ARSA: Final FAA Bill Takes “Common Sense” Approach to Maintenance Oversight

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA, Feb. 1, 2012 — Sarah Macleod, executive director of the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) issued the following statement upon the release of the FAA reauthorization congressional conference report:

“ARSA congratulates House and Senate leaders for reaching agreement on a four-year FAA bill. The Association is pleased to see the hard work of its member pay off in legislation that will allow the aviation maintenance industry to build on its outstanding safety record while remaining competitive in the global marketplace.

“By listening to constituents and taking a commonsense approach, Congress avoided the pitfalls threatening repair stations in prior reauthorization bills. The conference report will protect the more than 274,000 Americans employed in civil aviation maintenance.”

“ARSA will continue to work with lawmakers to ensure that the conference report is enacted as quickly as possible.”

ARSA’s legislative and regulatory staff is available to speak with the media regarding the conference reports implications for aviation repair stations. To speak with a member of ARSA’s team, contact Jason Langford, ARSA director of communications, 703 739 9543.
