Minimum equipment list, or MEL, is a categorized list of on-board systems, instruments and equipment that may be inoperative for flight. Specific procedures or conditions may be associated with operation of the relevant item. It is considered by default that any equipment or system related to airworthiness which is not included in the MEL is required to be operative. The MEL is defined for each aircraft based on MMEL provided by Aircraft Manufacturer.
