The Contractor shall service the aircraft as required IAW manufacturers’ instructions, to include, but not limited to: de-icing, fluids, fueling, de-fueling, oiling, nitrogen, oxygen, cleaning (to include toilets), and inspections (daily, pre-flight, post-flight, and turn-around). The Contractor is responsible for aircraft towing, directing, parking, securing, and technical assistance to flight crews.

      2. Transient Aircraft. Servicing and maintenance of transient aircraft, supported under this contract, can be authorized by the OSGR on a non-interference basis with Site operations.

The Contractor shall provide all servicing materials except as delineated in Section 9.

      3. Preventive and Corrective Maintenance. The Contractor shall incorporate corrosion prevention and control into its QA Program (see also 4.9 and Navy Appendix H). The Contractor shall maintain QA-related documentation at each site and make that documentation available to the OSGR/Government upon request.

      4. Special / Conditional Inspections. The Government may direct and the Contractor shall perform and complete, to the extent the Government deems necessary, a one-time, special or conditional inspection whenever the aircraft is subjected to safety-of-flight conditions, including (a) a hard landing, (b) severe turbulence, (c) lightning strikes, (d) bird strikes, (e) sudden stoppage of the engine, (f) overstressing or exceeding the operating limits of the aircraft or engines, (g) cross-deck pendant (runway arresting gear cable) impact with the nose landing gear, or, (h) landing gear reversal. The Contractor shall implement all actions within the timeframe specified and incorporate the inspection into maintenance requirements as directed. One-time special inspections are considered a no-fault situation (aircraft are in a non-reporting status).

      5. Compass Swings. The Contractor shall accomplish and record all event-driven compass swings IAW FAA regulations and Service-unique requirements.

      6. Weight and Balance. The Contractor shall accomplish aircraft weighing and be responsible for preparing and maintaining current weight and balance records for each aircraft. All event-driven weighing and balancing of aircraft shall be accomplished by the Contractor IAW FAA regulations and service-driven instructions utilizing only FAA-qualified weight and balance technicians and approved equipment.

        1. Automated Weight and Balance System (AWBS). The Contractor shall use the Air Force/Navy Automated Weight and Balance System, Version 9.2 (AWBS 9.2) or higher, to document aircraft weight and balance. Weight and Balance Records. The Contractor shall maintain DD 365 Forms documenting aircraft weight and balance configuration. Contractor maintenance personnel shall insure that DD 365 copies are maintained in the aircraft and in the flight planning area for aircrew reference.

      1. Avionics Database. The Contractor is responsible for providing a NavAids subscription service and updates to the navigation systems. The Contractor shall install the updates IAW FAA regulations and procedures and ensure that equipment and new data are functional and operational after installation.

      2. Hostile Operations. The Contractor shall be responsible to perform all of the functions accomplished under this contract during hostile operations when required by the Government. The Contractor may be required to support one or more aircraft as specified by the Government at locations other than the home site(s). In the event the contractor is required to support aircraft at locations other than home site(s) due to hostile operations, travel expenses would be cost reimbursable under the Over and Above Support Requirements (Travel/Other) CLINs. Hostile environmental conditions and mission requirements may require modification of the maintenance programs; but in no instance will safety-of-flight be compromised.

        1. On-Aircraft Maintenance. Preventive maintenance procedures developed for the aircraft as described in the applicable technical manuals will be followed when practical. However, mission requirements may dictate waiving certain requirements. Waiver or extension of these requirements is the responsibility of the OSGR with the advice of Contractor maintenance personnel. Safety-of-flight and mission urgency are the major considerations in determining these actions. All waivers or granted extensions will be in writing.

        2. Off-Aircraft Maintenance. Since mission reliability is the primary consideration, especially in the event of hostilities, modification to the handling of repairable and on-Site maintenance actions may be required upon approval of the OSGR on-Site.

4.6 Functional Check Flights (FCF)

FCF shall be conducted IAW the best commercial practices, OEM maintenance manuals and/or service-unique requirements. (See also Section 6.)

4.6.1 Contractor Support. The Contractor shall support all FCF activities, including preparing flight profiles, performing aircrew briefings and debriefings, providing any required in-flight assistance, and monitoring material failure trends occurring during FCF. FCF pilots will make a written report of discrepancies and aircraft status upon completion of the FCF. The Contractor shall maintain these reports and all FCF profiles on-site for six months. In the event aircraft discrepancy-related disagreements between the FCF pilot and the Contractor, the OSGR decisions shall prevail.
