FAA issues InFO on Service Difficulty Reports
from Aeronautical Repair Station Association
The FAA has released guidance clarifying the regulatory requirement for filing Service Difficulty Reports under 14 CFR § 121.703. Section 121.703 requires certificate holders to file reports with the FAA on the occurrence or detection of certain failures, malfunctions or defects within 96 hours. The rule does not specifically address the reporting timeframe for defects discovered on aircraft that are out of service due to scheduled maintenance lasting more than 72 hours.
