337 Form

The FAA Form 337 is required anytime you have performed a MAJOR REPAIR and/or MAJOR ALTERATION. If you are not sure whether the maintenance that is being performed will be considered a Major Repair/Alteration, look at Appendix A of FAR Part 43 and the definitions of Major Repair/Alteration in FAR Part 1. (Also see question #2, How is a major alteration determined?)

A common misconception is that FAA Form 337 replaces the required maintenance record entry. This is not true. FAA Form 337 does not replace the maintenance record entry required by FAR Part 43. The last paragraph of Section 43.9(a)(4) states "In addition to the entry required by this paragraph, major repairs and major alterations shall be entered on a form, and the form disposed of, in the manner prescribed in appendix B, by the person performing the work." So, according to the regulations, a maintenance record entry is required even after performing a major repair or major alteration.

Another misconception is that a work order can be used in place of FAA Form 337. According to FAR Part 43, Appendix B, FAA certificated repair stations may use their work order in place of FAA Form 337 for major repairs only.

If you have any questions concerning FAA Form 337, contact your local FSDO.
