Equipment Installation and Maintenance Manuals
Several components attached to sailplanes and other aircraft need regular overhaul. These components are classified as ‘equipment’ as they are not made by the aircraft manufacturer and have their own separate EASA approval. All equipment fitted to a sailplane, such as radios, transponders, engines, propellers, and release hooks are issued new with an installation/maintenance manual. These manuals should be used when installing and maintaining the equipment. Any owner who needs an equipment installation and maintenance manual should check the manufacturers website for details. The manuals should be kept in the aircraft maintenance file/records along with the aircraft maintenance manual.
