|Quoting Max78 (Thread starter):|
levels of maintenance: type of procedures, off/on AC, parts replacements, parts repair
|Quoting AWACSooner (Reply 2):|
Honestly... and I am not trying to be a jerk here... but I really hope you are not able to find some of that stuff on the web. In all reality there is no reason why any of that should be public. Unit maintenance schedules, procedures, etc. should not be public domain, because of the sensitivity and potential security risk.
|Quoting Max78 (Reply 5):|
Curt22, apparently you seem to know a bit on it.. you are mentionning DoD guidance (should be public) and 3 different repair levels (Organizational, Intermediate and Depot level). Could be detail a bit ?
|Quoting Mascmo (Reply 9):|
However, our C130 manuals are not approved for public distribution!
|Quoting Dragon6172 (Reply 3):|
Maintenance is maintenance, whether it be civil or military. Bad parts get changed, inspections get done, paperwork is completed. So the scope is the same, just the details differ. If you want details, I refer you to the two previous posts.
|Quoting 474218 (Reply 11):|
With so many many C-130's flying on the civilian registry and so many different overhaul facilities that work on the military C-130's the manual have to be publicly available.
|Quoting HercPPMX (Reply 12):|
There are manuals for everything on the C-130 I work on engine's and we alone have near 20, they break down every aspect. Now if you add the manuals for airframes, avionics, life support systems there are a ton, and they are model specific and the military ones vs. civilian ones are different because of different systems and configurations of the aircraft, but the military ones are not for public knowledge.
|Quoting 474218 (Reply 14):|
A revealed Google search revaled several web site where C-130 Maintenance manuals can be purchased.
|Quoting HercPPMX (Reply 15):|
I'm not really looking for a debate, afaik our current ones SHOULD not be in the public knowledge.
