- We treat the Internet is a tool, not a toy.
Therefore, we dispense with most of the frills and
graphic "Eye Candy" found on some web sites that seem to
take forever to download and display. We include graphics
in data files when they are part of the original
document. We really believe that: Time is money.
- The Paper - Microfiche - CD-ROM evolution of
data distribution all share the same bad traits of
'distributed data': There is a Bi-Weekly data 'Cut-Off',
after which the data is converted, reformatted and
mailed. It arrives two-to-six weeks old. With both our
On-Line service and this Internet service, the DataBases
are updated daily. The data is always current within 24
to 48 hours.
- The Aviation DataBase and its components in The
Aviation Regulatory ReSource System are intended to meet
the needs of Aviation Maintenance Professionals,
Consultants and Designated Representatives of the FAA. To
that end, they contain all the legally required data
(Current ADs, TCs, ACs & FARs) and as much other data
as we can get.
- The System is intended to be a working tool, not just
a collection of data files all thrown together.
Therefore, where required, the data is indexed to allow
the user to ask such questions as: What are all the
ADs that apply to this Engine? or What is the
latest revision of this TC or that FAR?
- There are a number of ways to store and display text
files; ASCII, HTML, PDF, DOC and RTF, to name a few. We
chose RTF (Rich Text Format) for several reasons, one
being file size. RTF files are typically less than half
the size of standard word processor files (DOC, WPD,
etc.), and can, therefore, be downloaded and displayed
much faster while maintaining most of the format
flexibility of DOC files. Since RTF files can be
displayed by most modern Windows based word processors,
there is no need to have special viewer software to use
the system. And the Windows Cut & Paste features can
be used to extract a file or file segment to be printed
or used for other purposes. Parts of an AD, TC or FAR can
be 'cut' and inserted into aircraft logbooks or other
reports. Recent TC and SAIB files will be displayed in
