I can't remember what an MMEL might be...but you should be able to find the MEL (Minimum Equipment List)in the FAR Aim. Of course as with everything in aviation there is an acronym for the MEL and I should remember it as it was a part of my FAA oral exam when I certified, but oh well. Sorry can't be of more help....but I'm to lazy to try and find my FAR Aim..lol.

The MMEL is the Master MEL for the aircraft type provided by the manufacturer from which each particular operator's or aircraft's individual MEL is constructed from.

MMEL is the FAA's , the MEL is the operators.The Aircraft Evaluation Group (AEG) inside the FAA, Flight Standards organization which sets training, checking, currency, type rating, master minimum equipment list (MMEL), and maintenance standards (maintenance review boards) for assigned aircraft types. AEG's also address operational aspects of aircraft type certification and resolution of service difficultiesFlight Operations Evaluation Board (FOEB). The FAA board responsible for preparation and revision of MMEL's.So, A Minimum Equipment List (MEL) is an FAA approved document that allows an aircraft owner/operator to fly with a certain item(s) inoperative. The Federal Aviation Administration produces a Master Minimum Equipment List (MMEL) for most aircraft to use. They provide the format that is acceptable to the administrator.KevinAu, not aware the mfg. did this. Can you show me please.Hope this helps answer your KL assignment, Shox. :-waveJay
