This is a practical approach to, and com­prehensive examination of, the problems that face the aviation supervisor.


The first chapter discusses the impact of population and geographic changes on the regulation of the airline industry. Chapter 2 deals with “The Federal Aviation Administration,” Chapter 3 with “Regulatory Requirements,” and Chapter 4 with “Organizational Struc­tures.” Chapter 5, “Management Re­sponsibilities,” explores such practical aspects as directing programs, leader­ship, providing motivation and incen­tives, and communication. Chapter 6, “Aviation Maintenance Procedures”—Chapter 7, “Applications of Aviation Maintenance Concepts”—and Chapter 8, “Budgeting, Cost Controls, and Cost Reduction”—also explore the daily problems of aviation supervision in practical terms.


Chapter 9, “Training and Professional Development in Aviation Maintenance,” contains a discussion of certified avia­tion maintenance technical schools.

Chapter 11, “Electronic Data Processing,” covers the computer and applications of received data. Chapter 12, “Aviation Maintenance Management Problem Areas,” deals with matters ranging from parts ordering to administrative concerns. The final chap­ter is a “Forecast and Summary.”
