Guide to FAK service intervals
Schedule overhaul and replenishment of aircraft first aid kits
While there is not a Component Maintenance Manual (CMM) for aircraft first aid kits (FAK) there is generally a "Date of Next Inspection" so that the aircraft operator can establish a regular inspection procedure or standard method that will ensure any life sensitive items will not expire before the next scheduled inspection date and that any used items will be replenished.
Different models of FAK have different contents and different items have different service lifetimes. FAK life sensitive components such as the burn ointment, ammonia inhalants, antiseptic swabs, or other medicines are individually marked on those boxes (or packaging in the case of medicines)as to their specific expiration dates.
Upon any inspection date the kit contents and container shall be examined for count and general condition, and that any items missing or in poor condition should be replaced.
For first aid kit models under part reference S6-01-0005-XXX variation the following guidelines apply:
FAA aircraft first aid kits
The "Date of Next Inspection" should be thirty-five (35) months from the date of manufacture.
JAR-OPS/EASA first aid kits
The "Date of Next Inspection" should be fourteen (14) months from the date of manufacture.
FAA/CAAC first aid kits
The "Expiration Date" should be thirty-five (35) months from the date of manufacture.
Time expired items in these first aid kits can be replaced by an authorised repair station and the items returned to service with a fresh airworthiness tag.
