On March 5, 2008, ARSA sent a letter of complaint to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on the availability of Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) or maintenance manuals. The letter follows complaints filed with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) against certain manufacturers that have consistently failed to provide ICA to approved maintenance organizations (i.e., repair stations) performing maintenance on their products.
It argues that the manufacturers are not only in violation of FAA regulations, but they are also acting contrary to EASA’s regulations since both manufacturers in the FAA complaints are based in the European Union (EU). Therefore, EASA must act on behalf of member States of Design and conduct inspections and investigations to ensure the proper functioning and development of aviation safety, including provision of ICA. ARSA will keep its members informed of any response from EASA on this matter.
A copy of the letter sent to EASA may be found here.
