There are a number of safety critical processes that are common to landing gear systems. A safety critical process (CSP) is a landing gearmaintenance manufacturing, repair or overhaul process which if ommitted or preformed incorrectly will cause failure of a safety citical item (CSI) in operation. A CSI is a landing gear item whose failure or omission will cause more than $1M in damage, serious injury or death. This AIR will define methods and modes of failure for CSPs based on experience.
Rationale: This will be accomplished for educational purposes as well as to increase awareness for cognizant engineering authorities, processors and users. I will serve as a guide for those who desire to identify critical processes for manufacturing, operational and repair activities for extra control/scrutiny.
