We have a lot of heavy mx outsourced overseas. Do you now have 100% faith that your airplane is airworthy even with a clean logbook? Do you have 100% faith that your ASAP report calling out the companies failures and reg breaking wonít end up in some vindictive managers hands?

Thereís a problem here...
I transferred to a LAA base over a year ago and am seeing now lots of mx issues. Not sure, if it is a combination of unhappy mx people being new to the airplane or what, but the delays resulting from those issues are embarrassing to our pax. The classic line from MX is usually what an effed up French airplane that is and blablabla, but yet they canít answer why at my former LUS base I saw only once two MELs.

100% faith that the plane is airworthy? F NO! I got one plane from the hangar with two dents in the RVSM critical area AND had to argue with line mx about it. The head mx guy checking into this issue refused to tell where the repairs had been made.
