30 Years of ARSA

In October of 1984, the board of directors for the Aeronautical Repair Station Association convened for its inaugural meeting. Industry representatives worked with the fledgling staff to define a set of objectives for the one trade group that would be devoted to the unique needs of the global civil aviation maintenance industry. This October, the association looks back on that milestone – and the years that have passed since that first session – to reflect on the work it has done and continue to press forward into the future.

  • Look back with us by reading the minutes of that first meeting, called to order at 11:00am on Oct. 24, 1984.
  • Stay tuned for more memories, flashbacks and celebrations from 30 Years of ARSA.
