Floridians in Flight: ARSA Shows Aviation Maintenance is Vital to State

MIAMI – The aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) community is critical to Florida’s transportation economy. According to the 2014 Global MRO Market Assessment released by the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) and TeamSAI Consulting, more than 16,000 Floridians go to work in contract repair stations every day; these businesses will pump close to $1.8 billion into the state’s economy this year.

ARSA’s Executive Vice President Christian Klein and Director of Operations Brett Levanto spent time with ARSA members and local government officials at an outreach breakfast in Miami on June 26. Together, they explored the vital role of aviation maintenance in the lives and livelihoods of the people of Florida, the United States, and the world.

A trade association based in Alexandria, Virginia, ARSA is the voice of aviation maintenance and manufacturing companies. The meeting – hosted by ARSA member Barfield, Inc. – provided an ideal forum not only for ARSA to show local industry representatives how the association works on their behalf, but also for South Florida’s MRO community to discuss issues impacting the industry’s continued growth.

“ARSA works every day on behalf of the aviation maintenance industry; we wear a path around Washington and across the world to spotlight the vital work being done by contract repair stations,” Klein said. “Getting to spend a morning in the presence of the men and women who do that work makes it all worth it. We flew to Miami, and the reason we landed safely is right here in this room.”
