Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Helicopter Association
International (HAI) have joined forces to provide the aviation
industry with the Maintenance Malfunction Information Report
(MMIR) system. The MMIR program is today's solution to the time
consuming process of hand writing numerous FAA and warranty
fulfills FAA Service Difficulty Reporting (SDR) requirements and
creates manufacturer warranty claim forms. FAA/HAI designed the
system to meet the requirements of FARs 145.63, 121.703, and 135.415
when incorporated into approved maintenance and operational programs.
Also, MMIR is a standard format accepted by most Original Equipment
Manufacturers (OEMs) and their warranty service systems. Users
of the program will recognize a savings in time, costs, and a
vast reduction in paperwork.
by HAI, the MMIR program is based on the full page, four-copy,
self-carboning MMIR form introduced in the 1980s. By utilizing
MMIR, maintenance departments have permanent records in a database,
which can be manipulated to provide specific cost and reliability
information. Records are secure, and the user designates whether
the reports are for internal use or sent to the FAA and/or the
main thrusts of the MMIR program are to enhance aviation safety
and to reduce operating costs. Using MMIR, early identification
of potentially fatal failures have provided overwhelming positive
benefits to the aviation industry. The MMIR program can provide
the aviation industry with much needed data that would otherwise
be unavailable, enhancing aviation safety while reducing
is a comprehensive computerized database representing the most
up-to-date maintenance information. The MMIR data format has
created a standard for reporting service difficulties and warranty
claims. Industry-wide, data entry is reduced from manual input
into four computer systems to just one, and the one-time data
entry is faster and more accurate. Manufacturers and the FAA
have quick and easy access to data which is critical to the
safe operation of aircraft. Part number analysis reports can
be run by any registered user.
has fully transitioned to a Web-based program. All you need
is a computer with an Internet connection. Establishing your
company's account is a simple process. It's easy and free, and
there are no obligations other than to discover how well MMIR
can serve you. on.
