Diffs Between Manufacturer And Airline Manual?

Fri Dec 05, 2003 3:41 am

Hey everyone

My question is

Why would an airline have its own specific aircraft manual instead of using the manufacturer's ?

What kind of manual? Operational, maintenance, minimum equipment list, parts, wiring? There are all sorts of manuals.

Because their procedures are different... e.g. on the roles & responsibilities of PF and PNF. Or using metres instead of feet.

And, otherwise, what else would management pilots have to do?

Each airline has additional procedures that they may want to include in their operational manuals. The manufacturer's manual may have 5 steps to start an engine, whilst the airline may have 7.

For an example, an airline may experience somthing that the industry hasn't. In this instance, the manufacture may not want to change the manaul for everyone, but the airline feels they require some additional steps to ensure they don't experience it again.
