Podcast: Minimum Equipment Lists 101

Sept. 14, 2020

How much do you know about your aircraft’s minimum equipment list (MEL)? While it may seem like a fairly straightforward process to recognize what equipment is required for your aircraft to operate safely, “there are a lot of other pieces that fit into this equation,” notes NBAA Maintenance Committee Chair Greg Hamelink. “There’s so much more to an MEL than just printing the master minimum equipment list off the FAA website.”

In today’s episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Tom Atzert, owner of Leading Edge Aviation Technical Services
  • Greg Hamelink, senior manager for flight operations and maintenance, Stryker Corp.
  • Elaine Karabatsos, director of aviation maintenance, Encompass Health Corp.

NBAA Flight Plan is sponsored by Whiting Aviation Park, ready to grow your business in Santa Rosa County, FL.
