ARSA Welcomes Congress

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – ARSA welcomes new and returning lawmakers to the 113th Congress and looks forward to working with them to ensure that aviation policy strikes the right balance between safety, oversight, and operational freedom while promoting the maintenance industry’s continued growth.

“On behalf of its members, ARSA is standing by to serve as a resource for lawmakers about the aviation maintenance industry and its important contributions to the safety, efficiency, and reliability of America’s civil aviation system,” said ARSA Vice President of Legislative Affairs Daniel Fisher.

During the next two years, the Association looks forward to working with lawmakers to guarantee the continued success of repair stations, including:

  • Removing the current prohibition on new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) foreign repair station certificates;
  • Ensuring the FAA is provided with the resources necessary to accomplish the agency’s mandates and priorities;
  • Overseeing implementation of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act so the law is carried out according to congressional intent;
  • Strengthening the small business protections of the Regulatory Flexibility Act; and
  • Restoring certainty to the tax code.

“ARSA looks forward to working in a bipartisan manner to craft aviation policy that permits repair stations to build on the industry’s exemplary safety record while creating jobs and economic growth in communities throughout the country,” said Fisher.
