Air Transport Association


Air Transport Association

The Air Transport Association is a trade organization of the largest North American airlines. The ATA was formed in 1936 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C.. ATA numbers are used to identify parts of an aircraft in a standard way.

ATA Spec 100: Manufacturers' Technical Data

The Air Transport Association released the newest version of ATA Spec 100 in 1999. According to the ATA website, this information will not be revised, and has been combined with ATA Spec 2100 to produce the manual.

This specification defines a widely-used numbering scheme for aircraft parts and the appearance of printed aircraft maintenance information.

The Federal Aviation Administration's JASC (Joint Aircraft System/Component) code table provides a modified version of ATA Spec 100.

ATA Spec 100 contains format and content guidelines for technical manuals written by aviation manufacturers and suppliers and is used by airlines and other segments of the industry in the maintenance of their respective products. This document provides the industry-wide standard for aircraft systems numbering, often referred to as the ATA system or ATA chapter numbers. The format and content guidelines define the data prepared as conventional printed documentation. In 2000, ATA Spec 100 and ATA Spec 2100 were incorporated into ATA iSpec 2200: Information Standards for Aviation Maintenance. ATA Spec 100 and Spec 2100 will not be updated beyond the 1999 revision level.
