2.2.2 Remedial Actions: Aircraft exempted from the evaluation, as defined in paragraph
2.2, with the exception
of aircraft that have not yet
reached the end
of their IOP, shall be subject to the
(a) Aircraft that have been damaged by crash or combat operations shall have the
provisions of the JACE satisfied coincidentally with damage assessment and repair estimate inspections.
While no scoring data will be generated or reported, indicators or conditions uncovered shall be included in
the repair estimate, and decisions regarding disposition shall be made by the affected service.
(b) Aircraft that are undergoing a comprehensive, depot-level modificationaction, as defined
by paragraph 2.2 (c), may have the provisions of the JACE satisfied coincidentally with that modification
action by the agency (Government or Contractor) conducting the modification action. The affected service
may elect to postpone the JACE until after the completion of the modificationaction and subsequent delivery
to the Government. In this event, the aircraft shall be subject to a maximum operational time limit that shall
not exceed 30 consecutive calendar days from the date of Government acceptance, or 50 total flying hours
from the logbook time of Government acceptance, whichever is the lesser. At the expiration of this time limit,
the aircraft shall be placed into a nonflying status until such time as the JACE is conducted.
(c) Aircraft deployed to a Combat/Hazardous Duty Zone, a remote field exercise site, and/or
aircraft deployed aboard an under way vessel, shall be subject to a maximum operational time limit that shall
not exceed 30 consecutive calendar days from the date of return from the deployment, to Continental United
States (CONUS) andlor an Outside Conus (OCONUS) location not designated as a Combat/Hazardous Duty
Zone, or 50 total flying hours from such return from the deployment, whichever is the lesser. At the expiration
of this time limit, the aircraft shall be placed into a nonflying status until such time as the JACE is conducted.
(d) Aircraft exempted by virtue of command authority shall be subject to a maximum time
limit for operation after release from command authority, as specified by the command authority granting the
exemption, at the time of the release. At the expiration of that time limit, the aircraft shall be placed on a
priority schedule until such time as the JACE is conducted.
2.2.3 Remedial Action Records: The affected service shall be responsible for
maintaining records of the remedial actions taken for any aircraft exempted for any reasons specified herein,
and shall transmit those records to the Trend Analysis Database System Administrator for incorporation into
the database. The records must include the aircraft tail number, action taken, result (score), and the date of
the completion of the action.
DEFECT CORRECTION: Correction of defects uncovered as a result of JACE is driven by
two criteria: defect severity and corrective action maintenance level. The guidelines for this policy are
2.3.1 Minor: All Minor defects identified during the JACE inspection, correctable at the
Organizational/Intermediate (O/I) level, may be corrected at the convenience of the Unit Commander, or a
designated representative, hereinafter referred to as Unit Commander. By definition, a minor repair should
be correctable at the unit level.
2.3.2 Major: Major defects identified during the JACE inspection, falling within similar
guidelines, also may be correctable at the O/I level at the convenience of the Unit Commander. However,
according to the nature of the severity of the defect, every effort should be made to correct the defect at the
earliest possible opportunity. Major defects that are identified as correctable at the depot level require that
the Unit Commander and the affected service determine the impact of the defect on the unit's operational
schedule, and ensure that required actions are scheduled as expeditiously as possible to minimizethe impact
on the operational unit.
