Issue: AO-2017-078-SI-01Maintenance practices
Number: AO-2017-078-SI-01
Description: AO-2017-078-SI-01:Cloncurry Air Maintenance had adopted a number of practices, which included using abbreviated inspection checklists, not recording all flight control disturbances and not progressively certifying for every inspection item as the work was completed, which increased the risk of memory-related errors and the omission of tasks.
