ARSA Project to Measure Benefits of Aviation Bilateral Agreements

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA, January 28, 2011 – The Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) has launched a survey to assess the economic impact of bilateral aviation safety agreements (BASA).

The survey is another step in ARSA’s on-going effort to obtain economic data that will inform lawmakers, regulators, media, and other key audiences about the aviation maintenance industry. Other ARSA studies have quantified the industry’s footprint at the state, national, and international level.

This phase of ARSA’s economic research will measure the impact of BASAs, which reduce regulatory obstacles, making it easier for repair stations to serve foreign customers. BASAs are threatened in several countries.

“This project is critical to our efforts to make sure lawmakers, regulators, and the media understand how policy decisions affect our members and the international economy,” ARSA Executive Vice President Christian Klein said.

ARSA is seeking broad participation in the survey; any repair station regardless of location is welcome to respond.

Like ARSA’s past economic research, this analysis is being conducted by AeroStrategy, a global aerospace consultancy, and individual survey responses will be held in confidence.

ARSA plans to release the results of the study in the spring at the Annual Repair Symposium and Legislative Day.
