Part 135 Compliance Statements for all Operators
In the past a compliance statement was mainly used during the certification process. After the operator received their certification, the compliance statement was mostly ignored. A “dead document” of sorts. Now 8900.1 defines the compliance statement a “livng document” requiring revision when regulations change. Originally operators were required to respond to Part 135 only.  When Part 119 came into existance, that also was included in the requirement. At that time we also started responding the maintenance requirements of Part 91. Since 8900.1 replaced 8400.10 the FSDOs have been requiring all of Parts 91, 110, 119 and 135.  A typical compliance statement can now easily exceed 600 pages in length. Our compliance statments include a List of Effective Pages, Table of Contents, and revision procedures to ensure that your POI will find everything he’s looking for in your compliance statement.
