The FAA’s proposal to clarify the definition of “actively engaged” for airframe & powerplant mechanics who hold the Inspection Authorization (IA) certificate resulted in 907 public submissions to the docket, according to a report in Aviation International News, which lists a number of comments, including this one: “I believe anyone who has taken the time and effort to obtain and maintain an Inspection Authorization is actively engaged. I know several fellow IAs who may not turn a wrench every day but they are still actively engaged in the aviation maintenance field. Some are managers like me, and others are pilots; in all cases we are actively engaged.”
