The Afghan Air Force (AAF) has jointly developed a new set of aircraft forms with the Nato Air Training Command-Afghanistan.

The forms will include information about aircraft servicing, pre and post-flight inspections, aircraft discrepancies and maintenance corrective actions, improving transparency and standardisation for AAF aircrews as well as maintenance personnel.

The new form will be in compliance with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) standards for documenting aircraft status and maintenance action.

The documentation is modelled on the US Army aircraft maintenance forms and is similar to air force technical order forms for US Air Force aircraft.
