Minimum Equipment List (MEL) Use
The MEL Use module is an overview of Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 91.213 Inoperative Instruments and Equipment, ICAO Annex 6, FAA 8900.1 Volume 4, Chapter 4, Section 2; FAA InFO 17007; and the different sections of a typical MEL. In this module, we address Configuration Deviation Lists (CDL) and Non-Essential Equipment and Furnishings (NEF) and review National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) reports from fellow business aircraft pilots related to MELs.
The NBAA Management Guide (section 2.4) recommends advanced flight crew training above and beyond the regulatory requirements of the FAA as a best practice. That recommendation specifically cites Minimum Equipment List training. This training module satisfies that NBAA training recommendation.
