Thanks
The DAR does not "set" this requirement. The requirement is a part of the Operating Limitations stipulated in FAA Order 8130.2j. The DAR may add additional requirements if it is determined to be a safety issue, but may NOT change or remove any requirements from the original document.
The requirement clearly states that meeting the requirement is up to the owner/operator.
