ARSA Makes Recommendations for Audit Review Project

ARSA is working closely with international aviation authorities to reduce the overwhelming number of contract maintenance audits. The first challenge is to determine the quantifiable burden audits put on repair stations.

To assist in that process, in a Dec. 21 letter to the FAA’s contractor, FJ Leonelli Group, ARSA made several recommendations to a proposed repair station survey. ARSA’s comments will help ensure that the necessary framework is built to address the untenable reality of non-stop, overlapping, and duplicative audits.

ARSA also requested a meeting to discuss survey results and any discrepancies before FAA implementation of guidance or policy changes.

ARSA plans to independently verify the FAA’s survey results by coordinating its own survey in the first quarter of 2012.
