Introduction

This course will provide you with an understanding about why policies procedures, instructions, rules, regulations, and best practices exist and why they are the “safety net” foundation for aviation maintenance safety.   The course suggests that deviations from these critical safety nets creates unacceptable and unsafe conditions. 

The course introduces five of the most common “rationalizations” that mechanics use to justify when they intentionally deviate from these safety nets and uses a video about a Nose Gear Collapse to show some examples when a mechanic might become involved in one or more of these “rationalizations.” 

The course also suggest some alternatives you can take to your hangar and use when rationalizations make it appear that not following procedures could be an acceptable option.
