Maintenance Procedures Course (MPC) Program

If you are getting close to completion of your project, or want to start doing your own maintenance and don’t have a MPC Certificate, start planning now – check here to keep abreast of planned dates.

What is the SAAA Maintenance Procedure Course (MPC)? CASA has stipulated in a CASA Instrument Number if you want to do maintenance on your Experimental Amateur Built (EAB) aircraft (your aircraft build) then you must satisfactorily complete a course of training which covers the topics and standards as specified in that Instrument Number. This course outlines your legal responsibility of what is required when you sign a Maintenance Release (MR).

The MPC includes the Weight & Balance (WB) segment – participating in an MPC gives you the legal permission you need but the WB segment is only valid for 2 years. If you need to renew this, here’s your chance. Want to refresh your MPC knowledge – sign up for a refresher. Refreshers are offered to current MPC certificate holders at a huge discount. Why not come along, catch up on any legislative changes, share your experiences, and learn from others’ experiences.

The course is available at no charge for SAAA Technical Counsellors (TCs) in recognition of their significant contributions to guiding, advising and supporting our Members through the building of their projects. TCs – thank you, we all appreciate your contribution!

The course is only available to financial Members of the SAAA. Subsequent to purchase, the purchaser must also be a financial member of the SAAA at the time of receiving a service or attending a course.
