2. May perform all maintenance functions authorized to be done at AVUM. Repair of equipment for return to
user will emphasize support of operational readiness requirements. Authorized maintenance includes
replacement and repair of modules/components and end items which can be accomplished efficiently with
available skills, tools, and equipment.
3. Establishes the Direct Exchange (DX) program for AVUM units by repairing selected items for return to stock
when such repairs cannot be accomplished at the AVUM level.
4. Inspects, troubleshoots, performs diagnostic tests, repairs, adjusts, calibrates, and aligns aircraft system
modules/components. AVIM units will have capability to determine the serviceability of specified
modules/components removed prior to the expiration of the Time Between Overhaul (TBO) or finite life.
Module/component disassembly and repair will support the DX program and will normally be limited to tasks
requiring cleaning and the replacement of seals, fittings, and items of common hardware. Airframe repair and
fabrication of parts will be limited to those maintenance tasks which can be performed with available tools and
test equipment. Unserviceable reparable modules/components and end items which are beyond the
capability of AVIM to repair will be evacuated to depot maintenance.
5. Performs aircraft weight and balance inspections and other special inspections which exceed AVUM
6. Provides quick response maintenance support, including aircraft recovery and air evacuation, on-the-job
training, and technical assistance through the use of mobile maintenance contact teams.
7. Maintains authorized operational readiness float aircraft.
8. Provides collection and classification services for serviceable/unserviceable materiel.
9. Operates a cannibalization activity in accordance with AR 710-2 (Supply Policy Below the Wholesale Level)
and DA PAM 710-2-2 (Supply Support Activity System Manual Procedures). (The aircraft maintenance
company within the maintenance battalion of a division will perform AVIM functions consistent with air mobility
requirements and conservation of personnel and equipment resources. Additional intermediate maintenance
support will be provided by the supporting nondivisional AVIM unit.)
USE OF THE MAC
Approved item names are used throughout this MAC. Generic
terms/nomenclature (if any) are expressed in parentheses and are not to be
considered as official terminology.
This MAC assigns maintenance functions to the lowest level of maintenance, based on past experience and the
Work time required.
Tools and test equipment required and/or available.
Only the lowest level of maintenance authorized to perform a maintenance function is indicated. If the lowest
maintenance level cannot perform all tasks of any single maintenance function (e.g., test, repair), then the higher
maintenance level(s) that can accomplish additional tasks will also be indicated.
A maintenance function assigned to a maintenance level will automatically be authorized to be performed at any
higher maintenance level.
A maintenance function that cannot be performed at the assigned level of maintenance for any reason may be
evacuated to the next higher maintenance level. Higher maintenance levels will perform the maintenance
functions of lower maintenance levels when required by the commander who has the authority to direct such
