AMS Passes 2010 Coast Guard Inspection

Chesterland, OH -- Aerospace Maintenance Solutions (AMS) has passed a recent August 2010 US Coast Guard inspection with no issues. The Coast Guard periodically inspects depots to ensure repair work performed on avionic and other equipment they repair is being performed according to specific guidelines.

Engineers and technicians from Guard's Aviation Logistics Center (ALC) in Elizabeth City, North Carolina district office of the Coast Guard conducted the inspection. The inspection included all activities associated with repairing key components that support the mission readiness of the Lockheed Martin C-130 transport.

In addition to physical components stocked at the AMS depot, the Coast Guard inspection covers all activities associated with maintenance and technical services performed at depot sites. All engineering activities in support of the maintenance of aircraft components are subject to securitization by Coast Guard inspectors.

Typical inspections can also cover activities associated with system specific documentation, including blue prints, drawings, repair and test procedures documentation, logistic management information , and other technical data utilized by or directly associated with depot-level maintenance.

Modernization of the Coast Guard will standardize procedures and shift it to a functions-based command structure. The FY 2011 President's Budget from the Obama Administration continues funding for recapitalization of aging assets, including aircraft.

The U.S. Coast Guard is a military service within the Department of Homeland Security and one of the nation's five armed services. Its core roles are to protect the public, the environment, and U.S. economic and security interests in any maritime region in which those interests may be at risk, including international waters and America's coasts, ports, and inland waterways. Reliable maintenance of Coast Guard aircraft is a critical success factor in performing these tasks.
