If you hold a mechanic certificate with airframe and powerplant ratings, you know that you need an inspection authorization (IA) issued under FAR 65.91 in order to perform and sign off on an annual or progressive inspection, or to inspect an aircraft and return it to service after a major repair or major alteration. In order to obtain an IA, a mechanic must meet the eligibility requirements of Section 65.91(c). Section 65.93(a) incorporates those same requirements for renewal of an IA. An IA is issued for a two-year period and expires on March 31 of odd-numbered years.
