2.7Continued Qualification Basis

2.7.1 Simulators must maintain the performance, functionality and other characteristics that are required for initial qualification except as authorized by the Simulator Component Inoperative Guide. An integral part of the system of checks to ensure the simulator performs continually at the same level as for initial approval as required by the regulations is the daily functional check. This check must be performed each day and form part of the maintenance log.

2.7.2 Except as provided for in paragraph2.2.8 of this Chapter, all evaluations of those simulators qualified after the effective date of this manual shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions herein. Simulators and visual and motions systems approved in accordance with criteria in effect prior to the effective date of this manual shall continue to maintain their status according to those criteria (provided the simulator and systems remain in an uninterrupted qualification status).
