ask your techlit department if you were allowed to take them home. My guess is no, they should have never left the hangar.

Quite ironically these 'distribution' rules are broken every hour of every day, within the aviation industry, due to the very nature of the business. The manufacturers are just as guilty as the airlines!!!!

If these rules were followed to the letter, the industry would ground to a halt very quickly indeed!

Need your views on this Senario.
Presuming "A" attended an Approved training course with his Airline concerned & was given Training notes to study for Passing the exams.
On completion if "A" gives those books to "B" who is also an Employee of that Airline but is not Eligible for training until another year,but needed those books to study.Should "A" give the Books to "B" or NOT.

I can see your point and there should be an element of common sense when disposing of such material.

Most training materials over the past 15 years or so have been produced and distributed by 3rd Parties. Despite the 'rules', there are literally no controls in place for these materials, so its impossible to 'trace' the ownership of these documents.

Of course 'controlled' documents such as AMMS, CMMs, IPCs, AFMs etc etc are completely different, as you previously pointed out. I've got first hand experience over the draconian measures surrounding these documents.

Hawk, first offf, I don't want to come across as an expert on intellectual property or even maintenance and training manuals.

But, in the context you're asking, I wouldn't think there would be a problem in passing manuals between two employees of an authorized user (operator.)

Just like I said, I believe the owner/operator of the aircraft is the owner of the manual and can distribute the manuals for use within the company. However, I do not believe they are authorized to make copies of the manuals for distribution to employees. Generally, OEMs and aircraft manufacturers give the manuals to operators with very strict rules. I know that we, as a repair station, are told outright by the agreements we sign with manufacturers that the manuals are not to be copied, distributed to anyone outside our company, nor are they allowed to leave the premises.

So, to reiterate, I can't imagine that Boeing (for example) would be too uptight about "A" giving training materials to "B" if they both work for the same airline.

I can see the case for the 767 manuals, but the Vickers Viscount? No. That is an airplane that was produced in the '40s and '50s and according to A.net, only 3 were known to be in service in 2004, all in Africa. I think it would be very interesting to read through those old manuals.

In most organizations up here the manuals do not come from Boeing,,,,,,,Our manuals for B737 and B727 were produced 100% in house and say for training purposes only. Not to be used in place of the approved MM...They are not even copyrighted.


Now I took my B727 From flightcraft......I do not work for Flightcraft.....My work bought me a seat in their class, the Endorsement is in my name and not work...They cannot take it away as it is part of my lisc. that I lend to work.

So i ask you do those manuals beling to me or my employer......My B737 manuals came from a contract teacher who had nothing to do with my employer...

Since the endorsment is mine then the books are mine to do with as I please.

No where do the manual eplain how to do anything with the airplane. They just explain how a system works...They do not even say this is how you run the airplane or turn power on....They do sxplain how the EPR system works....how the Bus protecion cct works.....But it doesn ot say "to start the ening you do this".....

There is a big difference between an operational manual and a maintenance course manual.

Are the FlightCraft manuals from Boeing, or are they training manuals that FlightCraft wrote? Or, are they written by FlightCraft as part of a Boeing approved training course?

Either way, I'd tend to agree with you that those are your manuals, not your employers, and are probably not intellectual property.

The point of my replies has been this:

Quoting ReidYYZ (Thread starter):
I have a set of B767 and Vickers Viscount maintenance training manuals from AC

The thread starter says he has manuals from AC. These were given to Air Canada and not intended to be taken from the operator by an employee who is now offering them in trade to the general public.

BTW, whether or not a manual tells you how to operate the aircraft makes no difference. Boeing does not want to share the secrets of system design with competitors. For example: If Boeing's EPR system is different and more efficient than Airbus', do you think that B would want A to know how it works differently, or would they want that kept secret?

No what he is saying is he has manuals given to him from a course Aircanada gave on the B767...It says no where that the manuals were given to Aircanada...

I think the confusion comes from the differences between what goes on in Canada and the USA...

Yes, they may know each others' systems work, but do you really think they want to share the info freely? Trust me, I myself have signed confidentiality agreements that expressly state the rules for distribution of aviation related manuals and the like. Manufacturers do not want these things out there in circulation. They threaten legal action against people for just this.

By the way, why is everybody so aggravated with me? I'm just trying to keep this guy out of trouble. My life would be a lot easier if I could get manuals for free from any source I wanted.

Obviously, you don't care. So be it. I hope you find someone to take your manuals.
