During the redelivery of leased commercial aircraft, meeting the maintenance records requirements of the jurisdiction under which the aircraft will be redelivered can be a challenge. The aviation authorities Aircamo Aviation Ltd are approved by, prescribe that each commercial operator must engage a Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO).
The purpose of a CAMO is to maintain a “controlled environment” that ensures maintenance continuity, quality, and record keeping requirements are actioned and managed in compliance with the required standards. Among the tasks handled by a CAMO are ensuring compliance with Airworthiness Directives, monitoring LLP flight hour/cycles, scheduling maintenance activities, tracking Certification Maintenance Requirement completion, and incorporating STC embodiment certification requirements into the overall aircraft upkeep and records picture. In short, CAMO is the glue that holds the airworthiness conundrum together.
If a commercial aircraft is to be redelivered under the jurisdiction of a regulatory authority that has adopted the CAMO concept, all of the maintenance activities on that aircraft (or engine not installed on an airframe) must be controlled by a CAMO. Generally, Lessors and Owners of aircraft and engines do not have Air Operators Certificates, so it is not permissible for them to get a Maintenance Organisation to do the work required and then deliver the aircraft to the lessee. Whatever maintenance is done must be completed under the controlled environment of a CAMO approved by the jurisdiction the aircraft is to be transferred under.
