FAA Adopts ARSA’s AC 145-11 Suggestions
December 12, 2012
On Nov. 28, the FAA revised Advisory Circular (AC) 145-11A, titled “Repair Station Guidance with the Safety Agreement between the United States and the European Union.” The updated document incorporates ARSA’s suggested improvements to the previous version.
The AC provides guidance on U.S.-based repair stations obtaining, renewing, or amending EASA Part-145 approval under the U.S./European Community aviation safety agreement and corresponding Maintenance Annex Guidance (MAG). ARSA’s recommendations included a more detailed description of the relationship between the agreement and the MAG, and tied the AC directly to the MAG in order to eliminate potential confusion from future MAG revisions.
