Ha. Must be desperate if you’re putting words in my mouth. Why not use the quote function and show me stating copies are against the FARs? And while you’re at it quote me where I don’t accept copies? I’m simply rebutting your idea that I can’t request a review of the original logs during the course of maintenance. You're wrong. Why not ask your respective shops how the FAA allows them to use copies of the aircraft records for their maintenance? Also ask them if they have the ability to request a review of the original records/logbooks in the course of their maintenance on the aircraft? There are precedents, just not in the FARs. Be interesting to see your answers.
