ARSA to New Congress: Get to Know Aviation Maintenance

On Jan. 3, ARSA’s Vice President of Legislative Affairs Daniel B. Fisher issued the following statement as the 115th Congress was sworn-in on Capitol Hill.

“Congratulations to the 115th Congress.  Whether new or returning, Democrat, Republican, or Independent, ARSA looks forward to introducing you to the hardworking men and woman at aviation maintenance facilities worldwide.

“The small business-dominated civil aviation maintenance industry ensures flight safety while employing nearly 274,000 people and generating $43.1 billion in economic activity.  For ARSA members, good safety is good business.  Regardless of government regulations, repair stations have a responsibility to never compromise the quality of their work.  Cumbersome, unnecessary mandates only hinder operational freedom and do nothing to enhance safety while stifling the ability of U.S. companies to compete internationally.

“We look forward to working with the new Congress on FAA reauthorization legislation, tax reform,  workforce and labor policy and other issues impacting the aviation industry and small-medium-sized businesses.  Remember, we may be easy to overlook, but you can’t fly without us!”
