Available, Available Qualified, Not Available
The status level is the state of which we are compliant with the requirements of the contract. Basically it is based around the serviceability of the aircraft and its ancillary equipment to complete the tasking. Eg; if a Fire Tank is unserviceable, but the aircraft can carry out firefighting with a bucket; this would be 'Available Qualified'. For 'Available Qualified' or 'Not Available' - the contract manager must be made aware of this prior to scheduled commencement of start time.
What Status Level is the aircraft operating at Today?
Please ensure Ian Sheffield and the Base Manager/Chief Pilot are notified that the aircraft is not fully compliant.
