ARSA Submits Comments on Part 145 NPRM

ARSA has submitted its final comments on the FAA’s proposed changes to 14 CFR part 145. While the Association commented extensively on all areas of the proposed rule, those of special concern included ambiguous reasons for denying a repair station certificate, a need to clarify the new rating system and capability list requirements, the creation of an undefined “chief inspector” personnel requirement and allowing repair stations to use their own quality systems when working for an air carrier or commercial operation. Look for a complete summary of all our comments and suggestions for improvements on the proposed rule in the next issue of the hotline. To view ARSA’s comments click on this attachment.
