ARSA, Industry Allies Request 145 Extension

On Aug. 3, ARSA joined with several of its industry allies on a letter to the FAA requesting an extension to the comment period of the agency’s rewrite of part 145 rules.

The nine associations requested that the FAA grant a 90 day comment extension to its notice of proposed rulemaking, stressing the significant operational and financial ramifications for the small business dominated repair station industry. The groups also highlighted the difficulty that many repair stations face in preparing to comment on such a robust rulemaking proposal.

If an extension is granted, ARSA will continue to work in concert with its allies to solicit and compile industry comments. The additional time will allow for a more comprehensive response that will undoubtedly improve any final rulemaking.

Without the approval of the extension, comments are due on Aug. 20. For a side-by-side comparison of the changes the new rule would impose, click here.
