Administration, F. A. (n.d.). Commercial Rlv Operations and Maintenance Draft Guidelines May 20, 2003. Retrieved from

Excerpt: This guideline is to assure continuous flightworthiness of RLVs (similar to FAA Aviation airworthiness approach). The maintenance program plan should include scheduled and unscheduled maintenance to ensure public safety. Scheduled maintenance is intended to maintain the vehicle or hardware at the same level of safety as when it was approved. A properly maintained vehicle is less likely to experience an operational problem that would adversely affect public safety. Unscheduled maintenance takes care of unforeseen problems and is used to return a vehicle to the same safety level as when it was approved. Unscheduled maintenance can also be used to correct design or other problems in systems and components. Incorporating maintenance into the design phase results in hardware that is easier to maintain. Access panels and component access are good examples of this concept. A piece of hardware that is easy to maintain is more likely to be maintained correctly. If maintenance is too difficult, short cuts and omissions can occur, thereby compromising public safety. A side benefit is streamlined maintenance with reduced operational costs.
