During scheduled surveillance by the FAA, one of the ASIs made a comment regarding ELT maintenance.
He was inspecting mx records for a Hawker 700A on our 135 certificate. As he looked over a major mx event entry from back in the spring and noted that the ELT battery had been replaced. After a pause, he said that he was going to "bust" them................"I don't see an entry for FAR 91.207 ELT inspection. Whenever you change an ELT battery, you have to comply with the 91.207 ELT annual inspection" he said.
Before I could say anything, he found the entry for the ELT inspection, and went on.
I did not say anything to him about his comments, but I do feel that he is completely incorrect.
I am unaware of any requirement to comply with the ELT annual inspection items in 91.207 just because one performs a transmitter battery replacement mx task. Does anyone have an opinion on this?
