ARSA Files PMA Complaint with FAA

On Feb. 29, 2008, ARSA filed a Title 14 CFR part 13 complaint with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) against Parker Hannifin Corporation for failing to provide required Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA). The complaint argues that Parker’s failure to provide ICA is contrary to the producer’s under 14 CFR § 21.50(b). Under the regulations, as a design approval holder (Part Manufacturer Approval or PMA) Parker is obligated to provide ICA to persons required to comply with the instructions, including repair stations.

The complaint is the latest in a series filed with the FAA to press the agency into enforcing its own regulations against manufacturers that continually refuse to provide repair stations with the required ICA. ARSA will keep its members informed of any future developments with this or any of the past ICA complaints the Association has filed.

A copy of ARSA’s PMA ICA complaint can be found here.
