This specification covers the requirements for establishing a system ensuring continued airworthiness of lighter-than-air light sport aircrafts. Such a system shall require both manufacturer and aircraft owners and operators to maintain communication and proper documentation of matters relating to safety, operations, and maintenance of aircraft produced and placed in service. The manufacturer shall keep a record of all registered aircraft owners (including all the aircrafts in service by serial number, registration number, and name and address of the owner), document all reported service difficulty (such as failures, malfunctions, or defects in the aircraft), promptly investigate such reports, and provide the appropriate corrective action. The manufacturer shall make available to aircraft owners and operators all documentation relating to compliance with standards, service difficulty, and corrective actions taken to address such cases (including design and service procedure changes) in the form of safety directives, service bulletins, and service letters. In addition, the Aircraft Operating Instructions shall bear the location and contact details for accessing such documents.
