ARSA Stresses Aviation Safety in Television Interview

In an interview with Long Island, New York television station News 12, ARSA Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Craig Fabian stressed the maintenance industry’s unwavering commitment to safety.

“Safety is the number one priority for our members; it is paramount in the industry,” Fabian tells reporter Drew Scott.

While the news report notes “various industry groups refused to comment for this story,” ARSA was happy for the opportunity to underline the maintenance industry’s stance on safety.

Using the resources of the Positive Publicity Campaign, the Association looks for ways to share the industry’s advantages for the global aviation industry. ARSA agreed to appear on-camera to discuss how maintenance professionals implement FAA Airworthiness Directives and repair station compliance with those federal mandates. Though Fabian’s interview was cut short to meet airtime demands, he spoke to the many ways repair stations work in concert with the FAA and airlines to continually make air travel safer.

The Long Island station was focused on the delays and controversies surrounding the FAA’s mandated fuel tank explosive suppression systems. The story is part of the station’s annual anniversary coverage of TWA flight 800.
