Is it necessary to get a FAA Form 8130-3 for a windshield?
ANSWER: Reference Advisory Circular (AC) 20-62D. You can download a copy of this document in the Advisory Circuar section of this website.
For U.S. registered aircraft, acceptable replacement parts should be identified using one of the following methods:
- A manufacturer’s shipping invoice containing a certification of compliance statement for new parts;
- A maintenance release document signed by an appropriately certificated person, qualified for the relevant function that signifies that the item has been returned to service, after a maintenance or test function has been completed.
This type of documentation could be in the form of a repair station tag, containing adequate information (section 43.9), work order, FAA Form 337, FAA Form 8130-3, or a maintenance record entry, which must include an appropriate description of the maintenance work performed, including the recording requirements of section 43.9 and Appendix B; or
- EASA Form One (dual release) that includes a statement required by FAR 43.9.
