DISTRIBUTION AND ORDERING OF PUBLICATIONS
900. Purpose. To establish policies and assign responsibilities
for the distribution of Peculiar to Aviation Training
Publications (PAT Pubs). The effective, efficient, and
economical production and distribution of training materials is
the prime requisite in the management of these resources.
Policy for PAT Pubs and ATFs/ITFs
a. Directives. Reference (e) issues policies and
procedures for the administration of CNATRA forms. CNATRA
(N1221) produces and maintains a case file on each ATF and
CNATRAINST 1542. Pat Pub and CNATRAINST 1542 source files are
kept in the FTSC Configuration Management Section.
b. TRAWING Representative. Each TRAWING shall designate a
PAT Pubs/ATF Coordinator and submit the name and phone number to
CNATRA (N31). Notify CNATRA immediately of any changes. All
correspondence between the TRAWINGs and CNATRA will be conducted
through the designated coordinators. The CNATRA PTOs will be the
point of contact for all PAT Pubs. CNATRA (N1221) is the point
of contact for all ATFs.
c. Distribution. PAT Pubs will be mailed to one TRAWING
location unless other arrangements are made with CNATRA. It is
recommended that each TRAWING establish a central filing system
for all PAT Pubs.
d. TRAWING Monthly PAT Pub Inventory Forms (CNATRA
1550/20. Monthly publication inventory forms are necessary to
reduce costs, maintain better accountability, and help anticipate
future needs. Inventory forms shall be consolidated at each
TRAWING and submitted to the appropriate CNATRA PTO by the 10th
of each month. This form is to be used as a tracking guide, not
a monthly reprint request. Reprint requests shall be processed
according to Paragraph 902.

corrected at the CNATRA FTSC, via the PTO. All corrections or
recommended changes shall be submitted via a TCR as discussed in
