Acquisition of Survival Gear


Research
With the assistance of Brian Watson and Kimberley Feher at the Western Canadian Aviation Museum, Ian Leslie at the Canadian Aviation Museam, and Christine Dunphy at the Shearwater Aviation Museam, several invaluable manuals and publications have been made available to TTA, and copies have been made.

Thanks to the Master List of EOs that Ian Leslie copied for TTA, we now have an accurate count on how many EOs TTA needs. (In addition to that, through careful studying of the EOs and their cross referencing to other EOs a lengthy list has been produced.)

TTA now has the Maintenance and Servicing Set for the Expeditor (not an easy thing to produce). However, to do a complete BFI Inspection (Before Flight Inspection, now called a B Check), and to do a complete Periodic Inspection, more EOs are needed.

As such, through the efforts of CTO T. Watson, a link has been created on this web page showing exactly what we need with regards to technical publications. Our technical library continues to grow, and it is interesting that the more publications we obtain (and the more that these publications refer to other EOs), the more we see that we are going to need more of them.

Or, boiled down, just when you think youre done and you have enough EOs, you suddenly find yourself needing a whole lot more.

At some point in the future and only through the help of various museums, veterans, and organizations we will have enough EOs and will be able to honestly say that TTAs Technical Library is complete.

We have the following texts:
